What readers are saying 🙂

24 months: that’s the average time expected for a full recovery from burnout. The syndrome is a growing concern around the world.

In the span of these two years, former technology manager Carol Miltersteiner documented her journey through burnout and its side effects (anxiety, depression and stress-related issues). She also reflects on our culture of busyness and how we see productivity.

A unique, honest memoir on chronic stress and mental illness, “My Morning Pages: Chronicles of Living Through Burnout” marks Carol’s debut as a writer. The book is a collection of the author’s writings following the exercise “Morning Pages”, introduced by the multi-talented artist Julia Cameron.

In My Morning Pages, Carol writes about her exhaustion, her overachiever personality and the effects it had in her personal and professional life.

It’s a glimpse into one’s process of coming from the bottom to the surface and emerging radically different.

Carol’s mission with this book is to increase awareness and reduce stigma around burnout, anxiety and depression, and to raise hope that there are better, healthier ways to live our lives.

the author

Carol Miltersteiner, an advertising professional by training, worked for more than ten years in marketing, having developed strategies for some of the largest organisations in Latin America and Europe.
When her passion for work and external pressures evolved into workaholism, Carol ended up experiencing an emotional breakdown that led her to completely repurposing her relationship with work and with herself.

At the age of 27, at the height of her Burnout condition, she was able to take a sabbatical, when she traveled alone through Chile and Europe on a journey of internal reconnection.
Today, she lives in the Netherlands and writes about mental health from his own experience with anxiety, depression and panic caused by Burnout.
Her purpose is to increase awareness of Burnout syndrome and inspire them to prioritise compassion as a tool for individual and social transformation.
