As one of the most important steps we can take for preventing burnout in our jobs, sleep is often overlooked. In fact, it’s usually part of the problem. We start sleeping less and we try to do more and more. Plus, the stress and frustration we feel in our jobs can cause us to struggle to sleep well. If we are going to overcome and prevent burnout, we must get adequate sleep.

In this video, I discuss the role that sleep – or a lack of it – plays in burnout. I share a story of how I went through a period of burnout in my job, and how a lack of sleep contributed to it. I describe how I corrected my sleep to overcome that burnout, and I offer some tips to help you get more sleep, as it’s so important to preventing burnout.
