What’s going on here

Venerable Nick, a Thai monk, shares why we are burning out and what we can do about it. The 22-min video is a nice walkthrough of examples of burnout and how we can manage that. He shares how the body falling sick is often a wake-up call for our mind when we are pushing too hard and how we need not wait for that to take action in our lives.

Why we like it

Venerable Nick touches on real-world positive examples of monks and local workers managing work, and how the need to do everything fast can blur the lines for us between work and rest.

“Of course we can do things faster but what is the point?…We try to do things with intentions and that intention is to use every activity to train our minds.”

Wise Steps

Find an activity that refreshes you. That slows you down from work and reminds you of the goodness of the world.
