Hiya friend! My latest book review is for Beyond Burnout by Amy O’Hana.
*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley and Harvest House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Below you’ll find the description of Beyond Burnout provided by NetGalley, followed by my personal review and star rating. Also, I appreciate you stopping by today! 😀
Rekindle Your Passion, Reignite Your Purpose
Does your job leave you physically and emotionally drained?
Is the stress you feel over work affecting your sleep, your attitude, and your relationships?
Have you lost meaning in your career?
You are not alone, and there is hope.
Mental health expert Amy O’Hana knows what vocational burnout is. She has addressed it in the counseling office, taught about it in college classrooms, and written an entire doctoral dissertation about it. She also experienced it herself.
Amy learned that the secret to healing from career exhaustion lies in being, not doing. When you allow your heart, body, and mind to reconnect with God, you will experience renewed energy, productivity, and fulfillment. There is nothing you need to do but receive His love and let it restore your passion and purpose.
Amy explains why vocational stress occurs (and how it differs from depression), how to identify the signs that you might be suffering from burnout, and what God wants to do to refresh and restore you.
You or a loved one can begin the journey beyond burnout today.
Beyond Burnout – My Review :
Beyond Burnout could not have come at a better time for me. While I am currently a stay at home mom, I’m feeling the pull that I’m called for more – but then that leads to feeling burnt out on the daily “have to” items on my daily to:do list.
Amy O’Hana really helped me see that I need to gravitate toward the beautiful in my everyday life. And she uses scripture to back up the claims that God has called us for more than mundane, which I found beneficial.
I truly believe that God wants us to be happy in our everyday lives. although slogging it away miserable is not a part of that at all.
She gives practical tips on how to overcome burnout and shift the mindset behind it. But, some of it may call for radical change. And each chapter raises questions that help you determine whether those changes are right for you.
I’d encourage you to take the time and really dig deep and do all the work at the end of each chapter. Because of the exercises she uses, I think it will be helpful and insightful.
