Mindfulness and burn-out

Burn-out is an increasingly common occurrence in our society. We keep setting higher standards for ourselves. We have to multitask at home and at work things change rapidly, requiring us to be highly adaptive. Many of us follow mindfulness trainings these days, often after having had a burn-out, or in seeking to prevent one. During these trainings, you learn for the first time to pay attention to what really happens within you, and you may discover how to change your reaction patterns. After a training, you can often go a long way without any problems. Yet, after some time you may lapse back to your old habits. Then, you may begin to desire to get to know yourself even better and more profoundly.
