In this episode of Hidden Potential Podcast, you will learn about two important topics that are getting more and more popular, especially in the world we’re living in nowadays. The first half of the episode is all about BURNOUT, how to start identifying its symptoms, and how to effectively start treating it if you find yourself in this state. When we are always in the ‘go-go-go’ mentality, our body eventually will ask for a break and that’s when burnout happens.
The other half of the episode is dedicated to explaining the concept of CODEPENDENCY. Commonly known as a consequence of childhood traumas and fears, codependency can lead you to create a disproportionate attachment to another person – or to a substance, for example – therefore creating even more of a destructive behavior. You will learn everything about these two topics with today’s guest Victoria Albina!
“As you raise awareness of when you are in this habit of sourcing your worth and your wellness from others, when you are trying to manipulate others […], when you find yourself doing those things… pause, breathe, come back to your body as much as is possible and safe for you and ask yourself: how old is the part of me that just got offended?” – Victoria Albina
