Some of the primary causes of burnout are workload and a lack of control. In the coronavirus economy, where many people are losing their jobs, leaving others with extra burdens, and everyone is working remotely for the foreseeable future, burnout is increasingly likely. It may feel like there isn't much that you can control right now, but there are ways to help you relax and avoid burnout while working from home. We've rounded up some products that can help you unwind in the way that works best for you.


Disconnect and Meditate

Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is just unplug from the world. This meditation app has earned a 4.9/5 star rating on the App Store because it allows you to develop a mindfulness and meditation practice on your own time. Just pop in whenever to access any of their 700 guided meditation sessions, or create custom playlists, keep a meditation journal, set goals and reminders, and track your progress towards your mindfulness goals.

Their experts distill full books into text or audio summaries meant to be consumed in just 12 minutes, so you can learn about a new topic or discover a new world in just minutes.
