399: Recovery Has No End Point

Addiction comes in all flavors my friends, whether it’s drugs, alcohol, or working, the recovery that comes alongside addiction is the same regardless of the drug of choice.

One thing that I feel can’t be mentioned enough is that recovery never actually ends. For those of us who find ourselves struggling with addiction, we will never be out of recovery. We will always be in some sort of recovery from our addiction when we find ourselves faced with old habits.

For those of us who have experienced burnout, we will always be in recovery from our addiction to work and it will often be so easy to find ourselves falling into old habits and toxic patterns of overworking ourselves to the state of burnout.

We have to constantly pour rest and recovery into our lives to keep recurrent feelings of burnout at bay and I encourage all of my badass burnout friends to make sure that they are getting the appropriate amount of rest for themselves, not only for their own health but for everyone around them. 

Listen in today to hear a little pep talk on prioritizing your rest and recovery. You are the best version of yourself when you are rested, relaxed and present in your own life. Take a step back with me and let’s rest together while we grow out of survival mode and into our best selves.

 

“I would never defeat my work addiction, I would never defeat burnout. I will always be in recovery.” Dr. Errin Weisman
