On behalf of your Nova Scotia Lawyers Assistance Program (NSLAP) provider, Homewood HealthTM is pleased to provide the following newsletter “Preventing Burnout – The Importance of Vacation Time

An interesting phenomenon has been happening in workplaces for a while but seems to have intensified in recent years. More and more people are declaring that they are burnt out. At the same time, people are becoming more reluctant to take time away from work. While it’s true that some associate it with the whirlwind of changes that we collectively have experienced while living during a global pandemic, and we can agree that this may have intensified it, we think it’s worth some closer examination.

This article will examine what exactly burnout is and where you can experience burnout. We’ll also examine ways to counteract it through greater self-awareness and a change in approaches to everyday living. Finally, we’ll discuss the importance of disconnecting from the situations that may be causing burnout.
