burnout fromt the pandemic is real

With so many people now both living and working from home amid the coronavirus pandemic, work burnout and fatigue is inevitable. Join as Sofia explores the roots of the self-care movement and pushes back against grind culture.

Digressions include how to handle the big feels that go hand-in-hand with working from home during a global pandemic, app jobs, dealing with art block, and why we must reject the starving artist stereotype.
