Vendor Spotlight: Fabulous at Work
We’re all familiar with the term ‘burnout’, the emotional, physical and mental exhaustion that is caused by an overwhelming amount of stress. According to the World Health Organization, burnout results from chronic [work-related] stress, with symptoms characterized by “feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion; increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism related to one’s job; and reduced professional efficacy.” Between high-demand jobs and home responsibilities and overall busy personal lives, it’s not surprising that burnout is on the rise.
So how can we combat burnout? Fabulous, a company that uses behavioral science to help people make smart changes and build healthy habits, believes that the antidote of burnout is selfcare, and that our burnout is a result of not scheduling in, and prioritizing, the time to do things that help us recharge and in turn remain resilient. We have so many tasks pulling us in different directions and competing for our attention, we often find ourselves using any free time we have for things that bring us farther away from our priorities and core values, and deeper into burnout. Self-care doesn’t have to be fancy, and over-complication of self-care can be a major deterrent to practicing it, as can simply not even being aware of how you’re feeling at all. Instead, we can bring it back to basics. Fabulous can help your employees simplify self-care and prevent or recover from burnout by helping them build healthier habits into their day, just a few moments at a time. Think of Fabulous as your health coach that enables you to live your best life by teaching you how to create morning, afternoon and nightly rituals that propel you towards your goals.
