The first thing is to remember these three pieces (yep, #1 is a three-fer): Remember that 1) You are worthy, 2) You are lovable (and your workload has nothing to do with either of those), and 3) what you do each day does matter! You are making a difference. That’s hard to keep in mind sometimes when we don’t always see the end result of our efforts. You wouldn’t be asked to do what you’re doing if it weren’t needed.

Millions of Americans are returning back to work after being home during the pandemic. While this has been exciting for many, some are feeling burned out by their work. What do you do if you are feeling burned out by your work? How do you reverse it? How can you “get your mojo back”? What can employers do to help their staff reverse burnout?
