89: ADHD and Burnout: Navigating the Connection | Guest – Brendan Mahan

ADHD and Burnout!!! I can not get enough of this topic, so I decided to have a candid conversation about it with my special guest Brendan Mahan, host of ADHD Essentials Podcast and ADHD Coach.  

“Is it the Fish or the Water? Is the fish sick because the fish is sick? or is the fish sick, Because it’s swimming in a toxic ocean.” Brendan unpacks this concept so beautifully in this episode. (Yes we do get into politics in this talk) 

We covered various aspects of how those with ADHD might experience burnout and how to move through it. 

Thank you Brendan for being an amazing guest, really enjoyed this rich conversation and your wisdom.
