    Great episode! I think it is so important for people of all ages to educate themselves about topics like this. Personally, I knew I was anxious but never did I know that “high functioning anxiety” was a thing let alone something that could be the reason I feel so burned out at times. I actually started typing these comments while watching/listening to the podcast but then when the signs of burnout were being talked about it felt like it was directed towards me hahah. I totally am the type of person who NEEDS to be constantly busy etc., this episode really hit me hard. The tips, especially the self-worth tip, is definitely something I really need to work on.
