Feeling Drained? You’re Not Alone

Feeling Drained? You’re Not Alone

Workplace burnout is real. Here's some strategies to prevent it.

Howdy, Partners!

January is Mental Wellness Month and what better time to revisit mental wellness than 22 months into a global pandemic, in the middle of SAD season? If you aren’t feeling burnt out or generally worn down…kudos to you! We want some of whatever you’re on.

On a serious note, we recognize that the past few years have been challenging for everyone. That’s why this edition of the PL;DR will be focused primarily on resources and opportunities to improve mental well-being in and out of the workplace.

We also dug into burnout even deeper on our blog yesterday with Licensed Psychologist, Jessalyn Klein Ph.D. Be sure to check it out if you’re interested in exploring more resources and ideas.

Are You Burnt Out or Just Extra Well Done?

There’s a fine line between being burnt out and #hustling. How do you know when you’ve gone too far? Let’s explore.

Avoiding & Overcoming Burnout

Burnout is avoidable. Learn new techniques to prevent it from happening to begin with.

You’ve Got a Friend In Me

Sometimes the best thing you can do for a coworker struggling with burnout is to listen & provide helpful resources.

Other (uplifting) news we’re watching

  • Finally, a billionaire takes on prescription drugs — The Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drugs Company launched earlier this month plans to sell 100 types of generic prescription drugs by the end of this year. The catch, he’s planning to implement transparent pricing. Prescription drugs have grown at an exponential rate over past years, some increasing by 5,000% over the last decade. We hope this initiative will lower the barrier to life-saving medicine that has been price-gouged beyond belief while pushing other pharmaceutical companies to do the same.
  • Bioluminescent plants are here to light the day — If you’re like us, you’ve certainly acquired quite a few houseplants since the pandemic began. While we love our chlorophyll-filled friends just how they are, recent studies show that bioluminescent plants could be the sustainable light source of the future. Cleaner air AND the ability to light our homes? Sign us up. (Pssst…free startup idea…PaaS! Monthly rotations of new bioluminescent plants to light your home. Think of them as modern chandeliers. Thank us later!)
  • Congratulations to Reputation for a fantastic round — Reputation, a customer experience management platform, announced a $150MM growth funding round this week. In tandem, they’re also celebrating surpassing the $100MM ARR mark. Huge congratulations to the entire team over at Reputation!
