With stress at an all-time high, many people are battling burnout, a state of emotional, mental, physical, and often spiritual exhaustion brought on by prolonged stress. That’s why UA recently hosted a learning community meeting on practicing self-care and establishing healthy rhythms. Participants walked away with resources and information to help them protect their priorities, establish healthy boundaries, and make time for intentional rest.

Burnout has been recognized as an “occupational hazard” for various peopleoriented direct service professions, such as human services, education, and health care. The therapeutic or supportive relationships that such providers develop with the people they serve requires an ongoing and intense level of personal and emotional contact. Although such relationships can be rewarding and engaging, they can also be quite stressful. Pastors, clergy, and ministry leaders fall into this category.
