To mark Mental Health Awareness Week, we turn our attention to editors and those in senior positions in the newsroom.

Burnout is a common reality for those with the pressure on their shoulders. But there is more to it than exhaustion and, more importantly, burnout can have a serious impact on an editor's ability to do their job.

Here to explain more in this weeks podcast is Zuzanna Ziomecka, editor of Gazeta Wyborcza and founder of NewsMavens.

As someone who has been personally affected by burnout and now teaches mindfulness as a way to combat it, Ziomecka explains the warning signs and knock-on effects of burnout, and what we can collectively do about it.

This podcast was produced with a support from Dataminr, the real-time information discovery company.
