Beating Burnout: Amy Rossi Of Expel On The 5 Things You Should Do If You Are Experiencing Work Burnout
Recognize and acknowledge your feelings, and be intentional about checking in with yourself. Meditation works well here, including taking a five-minute break to focus on your breathing. There’s also a cool app called the Mood Meter you can use to track how you’re feeling throughout the day. Taking the time to notice when you feel anxious, or angry, or even sad, and identifying what may have sparked those feelings can be a huge step toward addressing burnout.
In this interview series called “Beating Burnout: 5 Things You Should Do If You Are Experiencing Work Burnout,” we are talking to successful business leaders, HR leaders and mental health leaders who can share insights from their experience about how we can “Beat Burnout.”.
As a part of this series, I had the pleasure of interviewing Amy Rossi.
Amy is responsible for making Expel a place that everyone wants to work — whether they’re checking out a job description or charting the next step in their career at Expel. When she’s not doing that, she can be found striking a pose in a yoga studio or on a dance floor.
Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series! Before we dive into the main focus of our interview, our readers would love to “get to know you” a bit better. Can you tell us a bit about your childhood backstory?
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and a theme from my childhood was movement, I could never sit still and I was always in motion. I walked when I was 9 months old. My parents had to put me in kinder gym at age 2 because I was jumping on the couches, and after that I spent many years in gymnastics. My love of gymnastics transitioned to a love of dance, something that has been an important part of my life since high school, but it was really gymnastics that opened up a world of opportunities for me.
