  • Do you have depression?

  • I'm currently struggling with SAD. I have been told I have a moderate depression which I'm treating with an SAD lamp and vitamin D. Looking to start counselling too. However I started a new job about 5 months ago and I love it but it's SUPER stressful. It's been a steep learning curve, my first managers job, and I'm working long hours and overtime to try stay ontop of everything. I've got help now as they have recruited another person as I was doing about 3 people's work aswell as just the job being challenging. So I see light at the end of the tunnel but I think this series will help my recovery! I do believe that I am burnt out and also have SAD. I'm coping but would like to learn how to help myself more. I think this series will give me that. Thank you Kati x

  • I'm sure this will be a great series! I hope you will do on one eating disorders at some point.

  • Bless you Kati

  • Hi Kati, thanks for your enlightening videos. I have 2 questions: (1) If dx'd w/ depression/anxiety as a child, is one more susceptible to burnout? and (2) If one really likes his/her job, despite it being stressful and requiring a great deal of travel/commuting and (unpaid) O/T, and that person has clinical depression/anxiety, how can that person know if they are suffering burnout or if they're experiencing a difficult and/or extended episode of depression (or maybe even both)? Hope that makes sense…

  • This hit home for me! I've been doing the self evaluations for burnout consistently lately and trying to make small changes. I'm sure so many people will relate to this series! Great idea, Katie!

  • Animations whaat? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Love this idea and love this content! I didn't realize this wasn't just an overused term for needing a vacation or being frustrated by your job until very recently. Looking forward to learning more ๐Ÿ‘

  • Currently riding the struggle boat @KatiMorton. I love that you are making a series on Burnout, which is something I find very common in society, regardless of profession, income, or race, or gender. Here I am trying to study for two exams next week, and I am #burntout.

  • All jobs are the same. Go work for the man and watch a little part of your die every day you're on the job. There's got to be more to life than this.

  • Can burnout occur in micro bursts?
    Like a day every now and then?

  • youโ€™re amazing i love u

  • I'm guilty of getting this.

  • awesome so now I know I'm both depressed AND burned out!!

    honestly looking so forward to the series though ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Series on eating disorder with an emphasis on that anyone with any body type can have one even if their BMI is healthy. For example, a normal or over weight individual can hve anorexia ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I'm sorry but I am in love with you.

  • This is such an issue in my profession (nursing). I love my job and my patients but itโ€™s all about balance at the end of the day. Itโ€™s hard to tear myself away from my patients sometimes but I have to remind myself that my mental and physical health is number one, or I canโ€™t be 100% for them. If I want to continue loving my work I need to take time for myself. Iโ€™m also so happy that you mentioned that burnout mimics depression in a lot of ways. I donโ€™t think many people know this. Most of the time when Iโ€™m starting to feel burned out my friends and family will start asking me if Iโ€™m okay. Thatโ€™s always a good sign that itโ€™s time to take a break. Even if itโ€™s just taking one of my days off to do nothing but fun things with my family and leave the laundry and groceries for another time then head off to work the next day feeling refreshed. It helps.

  • It feels great to learn about all of these information from Kati and from anyone else in general.

  • Well done Kati! Looking forward to the whole series! You may also be responsible for what might pass as a miracle. You get Google sponsoring your YouTube channel, AND your subscribers are happy about it! Incredible!

  • Hi Kati, I've been supporting and following you for a while now so I'm hoping you can read this and answer.

    I absolutely believe in what you do, but with the community growing and changing, how do you plan to stay relatable? I mean, big numbers = less connection. Everyone trying to get your attention. People desperately seeking help in some of the comments is also kind of hard to see. Perhaps that's something you could address in a video, also?

    Perhaps I've grown a lot, or perhaps I'm subconsciously really disappointed in not getting the bookplate (and not having anyone to contact about it), regardless I'm sad to say I'm losing connection with your channel(s). That's not to be mean or anything like that, I believe strongly in what you do, just thought it was time to use my voice.

  • Kati- I trust your opinion. Could you PLEASE do a video on "MRT- discovering life and liberty in the pursuit of happiness". I'm already a member of a 12 step program that's emotion and self care based but I can't find ANYTHING online that isn't from the creators of this type of therapy. HELP!

  • Oh my gosh I want to be you now I want to do thiss

  • Needed this so hard, looking forward to everything else you have coming!

  • Love this ! Please do a series on eating disorders!

  • Iโ€™m the teacher Iโ€™m supposed to give the homework. Not do it.

  • I need this series SO MUCH in my life right now. Much of what was said is SO true!

  • Hey Kati I just dont know what to do there is a classmate of my school who always insult me bcoz I cry a lot and I know that u may feel weird while reading this but its the truth .I am kind an emotional person plz can u say what should I do??๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

  • This series has come at the right time. I am only just starting to realize I am truly burnt out. I've been working 2-3 jobs for 3 years now, often working 60 hours weeks. I can't sleep well at night anymore. I hold on to anger and bad moods. I struggle to get anyone to make time to meet up with to do something fun and I feel so frustrated because I feel like all I ever do is work and have no fun or relaxation in between. Last Friday I broke down at work and had to go home cause I couldn't stop crying. I am so sick of working like this. I've tried to reach out for help on and I spent two months talking with a counselor and I felt like nothing changed. I really hope this will help me feel better cause I feel so close to a breaking point.

  • KATIE I LOVE YOUR SHIRT WHWRE DID YOU GET IT ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ also LOVE this new series!!!

  • When I first saw this video on my news feed I thought I shouldn't get invested in a youtube series. But while watching this I got chills, I can tell this is going to be good! way to bring your A-game!

  • I think Iโ€™ve experienced Burnout for a few months now.

  • Definitely going through that with my trauma therapy right now. I for 2-3 times a week and having to call emergency line a lot lately. I am completely physically and mentally exhausted! When Iโ€™m home all I want to do is sleep but then come the nightmares. Flashbacks the rest of the time. Feels like this will never end!!

  • Honestly Iโ€™m burned out and I watched this trying to bounce back

  • Personal Care and Development.. Felt burnt out so many times.

  • As a teacher, Iโ€™m currently feeling this so much.

  • I'm really tired of being a psychopaths entertainment as he tries to take my career away and destroy my reputation by spamming online. No way to quit defending yourself.

  • YES! I love your vision and endorse your initiative! I have experienced burnout in a major way. So I appreciate you embarking on this series and journey. Keep putting out great content (without draining yourself!)

  • This is so exciting!! DEEP DIVE DEEP DIVE DEEP DIVE ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  • Now when i say im here for this WHEN I SAY IM HERE FOR THIS

  • Hi Kati.

    I would really appreciate your advice on weed?. I am struggeling to let it go and if I dont use weed once a day I fall back into a very deep and dark depression phase which immediatly goes away once have weed in my system. It's ruining my daily routine and affecting my health.
    I keep hearing constabtly from fellow weed users and friends who have never even used weed say that it is not addictive. I am aware that my body can build up a tolerance to it but I am just really struggeling to let it go or even take a tolerance break.

    Any advice or knowledge you might have on weed will be very appreciated.

    Thank you.

  • It's awesome when you leave us with little homework. Thanks Kati. Sending lots of love.

  • Hi Hunni I've Ben over working from being a single parent to three sons and a 24 carer to two of my sons for so long now with no support, that I've just been diagnosed with depression, anxiety and mild panic attacks, as my Burnout systems was ignored.
    I was wondering if this was normal. And what I could do to help myself.

  • OMG I'm so excited for this series!!!

  • I nearly didn't watch this video as I wasn't particularly interested in the topic and certainly did not think it would have any relevance to me. So glad I did as it has absolutely hit the nail on the head for me! I will be watching this series with great interest and with pen and paper at the ready! Feeling like there might just be a light at the end of the tunnel I didn't realise I was stuck in!! Thank you!!!!

  • How can one deal with the fear of being mediocre when you can never settle for mediocrity?


  • You're animated now!!!! So cute. But not as cute as the real deal methinks…..

  • Queen Kati ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™‚๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ

  • I get burned out before and after final exams.

  • Can you please do a series on depression? I used to go to a therapist and she diagnosed me with depression but then I moved states and I don't know we just haven't found a new therapist yet, but I feel like I'm making up my depression or something. I'm not unhappy all the time like I used to be, it's more of just numb. Am I just making up my depression for attention??? I mean I was neglected by my parents for about 10 years so maybe I'm making it up?

  • That kati Morton animated character is cute

  • Love love love your Chanel you help me help my self so well

  • I would like to see you talk with more professionals and experts ๐Ÿ™‚

  • looks like taking the channel to the next level

  • I love this new series, I canโ€™t wait! I am pretty sure Iโ€™m suffering burn out I literally have all of the symptoms and the causes…. I work for hours everyday and never have time for myself

  • Can you please do something about Tics?

  • for about a month i've had a complete drop in motivation for school and i don't really care about life. i've had a half-assed suicide attempt that didn't do much at all. i guess i'm just depressed

  • Sometimes i wish i would get into an accident (no one dies) just so i can miss some work…..working 100 hours a week leads to quick burnout. Its exhausting

  • Awesome vid, Kati! Love the higher production value on this one โ€“ย looks dope!

  • This is awesome, thanks so much for your work! I'm working on a group presentation for a senior project in my college leadership class, and this series will be a great resource for our presentation on healthy leadership + workplace stress/burnout culture! Seriously love all the wonderful mental health content you make! <3

  • Thanks for sharing this with us

  • Iโ€™m a mother of four and I work two jobs and I am recovering from burn out. Itโ€™s taking me YEARS to recover.

  • This is a great series, an important one too. I would love to see is an episode on burnout in the medical field, or "helping careers"

  • How do retires burn out? Doing too much? I would love to know more about retire burnout (Oh I really HATE little flashes of video's that subliminal to our minds but we don't actually see. Please don't)

  • Can you do a series on ADHD?

  • I am so glad you are doing this series. I am a senior in college and taking 5 classes I have also just added on an extra course to help me prepare for the LSAT (exam you take to get into law school) and I can feel myself slowly burning out. At first I thought I was becoming depressed but soon realized my workload is just so big. I pull an all nighter once a week just to stay ahead and I do YouTube because it is something that I find enjoyment in. I think this series will really help me understand what is happening internally to my body from being burnt out.

  • Yassssss!! Iโ€™m so excited that you are doing this! I have been struggling with burnout at work and Iโ€™m so excited to gain a better understanding and ways to cope with it. Please make more series! This has been so helpful!

  • Thank you for this series.

  • Love it!!! Thank you so much ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ

  • Im currently on sick leave due to burn out. The demands put on me by two supervisor who had different expectations was too much for me to handle. My heart raced like a ran a marathon just reading their emails. Katie your video was broadcasted on my bday. I havenโ€™t been to work since. I think thatโ€™s a sign. I learn more from your video than 3 expensive therapy sessions, thank you Katie.

  • Great stay to the series. I especially like the cartoon Kati.

  • Great breakdown Kati โ€” I like the effort vs reward discussion.

  • Why is no one talking about the animated Kati? She is so adorable! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Wow thanks Kati for these new series type videos. this could help so many people. I even believe I am suffering burnout from uni work and I most certainly struggle with depression and anxiety so I am excited for where this goes. And you giving us homework to help is so fab. Thank you! but don't you burnout ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Burnout depression from having jobs that are terrible to work for because I don't get the same respect back from it. I hate retail but there isn't anything else for people who have Asperger's without going into debt to give money to the cheat government.

  • Aww I love the animations!

  • Can there be discussion also regarding burnout from caregiving? When you feel your whole life is going into taking care of someone whose health is failing, there's no "hope" there to say that this work is going to have a positive end- especially in relation to if it's a spouse you are caring for.

  • I was just crying on my lunch break thinking about how much I hated being at work and I can't figure out why. This is my first full time job, straight out of college, and even before I left University I already felt the burn out by my junior year. I'm so happy I came across this, it's so eye opening and helpful. Thank you for making such an important series, you are helping so many!!!

  • Not to be dramatic, but… that balancing reward vs effort thing is how I've been describing /living/ lately. There just isn't enough good to outweigh the bad, to outweigh how hard every single little thing is.

  • Her personality is more like my Portuguese teacher but upgraded to 2.0

  • I absolutely, love this series โค๏ธ

  • Cartoon you is AMAZING!!!

  • Finally starting the Burnout series!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–

  • I love Kati, but her description of burnout didn't fit me at all. I had a situation where everything was amazing. I was getting great jobs and clients, I was in a wonderful relationship, we had gotten an adorable healthy baby boy, I was getting tons of praise and acknowledgement. But that was just the thing: Even too much of "good stuff" can burn you out. I did not feel at ALL like there was an imbalance between reward and effort! On the contrary, the results I was getting from everything I was doing was very gratifying and that made me want to put in even more effort to feel like I deserved it all! I was a super mom to our baby when he was awake and worked my butt off with my business when the baby was sleeping without ever stopping to relax. It was just too much to handle. This resulted in a 5-year long burnout before I was able to work again. Something similar is probably what we see with so many YouTubers once they get big. They are getting more than enough reward for their efforts once their channel starts to take off, and then they get burned out as they work even harder.

  • Summarizing most mental health for FREE

    1) Journal your thoughts and feelings and reflect on them later to see progression of where you once where to where you are now.

    2) exercise – exercise will cause the body to feel invigorated and the act of improving yourself is acting as a bystander to make you feel confident.

    3) if you are anxious – breath deeply and remind yourself โ€œeverything is okayโ€ or Meditate in other words.

    4) Ultimately remember that you are not alone in life, and by scheduling an appointment people can help when it comes to โ€œnext timeโ€. Keeping those hopeful of a reward/chance at finding /nirvana/ if you will… sure you may be able to work with some individuals specifically but I can nearly guarantee these are the predominant fix for most people. * this is not medical advice – only a personal opinion

  • Iโ€™m burnt out from motherhood

  • You have no idea how much I needed this Kati, thank you!!!!

  • Trying to figure out if Iโ€™m burnt out or depressed…

  • Hi Kati, I enjoy the idea of deeper dives and full series on topics. I can't wait, thank you so much! ( I think anxiety and trauma would be great, but I understand if not, considering you've created so much on those.)

  • Wow. Stepping it up. That's what's up.

  • This is absolutely me right now. I have been doing the same retail job for 15 years. I graduated in December and in April got certified to do medical coding and billing. I also have ADHD. That makes it even worse. I had to open up my hours for work because I am now more financially responsible. I haven't been on vacation since I don't know when. Just yesterday, I had this intense headache that eventually went away but it took a while. My job hasn't been fulfilling for like 10 years. I got really complacent at some point and just couldn't figure out what I wanted to do for a career. Now that I have found it and I'm applying for jobs, I am climbing the walls at my current job. I know that I am smarter than my current job. Having ADHD means my brain needs more stimulation. I need something that challenges my brain.

  • these videos remind me of dnews lol. great video tho

  • Can I also say that cartoon Kati Morton is just adorable! hahaha!

  • I think I'm both

  • Can chronic burnout cause depression?

  • That image of the skull and the candles when she said "death" creeped me out haha

  • I came to the conclusion I was struggling with burn out… I did confuse it with depression I quit my job and I feel so much better.

  • Hi great video oh, but I'm trying to view the whole series on burnout, and I can't find it found number 1 and number 12.

  • I love this channel it has really helped me changed my life
    Sounds dramatic but I learned so many tools
    Thank u so much Kati I know I'm not the only โค๏ธ
