Save Yourself From Burnout, the book

Groundbreaking Guide:
Save Yourself from Burnout: A System to Get Your Life Back

by Dr. Marnie Loomis, ND, and Beth Genly, MSN

If you are tired, becoming disconnected from your supportive communities, possibly getting cynical or snappish, or wondering if your contributions even matter any more — that's burnout!

Time to get your life back, recover your relationships, and renew your energy.  Using this book, you'll create your Burnout Shield, a simple visual system that focuses on your needs. No more one-size-fits-all advice. Focus on what you need and what works.

“Save Yourself from Burnout” features a complete guide to the “Burnout Shield,” a unique self-help program developed by a naturopathic physician and a nurse. Readable, upbeat, and often humorous, each chapter is packed with stories and science-based information, as well as quizzes, visual tools, and guided self-reflections. (At the back of the book, extensive source citations let you know just how much study and care the authors poured into their program, just for you.)

Are you…?

  • An exhausted professional
  • An overburdened office worker
  • A frayed tradesperson
  • An overtaxed teacher
  • An overwhelmed student
  • A bone-weary family caregiver

If you're worn-out, burned-out, toasted-through — or getting there! — then this book is for you. Learn the Burnout Shield program, so you can map your own path back to understanding, recovery, and loving your life again.

Wow! “Save Yourself from Burnout” is truly a comprehensive and practical manual for both better understanding – but more importantly – reversing job burnout. The expert and experienced authors’ view is one I share – that only each of us can ultimately take control of our own physical, mental and emotional health. Sure there are LOTS of doable, highly usable methods in this book (be sure to try out only 2-3 maximum at a time); but as important is how accessible the information and techniques are. This book is both really easy and enjoyable to read. “Save Yourself from Burnout” absolutely stands out for the quality and innovation of the methods the authors share as well as for being highly user-friendly in all ways.

I'm a firm believer in the old adage, “when the student is ready, the teacher will come.” Beth Genly and Marnie Loomis are caring and competent teachers, and I wish I had been ready for their insights sooner! Encountering the ideas and engaging in the activities in this book, I feel that I have company on my healing journey, and am not so alone. Instead of a once-through read, this resource will be a valuable companion as I continue to recover from burnout; I anticipate that it will continue to serve me as I practice better habits, so I can avoid going there ever again.

Hope is a mandatory ingredient for a fulfilling and abundant life. Burnout is the antithesis to this and results in a pervasive loss of this essential element to our health and well-being. Dr Loomis’ and Ms Genly’s book: Save Yourself from Burnout brings hope to all who suffer from burnout. This work also offers hope to all those whom have not yet reached their exhaustive threshold but have begun to slump. In truth, this book is a guide for everyone that wants to reassess, restore, and return to our original birthright-a life filled with anticipation of fulfillment and contentment.
