Recharge your batteries to prevent or recover from a burnout
with Beate Trück and Suzy Sumner
- Do you lie in bed at night and wish you had a button to stop that continuous thinking?
- Do you have inexplicable pains which do not seem to go away?
- Are you more often sick than usual and seem to catch every infection that passes by?
- Do negative thoughts dominate your thinking and result in a dark mood far more often than usual?
- Are you easily irritated and feel like it has become all too much?
- Do you feel exhausted and lack energy to tackle the many demands of your day?
- Does your heart sometimes beat very fast giving you the feeling of helplessness or panic?
If any of this sounds familiar to you, they could be symptoms that you are not far away from suffering a burnout. It’s time to recharge your batteries…
Maybe you are at the first stages of entering a burnout or already recovering from it. Maybe it is someone close to you or a colleague who you fear might be in danger. If any of this relates to you, then our day on how to recharge your batteries to prevent or recover from a burnout may be relevant to you. Maybe you just would like to know more about how to prevent a burnout.
What will you learn?
A mix of theory, practice and sharing will be offered throughout the day. We will understand how burnout develops and what the symptoms are. Furthermore, we will discover the physiological aspect of it. We will use the wisdom of the group in order to share what works in recovering or preventing a burnout and also where one can find help.
In the afternoon, Nutritional Health Coach and Eating Psychology Coach Suzy Sumner will help you to understand how to energise yourself through what you put into your body. During busy and stressful times we often neglect to see how food can exacerbate our symptoms.
How can I make food choices which are easy and accessible and which will help me gain energy and nourish my body and mind – rather than depleting it further?
We will also be learning some relaxation tools and benefit from guided meditations and relaxations, so we can tap into our own resources of healing and nourishment.

Beate Trück is managing partner and trainer at Brussels Mindfulness. She has suffered a severe burnout herself many years ago and has been struggling at the time to find support. Mindfulness provided her with an opportunity to approach life quite differently than ever before. It helped her become more connected to her own needs and to take decisions that connect to her deeper levels. Upon her recovery, she decided to reach out and help others to better deal with stress and lead a more fulfilled life.
