EDITION 2: Strategies to avoid becoming a statistic in the burnout epidemic
Our mission for bringing better days at work is building momentum!
Welcome to the Better Bits, Edition 2 where we share what’s been happening in Better@Work-Land, highlights from the podcast, extra tips and tools, and invite you to join the conversation.
First up, a lot’s been happening here at Better@Work!
We’re up to Episode 6 which went live on the 3rd of August. In this episode I chat with Jennifer Moss about strategies to prevent burnout, something which has impacted a lot of us since 2020. Check out the link to the root causes of burnout, which many listeners have already found super interesting.
Talking about ways to prevent burnout was a great continuation from my conversation in Episode 5 with Mollie West Duffy about emotions at work, how they can serve us, paying attention to who we’re comparing yourself to as a clue to what lights us up, and drawing our own lines as a way to avoid burnout.
If you have an idea of someone we need to have on Better@Work, let us know here, and we’ll work to bring them on to the show for a chat.
In the meantime, to help you find content that interests you most here’s where you can find a summary of the six episodes so far.

Things we’re loving 💛
- We’re saying no more often because being Better at Work often means saying no. It’s an essential part of drawing our own lines, so we absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this collection of email templates on how to say ‘no’ succinctly, politely, and clearly. They are from our working life heroes Tim Ferriss, James Clear, Paul Graham, and Naval Ravikant. And you can import them all directly into Gmail and start using them today.
