Another Round – Burnout and Overwhelm

Another Round – Burnout and Overwhelm
We frequently talk about balance on the podcast and the truth is that something has to give when life becomes hectic. But don’t worry, we’ll return to the regularly scheduled programming in January! For now, we’re rebroadcasting some episodes that are hitting especially close to home right now. Enjoy Another Round – Ep. 164: Burnout and Overwhelm!

Burnout often comes in waves — so to prepare, we need to have tools ready to counteract the feelings of stress and anxiety when they hit. Being overwhelmed and experiencing burnout is a toxic duo that weighs down all professionals from time to time. To cope, we often go on autopilot hoping we’ll overcome these stressors over a few weeks or months; but this isn’t an adequate long-term solution. These feelings surpass the general sense of busyness, and have the potential to spread into all areas of our lives.

So, what can we do about it? Does anyone really know how to get out of a burnout cycle? Is there a solution in sight? We may not have a singular, magical answer, but we have some strategies for addressing general feelings of overwhelm. Join us as we discuss our own experiences with combating burnout.

Zero Proof Swizzle may be a mocktail, but don't be fooled: This isn't your grandmother's fruity drink. A mix of fresh juices and tropical falernum mellow out with Fee Brothers walnut and peach bitters. The walnut bitters add a mature, smoky taste that whiskey Manhattan lovers will savor.


  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. fresh orange juice
  • 1 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz. falernum
  • 12 dashes Fee Brothers black walnut bitters
  • 5 dashes Fee Brothers peach bitters
  • A lemon twist, to garnish


  1. Place all ingredients (except the lemon twist) in a rocks glass with ice and stir well.
  2. Peel the lemon over the drink to lightly mist with lemon juice, then drop the peel twist into the drink to garnish.
