Fried Why You Burn Out and How to Revive. by Joan Borysenko, P. and Gordon Dveirin, E. Thank you for your interest in Joan’s books. Saying Yes to Change Essential Wisdom for Your Journey.

I’m loving Joan Borysenko’s new book, Frie. xcept I think I’m fried. I hate it when that happens. I immerse myself, write and teach what I most need to learn. How can you learn to manage your energy and find a dynamic state of balance? Once you pinpoint your temperament, how can you match it to the right kind of work? As you know, I am one-half physician/scientist and one-half yoga teacher.

You may be suffering from burnout, a syndrome similar to depression, but different in that it's not a disease to be cured

You may be suffering from burnout, a syndrome similar to depression, but different in that it's not a disease to be cured. In this work, the author, a Harvard-trained medical scientist, psychologist and pioneer in stress and health, straddles psychology, biology and soul in a fresh approach to burnout. No current Talk conversations about this book.

This Is an Invitation to Take Your Power Back! What happened to the spark you had as a child that powered curiosity, engagement with life, and creativity? Has it burned out? Are you feeling emotionally and physically exhausted and cynical, wondering if you’ve got what it takes to make it in this rapidly changing world? Burnout looks a lot like depression, but it’s not a biological bogeyman that medication or simple stress management can cure. It’s a disorder of hope and will that sucks the life out of competent, idealistic, hardworking people like you; and it will be an ongoing challenge for you to take your power back! In this breakthrough work, Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.—a Harvard-trained medical scientist, psychologist, and renowned pioneer in stress and health—straddles psychology, biology, and soul in a completely fresh approach to burnout. Joan’s deeply human (and often amusing) personal accounts of burnout and recovery; the science of helplessness, hopelessness, and empowerment; and the rich wisdom of people who have gone from fried to revived—including many of Joan’s vibrant community of 5,000 Facebook Friends—make this powerful and practical book a must-read for our times.

As another person said, "I really wanted to like this book." I don't care about all of her Facebook Friends. I cannot relate to the author at all. It seems like her own quest for everybody to know about her life and what she went through and how many degrees she has. The bottom line is this: I want to get out of burnout. That's it. I don't want to hear about Dante's Inferno or how many degrees she has or how many Facebook friends she has. Also, she wants you to do all kinds of exercises. Did she think that maybe some people are so burned out that they can hardly pick up a book, let alone do writing exercises?

In short, no author I know blends medical information with empathy and warmth as well as Joan Borysenko. This book is extremely precise, concrete and educational -- and at the same time, so wonderfully, embracingly empathic.

Borysenko approaches burnout from a physician's point of view. "Burnout and stress are different. Burnout is not stress, nor is it caused by stress." This is a guide to recognizing the symptoms of burnout, which is a distinct psychological and physical condition. This is why we need a Harvard trained medical scientist, psychologist, and director of a spiritual mentor training program to show us what it is, and how to step out of it.

Borysenko takes the various signs of burnout off the pedestal of "necessary losses." Yes, our world is overwhelming, but this specific condition doesn't just come with daily life. "Unless you've experienced burnout personally, you may not fully comprehend how serious this state of emotional exhaustion and loss of motivation can be, and how crucial it is to meet its challenge before you collapse into depression, addiction, or physical illness."

It's very moving to read passages like: "Not only can I no longer make toast, I *am* toast... I have nothing left to give and very little interest in receiving. I just want to be left alone" (xx). Who among us hasn't been there?

The questions this book addresses:
-- Are burnout and depression the same thing, or different?
-- In what ways do adverse experiences lead to learned helplessness that increases your chances of burnout?
-- How can you learn to manage your energy and find a dynamic state of balance?
-- How do you find your passion?
-- How do you mobilize courage?
-- What is it about living in the Now that is so enlivening?

Borysenko outlines 12 stages of burnout (how wonderful that they are so specific):
* Driven by an ideal
* Working like a maniac
* Putting your own needs last
* Miserable, and clueless as to why
* The death of values
* Frustrated, aggressive, and cynical
... and there are 6 more.

The most delightful aspect of the book is the inclusion of ideas from Borysenko's Facebook friends. I, being one of them, can attest that we had many conversations on the subject of burnout. She would post a status update, one of her longish but ever so readable, warm, embracing, and inspiring missives. Within the hour, it would get easily 150 comments. Many of these comments I noted and drew inspiration from. Thank you, Joan, for being a light in so many ways -- online, on paper, and in my heart.

I felt like I was suffocating from burn out due to too many stressful roles in my life and then I reread an interview with Joan Borysenko in the August 2011 issue of "Science of Mind" I had kept. By this time in 2013 I felt deeper in the black hole and knew it was time to buy this book. What helped is her own experience with burn out and the numerous Facebook people who also shared. I now felt "I am not alone" of which I was really feeling.

From my perspective the book is well written! It is now my guide to rise above this dark and exhausting time to "now" take
care of me is Number One and regain my authentic self! Is this selfish? Absolutely NOT! If the "light" is out in me, I have nothing to give to anyone!

This book is a worthwhile read for anyone who is experiencing work stress and at risk of burnout. The first chapter is the best, and worth the price of the book, describing 12 stages of burnout. The second chapter is also useful, discussing the differences between depression and burnout. It strikes a balance between making it clear that burnout is not depression and is treated differently, while not dismissing the very real risk of depression. I did not find the following chapters on solutions particularly helpful, which is why I rated the book at 4 stars.

The author certainly includes examples from her own experience. I appreciated her honesty, and felt that these examples were useful and illustrative, without turning the book into an autobiographical work.

great read, great reminders of somethings I know but have forgotten and some new idea's to practice in my life. I'm the type that tends to get burnt out easy and when I purchased this book I more or less just wanted a reminder of why I should do these things and encouragement to do them, because when you are burnt out, you need the encouragement to even want to try something
  • Jusari
This book helped me understand why I'd become so burned out in my profession as a teacher earlier than some of my colleagues. More importantly, she made it clear that compassion for myself was an essential tool in my road to recovery. Also, very helpful were insights on how those with tramatic childhood grow up with a sense of helplessness that can contribute to
burnout. I'm so grateful for her personnel story of burnout and how she found her way back to joy.

Nothing new that I had not already read about burnout. Seemed like more of a memoir for the author with some things I could somewhat relate but not all. One can do just as well googling burnout out and reading others experience.
