    ​Namaste 
    You currently have good coping mechanisms to deal with stress, anxiety, and self-doubt. You promote self-compassion and leave room for imperfection. You’ve learned that experiencing anxiousness doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with you and you can react to those experiences with curiosity rather than judgment. Know of someone headed for burnout who may need this quiz? Sharing is caring.

    Caution: Burnout Ahead.
    There’s still time, but consider this your friendly warning. Our personal and work lives are intertwining and overlapping more than ever, and the recognition that your day-to-day emotional health significantly impacts your career, as well as your health, relationships, and productivity is important to be aware of. Maintaining your stress is an ongoing commitment to looking inward, processing through difficult emotions, and working toward self-awareness and self-improvement, all of which will prevent more serious issues down the line. This process is not always quick or easy, but those willing to invest in themselves will see huge payoffs down the line. Beneath all the chaos, stress, fear, anxiety and fatigue, lies a perfectly happy, healthy, and thriving YOU. Ready to free yourself?

    ​Danger Zone!
    You’re headed straight for burnout. The consequences of burnout for individuals are serious––including coronary disease, hypertension, gastrointestinal problems, depression, anxiety, increased alcohol and drug use, marital and family conflict, alienation, sense of futility, and diminished career prospects. Knowing oneself is the gateway to so much in life. The more we can understand about ourselves––especially the messy, uncomfortable, unexpected aspects that we hide from ––the more freedom we will find to live an authentic, fulfilling, and beautiful life. When it comes to handling stress, invest in yourself; we are our own most effective, powerful resource. Beneath all the chaos, stress, fear, anxiety and fatigue, lies a perfectly happy, healthy, and thriving YOU. Ready to free yourself?
