Bad On Paper

Oct 6, 2021

After our episode with Anne Helen Petersen about burnout, we realized that we also have a lot to say on the subject and wanted to do a follow-up episode about our own experiences with burnout.

If you haven’t listened to our episode with Anne Helen Petersen, you can listen here.

We talk about our experiences with burnout both professionally and personally, burnout guilt,and some recent realizations about “having it all”. We also talk about our personal tips to improve burnout, what we do to check in with ourselves, and how we set boundaries to prevent even more burnout!

Grace also shares details from her 40th birthday bash, Becca talks about getting back into routines, and more!
