Avoiding Burnout: How to Manage Stress with Self-Care with Angel Ianakiev

Feeling trapped, depressed, and at times, almost numb?

It's possible you are on the verge of burnout. Chronic emotional and personal stress has leveled up over the last three years, with burnout on the rise globally, especially for women. A recent study by Asana interviewed over 10,000 workers across seven countries and found 70% of people experienced burnout in the last year. And according to The Largest-Ever Study of Working Parents conducted by Maven, working mothers are 28% more likely to experience burnout than working dads.

Something has to give.

On March 4, 2023, MDW will host Angel Ianakiev, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and owner of Anchor Counseling in Geneva, Illinois, who will be talking about redefining how we manage stress and changing the mentality of how we view self-care.

In this 1-hour chat, Angel will discuss:

  • Stress management tips

  • Ideas for easy self-care

  • How self-care makes us more effective parents, caretakers, and human beings

  • Why busy isn’t a badge of honor and how we can establish boundaries around our time

About Angel Ianakiev:

"Self-care is not self-indulgent; it’s self-preservation.
The first step is determining what self-care means to you and that there is no right or wrong way to practice.
And it the self-care activities you engage in don’t seem to have any benefit anymore, it's time to rework your routine and incorporate other activities to help you feel happier."
