Burning out as an activist

For nearly two years, I was a contractor for a non-profit who give resources and support to people who want to organize programming workshops for women. I was paid to do something I loved but learned the hard that it doesn’t protect you from burnout.
In this talk, I want to share my burnout story from the first signals to the recovery (I’m still in that phase). By doing that, I hope it will help other activists to not burn out.
