With journalist at Forbes, Lucia Okša, co-author of the book Non-burned out aka Nevyhovreni, and a mental health activist we talk about her personal experience with burn out, what burn out actually is, how to get through it and also how to identify the symptoms. Could burnout be a form of self development? Lucia with her co-author Zuzana Matuščáková did hours of interviews to discover in depth the topic of Burn Out.
