Reduce stress (& prevent burnout too)

While I usually write about fluffy subjects like beautiful destinations and wonderful things to eat, one of the reasons I do this is because of burnout.

I had a burnout several years ago and it was one of the factors that prompted me to turn my old life, which had a few bitter lemons, into a sweet lemon pie life of travel and writing.

Are you feeling like you’d like more of a lemon pie life? As 2015 ended, were you feeling more than a little overwhelmed and like your to-do list was running your life?  Want to turn over a new leaf for 2016? My latest article, for a new digital magazine called RUBY, gives you some simple tips to reduce your stress and prevent you from having a burnout like I did: Fighting burnout when your to-do list is already full.

Check out the rest of the magazine too … RUBY “promotes female camaraderie, supports sisterhood and inspires women to make a difference in the world”. It has the kind of articles most of us (male and female) want to read, but none of the stuff that, in my opinion, doesn’t contribute to a happy life (like celebrity gossip, weight-loss tips and advice that end up just making you feel inadequate).

Worried about your stress levels? Here’s more on burnout and exhaustion and an article I wrote for the health website Nanuism, B is for burnout: Pay attention to these warning signs.
