Burnout Be Gone

“Burnout is what happens when you try to avoid being human for too long.”

― Michael Gungor

Are you overwhelmed by the demands of your daily life?

You’re not alone. In today’s fast-paced world, burnout has become all too common, leaving many of us feeling exhausted, disconnected, and lost.

The Problem:

Burnout isn’t just about feeling tired or stressed; it’s also about feeling like you’ve lost your sense of self. It’s about constantly pushing yourself to the limit, sacrificing your well-being in the process. It’s about blaming yourself for not being able to handle it all.

Challenges and Pitfalls:

Many of us feel uncomfortable stepping back, saying no, or getting help. Whether it’s fear of judgment or failure, or ingrained patterns of people-pleasing, these feelings can keep us trapped in a cycle of burnout. On top of that, financial constraints, caregiving responsibilities, and a lack of support can leave us feeling overwhelmed and alone.

The Solution:

There is a way to break free from burnout. You can transform your relationship with stress and reclaim a sense of peace, purpose, and joy in your life. That’s where Burnout Be Gone comes in.

Our Approach:

Burnout Be Gone is more than just a course; it’s a gentle and manageable journey of self-discovery and transformation. Through guided practices, insightful lessons, and supportive community, you’ll learn to release the weight of burnout and embrace a new way of being—one rooted in self-compassion, resilience, and joy.

Every day, for 21 days, you’ll receive brand-new material that’s like an oasis of peace and self-compassion in the middle of your day. And each lesson is created to take up less than 10 minutes of your day.

I’ll be there to answer any questions you may have. Plus, you’ll know you’re not alone in your feelings of burnout. The moment you join, you become part of a community of people working on the same issues who can help you stay on track. And you can engage as much, or as little, as you’d like.

“Burnout is not the result of caring for something; it is the result of caring for something while neglecting yourself.”

― Emily Nagoski

About Your Teacher

Ann Weiser Cornell used to prioritize work over family, fun, and her own rest… and nearly burned herself out. Now she trusts her body to let her know when she needs to rest, and she lives a happier, more fulfilling life

Ann created Inner Relationship Focusing with her long-time colleague, Barbara McGavin, to help people learn to listen compassionately to all the inner voices. Along the way, Ann and Barbara developed a radical new process for relating to the inner voices of resistance and not being enough. It changed their lives, and it became their mission to help others transform as well.

For over 35 years now, Ann’s been teaching this practical, revolutionary process to people all over the world. With the Burnout Be Gone: Find Your Way (Back) to a Life You Love course, you get the benefit of Ann’s expertise and the chance to practice the simple, yet revolutionary process of Focusing with her gentle, compassionate guidance.

Ann is the author of 21 Days to Healthier Boundaries, Focusing in Clinical Practice: The Essence of Change, The Power of Focusing, and The Radical Acceptance of Everything. Today she is internationally recognized as one of the leading innovators and theoreticians of Focusing.

“Freedom from burnout means knowing your life belongs to you – and living from there.”

― Ann Weiser Cornell
