  • Kati, but when you’re a MD, with 50+ patients in the ER and having to deal with critical ones getting to your hospital at any given time, what you do? Also, when you have to eat (swallow) lunch because if you take your time, you’ll have 70 patients waiting instead of 50?

  • I feel absolute trust shouldn’t be overemphasized in a relationship, smartness is also very important. There’s a popular saying that “don’t trust too much because that too much might hurt you so much”. A Narcissist shouldn’t be trusted, they’re toxic! My greatest disappointment was discovering my wife cheating on me through the help of Cyberhackingsage who helped cloned her cellphone and i was able to read all her messages and uncover my wife’s infidelity without having to touch her phone. All i did was share my wife’s number with Cyberhackingsage and i got access to her Facebook, WhatsApp and text messages both deleted and incoming ones with a link on my phone. Thanks to Cyberhackingsage, now i have enough evidence for my divorce. You can contact him ( [email protected] )Or Text/Call and WhatsApp him on +15713758467. Thank me later.

  • #KatiFAQ hi Kati! English is not my native language so I hope you can understand ��… How do I know if I have a personality disorder? Last year I went to a psychiatrist for like 2 months (hahaha) and he told my mother that I have BPD and depression (that happened because i had a suicide attempt so he had to talk to my mother when i was in the hospital), I also have ADHD and anorexia nervosa. Then I went to another psychiatrist and my mother asked him if I really do have BPD but he told us that I don’t… so now I don’t know what to believe:( I’ve been reading a lot of this and seen all your videos, but i just feel like it has nothing to do with me. In my opinion, the only criteria I meet is the suicide attempt (but it has just been once in all my life!) and fear of abandonment, so what can i do? Do i have to talk about it with this new psychiatrist again? Thank you kati:)!! I love all your videos ����

  • Kati, it would be so interesting to see you have a conversation/series with Ask A Mortician. You could compare your experiences with witnessing grief in your fields and working with clients under sad circumstances. also finding positivity and pride in what you both do and the similarities/differences in your careers.

  • Kati, can you explain the combination of cptsd and bipolar type 2? Not the differences but how it feels when you suffer from both? I am 3 months in to trauma work after 24 years of emotional, mental and narcissistic abuse from both of my parents, leaving me with cptsd. I also suffer from bipolar type 2, which I only was diagnosed with just last year.
    Thank you so much for your videos!

  • I had a complete nervous breakdown and had to be hospitalized for 10 days due to extreme job stress for 5 straight years. 8 years of Lexapro did not help

  • Why oh why do you use this far away angle? I can’t even see Dr. Judy’s face. Closer up please. We really don’t want to see two of the camera men in the shot.

  • Love this video! You always look so pretty, but your makeup is so perfect! Your eyes really pop! Thank you, yet again, for another great topic. I need to do this when I’m busy with college.

  • i have experienced two really heavy burnouts. last happened 7 years ago. still did not recover completely! the only thing what helped was removing stress (which in my case is difficult as i strugle financially and this is a huge source of stress) and resting. resting for a really really long time. nothing else helped. and a common cause of a burnout is a heavy depression that follows it! not fun at all

  • • 1 I went away on a trip for a week and come back and played God of War on ps4 and felt like the game was more interesting and fun then the last time I played it….
    • 2 Another way to get rid of a game burnout is to buy a punching bag. I mean don’t go hitting it at 12:00am and getting yelled at by your Dad or Mother or Girlfriend.

  • I know this isn’t anything about burnout, but I really want to ask, what can depression, anxiety and stress do to a friendship or just social situations in general, personally I’m strugling with it a lot, and I’m just feeling that I’m some have loosing my friends because of it.
    And just thank you for making all kinds of mental health videos they have helped a lot. �� Just keep up the good work. ��

  • Thank you for covering this topic! I was in therapy for YEARS and this was never brought up. Once I got out of therapy and doing the “homework” of what the THERAPIST wanted me to work on, not what I wanted and needed to address, I learned about setting boundaries…it has been one of THE BEST gifts I have given myself. Everyone doesn’t always like it when you set boundaries, but when it comes to getting and maintaining mental, physical, and most importantly to me spiritual health, I realize that I am not responsible for their negative response(s) to my personal boundaries. It’s hard for me to sometimes maintain these boundaries as I am a people pleaser/empath, but it is necessary for me in order to have more peace and stability health-wise��

  • One thing that recharged my batteries when I was in high school was going backpacking. We went backing for four days every Spring break and every Fall break. When I backpacked I wanted to get completely away from any sign of civilization. We could do this at a place we went to in Arkansas. One time we were exploring the area right at the base of a cliff. Water never reached that place, and there were about six inches of the driest dust at the foot of the cliff. We found part of a shoe, a part of a kettle, and an old mining newspaper that was dated 1906. The guy was looking for diamonds. There are a few diamonds in Arkansas. I’d like to go back to that place.

  • How would I tell my parents that I would like to see a therapist? I try to show them that I’m sad and want help but I just don’t know if it would go well if I just flat out asked them…

  • I remember searching your video a few years ago on how to become a therapist, your channel has grown so much and I love it! Starting my graduate degree for Clinical Mental Health Counseling

  • Can it be possible to get burned out even if you do not have a lot of work. Like finding the work not interesting and feeling like even if you work hard you are not getting results, loss of concentration and being careless. Also having a boss who is highly critical and doesn’t appreciate you.

  • A weekend of doing nothing and maybe go for a hike is my way to reset and calm down. On this weekend i don’t want to engage with anybody it’s my alone time and sometimes i really need it.
    I love your channel and thank you for your tipps i really need to get better with “working smarter not harder.” I will defenitly try the to do list����

  • Soooo helpful! Thank you Katie!… Also, I can’t pass on this you accidentally say “work harder, not smarter” in your wrap up. Lol! Made me laugh

  • I love this video!!!! Your videos are great and very helpful. I think ur an amazing tharipist, your videos have been helping me for about a year now. Thank you so much for everything. Thank you for making me a better and happier person. I’m still struggling with lots of things asspeshily self harm but ur videos help me lots and make me feel better as a person. I think ur videos are going to countinue to help me thank you so much. Keep on doing what u r doing because your great at it. Just wanted to let you know ur an awesome person and your helping lots of people. Keep on believeing in your self. Also I have a question. If something very bad happened and the person I told will not believe me. What do I do next? Every time I try to tell someone a person denies it. This person is very sneaky and makes other people not believe me idk what to do. Plz writing back. Thank u

  • Hi Kati,
    (I wrote this on the recovery video as well, but was kind of late so I’ll give it a new shot. Otherwise sorry for the spam)

    I’m currently recovering from what I’d like to call a cognitive burnout or a stress related fatigue syndrome that happened almost 2 and a half years ago, and I’m finally getting back to a some of the capabilities I had before the “burnout”(without getting crippled by depression, anxiety or fatigue). Resulting from not having worked for almost 2 years, regular check ups with doctors, and a lot of C.B.T. (Cognitive behavioral therapy) and now finally being able to do some rehabilitative work training for 2h a day.

    But I find it a little hard to talk about in English. In Swedish we use the word “Utmattningssyndrom” which translates to fatigue syndrome, but as that is something else and this being more closely related to “burnout” (or a more severe version of it (or even occupational burnout as the symptoms seem to be similar) it’s a little hard to discuss in English as you don’t seem to have a clear diagnosis for this.

    It falls under F43.8A in the ICD-10 as “Other reactions to severe stress” and since I personally know a fair few who also have been diagnosed with the same, it makes it even stranger to me that we don’t hear more Americans talk about it, where the discussion seem to stop at “burnout”.

    So I would love to hear you talk about this form of “burnout” more, as you in the US aren’t know for your pristine working conditions and I can’t be the only one of your followers who suffers from this.

    Also, thanks for your great work

  • Great advice Kati. I’ve done the “to do” list my whole life because that’s the only way I feel motivated to get things done and feel accomplished. I’m really loving your videos.

  • omg I needed this so much! Just got a promotion at work woohoo, but ahhh the work load. Had complete burnout last week, may have cried at my desk for a few minutes lol. Feeling much better this week, but yes, this video was very needed. Thank you!

  • Everytime i think of exercise it makes me feel depressed. Also i have no where to exercise. Thanks for the advice maybe i can change one day.

  • okay tbh does anyone else feel like they burn out their therapist? i’m sure my therapist thinks my problems are way too much for her. she used to cancel about half of our sessions and hasn’t recently but then again i’ve only seen her twice in like 5 months. ahhh i just feel like i have so much baggage and she can’t keep up. i really like my therapist though!!

  • Thanks for the burnout prevention buffet Kati�� Especially defining terms like boundries etc. It helps a lot when you understand the definitions of words

  • One of the hardest things for most persons with a nervous disorder like me is to consistently and consciously slow down muscular actions. This includes trying to slow down your speech, typing on your phone, chores around the house, walking, opening tamper proof packages and a myriad of other tasks that can be tension causing. For example, the natural tendency for me when I try to get the plastic off a bottle of Boost is to get frustrated and more aggressive but a better strategy is to realize that you can take as much time as you need and slow down. This saves a great deal of pressure on your nerves. The problem is that unless we are aware of it we revert to our old tense habits so it requires constant practice and awareness (or mindfulness is the new catch phrase.) Unfortunately too, there are situations like driving, caregiving or a service job like a restaurant server where often one has to be at a heightened alertness. I think though in general we are more tense in our spare time than we need to be because we rush too much when we absolutely don’t need to. I see this issue even in my relatively well friends and family and certainly in myself. So maybe today take a little more time walking down stairs, feeding your pet and put a little more time between taps on your cellphone. Your nerves will be happier and healthier for it.

  • You’re the bestest Katie! I woke up today thinking “oh no I always burn out after things go well and I get busy! What do I do to prevent it?” ��

  • Hi Katie! Could you do a video for people studying to be a therapist? What to expect, what things that happened that you weren’t expecting? Is your day to day life different from what you expected it to be? Was it your plan to be a licensed M&F clinical therapist or did you plan do work in a different field at first? That would be such a huge help! Love your videos! Xoxo

  • I’m pretty sure working out will directly affect your skills in video games as well!

    Not that it will raise your character’s attack stat if you work out, but if you improve your stamina through excersize, I believe that that will increase your focus and concentration, which will lead to good and consistent decision making, even better reflexes!

  • Someone asked about having feelings towards other women and were questing whether it had to do with their sexuality or if they are trying to find a mother figure. I typed out this whole reply but I guess they must have deleted the comment right before I posted it. Here is my reply, I hope the person who asked the original question sees this!

    Kati has several videos where she answers questions about attachment to female teachers and therapists that I think may be helpful! As you can see by the shear number if videos on this, A LOT of people struggle with this! Check out the videos below:

  • My problem is on the long grinding in one specefic game. Important to note I’m not a gamer. This game called brawl stars requires me to go on long pushes, still actively and confidently searching on how to deal with fatigue!

  • At first I thought “To Done” was an error, or just a fancy way of saying “To Do”, but it isn’t! Interesting concept. I will give it a shot this week. See how I like it, and if I can keep it going for longer.

  • That first tip feels like my problem, im branching out too much, i don’t have a specific genre and just getting fatigued worth everything, not even finishing my games and just getting bored

  • I’m super interested to hear Kati’s opinion on education and jobs like that where you generally DON’T get to take a break for lunch, much less take a break every 45 minutes as she suggests.

  • I especially appreciate the last point.. I’ve been meaning to get back into excising. A couple months ago I hit a patch of mental health and I had almost entirely forgot the importance it used to have in my everyday life until that point

  • So recognisable, coped with this couple of years ago, also interesting about the glasses blocking blue lights… btw you can also do eye exercises so you don’t have to wear them anymore…:)

  • This is one of my favourite videos, it’s like those loading screens that tell you to take 15 minute breaks but actually motivating

  • Could you do a video about burnout and college? As a college student, I feel like all these things to prevent and treat burnout are helpful, but difficult when it comes to college life bc of the high expectations placed on students by themselves, professors, and even parents.

  • I am an artist with major depressive disorder. Started after/during puberty and I’m 50years old. I struggle with organization, boundaries and compartmentalization and burnout. Lol ����‍♀️ I have no answers, but painting is my only place I get peace. If my studio gets too filled up with crazy I have to take a few hours to clean up (minimally but that’s what works for me)

  • Tips:
    1. Addressing/aligning with your values
    2. Social connectedness
    3. Engage in hobbies
    4. Sleep crucial!!
    5. Healthy or healthier diet
    6. Exercise

  • I have set limits with my boss about how much I will work. I refuse to work nights, and then turn around and work days. It’s too much.
    I’m a social worker. I’ve seen many people burn out.

  • I really needed this! Thanks so much Kati for your helpful content, these are great tips❤I realized you shouldn’t only take breaks when you HAVE to, but try to take them regularly when you can.

  • When I follow this advice it improves my mental well-being. However what if your not even functioning past toilet & drink? On days when I’m barely coping, a relative can just drain my emotion away. As a fine artist I can create that “me time” from burn out for others just thro artplay

  • Hey kati I know this isn’t about burnout but I’ve been worrying about calories and feeling guilty about eating I weigh my self every day and don’t feel comfortable with it I’ve started to go a day without eating can I get some advice

  • Healthy boundaries: I will not eat lunch at my desk. Ideally I’ll get outside, but at the very minimum I’m away from my desk, usually in a spot where I’m not easy to find I’m not interested in having work conversations in my break time.

  • what do i do with a game like terraria, normal mode is mindlesly boring but expert mode is way to hard for me and i quit after failing a boss a couple times

  • Do you have microphones in my house? I literally had the discussion with my husband YESTERDAY about how I am feeling the real food burnout and how I needed to make some compromises for a little while.

    Thank you, Kate! ❤

  • The worst part about burnout for me is when you get home from work all you can do is lie on your bed the whole time (even on weekends) and not feel like doing anything else like your hobbies and passions. It’s always necessary to pace yourself and create pit stops in what you are doing as burnouts can be detrimental for your health.

  • Interesting tips! I play a lot of video games, and while I do other things, I think this video helped me appreciate both my other hobbies and games as well. Perhaps I shall take some time to hit the gym as well. Thanks for the video!

  • Playing just for for the sake of playing actually triggers fatigue. One should always identify their taste and favorite genre, just because a game is new or hyped doesn’t necessarily means that everyone is supposed to enjoy it or play it.

  • My biggest issue is I’d rather end up just a broken pile of nothing than disappoint anyone… Everyone else is more important than me so it doesn’t matter what it costs me as long as they are happy…. It’s a problem:/ lol thanks for the tips! Will try to implement some of them! Especially 1 and 2! Lol

  • I literally love you. Sad that I didn’t know about this video when I suffered from gaming burnout:D But when I played lots of Fortnite, I started to love games again:D

  • Good video mate, also mate i have been playing payday 2 on steam for 2700 hours +(I have 2784) hours on steam.I just want to keep playing like i did when i played it for the first time.The support for the game has stopped but i still want to play it.All i am saying is that everything in the game is easy for me and it gets boring after a while I can play for 300 minutes or 250minutes a day.How do I get my feelings back for the game?And how do i love it like when it was my first time playing it.Also new sub

  • I would like something about recovering from living in live long chronic stress as child in dysfunctional family. I feel permanently exhausted and tired. Sometimes I feel pain in my muscles from stress. I know that everyone will tell me that I should go on psychotherapy but I participated and I completely don’t see anything useful in those conversations. It looks like huge waste of my time. Nothing better happens in me by that. I feel like I’m getting behind in converting my life into something more healthy and better by participating in this. Every psychologist will tell me that I should take drugs but my emotional state is less stable when I take drugs instead of taking for example magnesium with vitamins B complex. When I go to internist they make me blood test and they say that everything is ok with me. I had to find informations about naturally age reversing and restoring the work of my mitochondria to have more energy in my body. Everything what really helped I had to find on my own during years and in my personal pain. Is this really possible that I will not have to search everything on my own and wasting months or years for recovery of my body? I have to sleep longer than ordinary people and I’m weaker physically that others. When I have to earn my own money it makes my daily life harder.

  • I think its the long installs and patches too. I am hyped to play the game then the 6 to 9 hour install just kills the momentum. Playing on hard mode could help that made a light go off in my head. I could agree that it takes the enjoyment out of it. But i get angry easily when its too hard. Ill give it a try though.

  • Hi Kati. Thank you for this series. I particularly like how you outlined the steps for burnout prevention. You make things easy to understand. I am in a DBT group where I have learned about creating boundaries and setting aside each day some time for self-care. It has made a big difference in my life. Thanks again and have a good week!

  • Can you please do a video about burnout and school? Most of the info out there is only for people with jobs, not school, and especially with university, you can’t just take a day off, or have a free weekend to do something fun. Even with taking 3 courses a semester (instead of 5) I can’t get anywhere and keep failing classes that I shouldn’t. As much as I wish I could drop out half way through the semester, it’s really expensive, and I would like to get a degree eventually. Like not bringing work home that was mentioned, well school is designed to take your work home, that’s why it’s called homework. I do have some health issues I’m dealing with, but school is really hard, especially when the only space in the house quiet enough to work on homework, is my room. My stepdad is the most annoying human I’ve ever had to deal with, as his habbits, are the exact same things that drive me crazy. I’m glad I live with my mom because she makes me good food because I’m too exhausted to anything else. Especially those papers that take a week to write… University goes against (or doesn’t allow) everything said here, and I’m really thinking about part time.

  • I wanted to complete 100% with all the DLC in AC odessy before moving on to other AC itles
    Its like I have an obligation to finish one game 100% before moving on to any other in the genre

    Sometimes gaming doesn’t feel like fun and more of a checklist
    Know what I mean

  • Thank you for this helpful video! I’ll do my best to follow your advice! A part two to this video would be muchly appreciated! Have a great day!

  • One of the things I’ve done is to give myself some grace and compassion on my mentally unwell days. I have small tasks that I take on at work when I don’t feel that I can take on a big project. That has helped me to avoid crashing and still makes me feel accomplished

  • It’s funny that you ranted about exercise because when I was in the gym 6 days a week obsessed with it, I was also more depressed, anxious, and miserable all around.

  • I know I’m way late to the party on this, but I love to-done lists, and I love that you call them that as well. They’re a great way to fight anxiety and depression. When my brain starts to tell me I haven’t done anything, I can refer to my to-done list to show it all the ways it’s wrong. And when I’m really struggling, “got dressed” and “took shower” are absolutely on there, because sometimes they are huge victories.

  • I got fibromyalgia and Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)/ME.
    Just listen to your body!! And its signals! Please try to be aware of that.
    I went in constant stress over yeaaaars, now im chronic ill for the rest of my life.

  • wish you guys filmed like this more instead of the zoom ins. literally gives me a headache we can see your faces just fine in full view.

  • I’ve been playing since the early 80’s. Have had several gaming burnouts where no game gave me joy anymore. Just played for the sake of it. Although I sort of stopped and didn’t play that much anymore I still kept buying. Dozens of sealed ps3 and ps4 games on the shelves right now.
    Huge backlog of around 30 ps3 games and 60 ps4 games still untouched in seal.

    Untill recently, I started playing again as a result of a pause…
    Right now I’m kind of back into gaming but still not at a level I used to enjoy it as when I was in my 10’s and 20’s.
    I play with my sons some Mario or whatever but when alone I rather watch some movies or whatever.

    It’s also got to do with age and experience. In a few weeks turning 40 and by now, like a lot of my fellow gamers of age, I literally seen it all. Few games actually spark my interest like they used to. Especially the shooter genre which was one of my favourites, I played it for almost 10 years straight every day untill I got an shooter overdose. One Cod and BF to many… I don’t play them anymore, not online at least.

    But as an allrounder i like almost every genre so started playing other genres again.

    Just finished Yakuza 0 which I really enjoyed and it sparked the fire again. Every day played for hours on end. After that Red dead 2 and God of War. Now started replaying Mass effect 3.

    Also refound my love for fighters again. They are flashy, arcadish, easy to just smack in your console and play for 10 to 20 minutes without being lost in 100 sub-menus, to big open world maps or dragging storylines. Also enjoy myself some retro 80’s games at the moment for short but fun sessions.

    As a longtime hard-core gamer my number 1 tip(s) would be, don’t force yourself to enjoy it, take a pause if needed, and above all,
    Variety is the key.

    Guess it’s all part of the…. game.

  • Thankyou!

    Don’t u have a video on sleep disorders?
    Actually I always study my DSM with ur videos & I have a quiz tomorrow n I wanted to watch ur videos!��

  • Hey Kati! This is a great video. I love the specific advice on planning your day and figuring out what to work on. Your last step, delegating, would be useful to me if I could afford to do so, but I don’t have that kind of income to hire things out to people. How do we tackle lightening our workload when that isn’t an option?

  • I was doing dishes and looking for something to listen to when your video popped up. This was just the message I needed to hear today. Thank you!

  • great vid, and I agree like once I played osu! for 5 hours non stop then a vein in my hand started bumping like the vein was visible xd after that I maneged to walk daily and after 2 days my bumping vein stopped bumping (btw I am not seeing you online on ps a lot and what are you thinking about overwatch es current state?)
