You have an important job and you’re motivated to do it well. You may even work in an environment where overtime is the norm and workaholism is worn as a badge of honour. But the truth is, all those pressures can seriously drain your mental and emotional resources. You may feel like you can’t turn off your thoughts about work, and that you have no energy left for your family, your partner or your friends – let alone yourself. The job you were once passionate about, you now dread going to each morning. You feel completely and utterly drained.
This is what burnout feels like. And it’s not just unpleasant, it’s also seriously unhealthy and surprisingly counterproductive. Chronic stress can lead to serious mental health issues like depression and anxiety, and physical complications like high blood pressure, angina and digestive disorders. Stress accounts for an estimated 40 percent of work-related sickness and 49 percent of working days lost. In a recent survey, over half of full-time employees in the UK say they’ve experienced burnout in their current job. But unfortunately, many people struggling with burnout don’t get the help they need, and it remains an epidemic in modern society.
The best way to combat work burnout is to step away from your current environment and allow your body and mind to recover from the constant stress you’re under – and there’s no better place to do that than in serene, stunning Thailand.
We understand that it can be difficult to find effective mental health treatment in the UK, where private care is dramatically overpriced and public clinics have limited availability, especially for preventative treatment.
That’s why we created our Executive Burnout Recovery Programme. This immersive, residential retreat provides a necessary break from your day-to-day stressors and an opportunity to reconnect with your inner peace and sense of purpose. In fact, studies show that people who attend retreats experience significant improvements in their quality of life, physical health, psychological well-being, spirituality and gratitude.
