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.
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.
