The Imposters Club
Season 5 Episode 3: Are we booked, busy and burning out?


The Imposters Club returns for our 5th season, and this time we’re talking WORK. Sinéad’s pivoting her career, Melissa’s returning from maternity leave and the whole world is talking about how we can work better.


We’re in the booked and busy era, but 53% of women say their stress levels are even higher than they were a year ago – burnout is not a conversation to be left in 2020. It’s very real, very relevant and very much something we need to be aware of in order to manage and prevent it, rid ourselves of shame around it and work together to create a working culture that doesn’t make us ill. We’re joined this episode by Dr Sam Akbar, Clinical Psychologist and author of the frankly vital new book, Stressilient: How to Beat Stress and Build Resilience, to talk burnout, self-compassion and banning ‘good vibes only’.
