Notes on Burnout, Setting Intentions & A New Year

The Imposters Club
Season 3 Episode 7: Notes on Burnout, Setting Intentions and A Hopeful New Year


Sinéad and Melissa are back home with their mics to talk through managing imposter syndrome and living life on our own terms. Happy new year, and stay safe!


In this episode, we deep-dive into everything we learnt from the dumpster fire year that was 2020 (we promise there was something!), and how to complete your stress-cycle to avoid burnout. We turn, with radical hope, to 2021, and chat about how intentions are way more nourishing in tough times than new year’s resolutions.


We’d love to hear what you’ve been up to and your stories of feeling like an imposter. Email us at or contact us on instagram @theimpostersclub or on twitter @impostersclub.
