Banish Burnout Toolkit
Welcome to the Banish Burnout Toolkit™
The Banish Burnout Toolkit™ is a workbook designed to help you learn how to change your reactions to stress from the inside out, so you can prevent burnout. This book is based on my Banish Burnout: Move from Stress to Success™ workshop, that engages teams to stop and take stock of their reactions to stress, where they came from, and how to change them. This workbook takes you and your teams step-by-step through the journey of untangling your negative patterns to effect real behavior change for life.
The Banish Burnout Tookit™ workbook is available for all participants of my Banish Burnout: Move from Stress to Success™ workshops. Visit my Speaking Page to learn more.

Foreword by Rick Hecht, LMFT – Mental Health & Wellbeing Expert
Stress is an inevitable, and necessary part of life, but it can be motivating or destructive.
The negative impact that stress and burnout have on our health, happiness, and productivity is well-documented and widely accepted. Stressors can lead to unhealthy choices: stress-eating, depression-fueled lethargy, and the abuse of drugs, alcohol, and nicotine.
In the Banish Burnout Toolkit™, Janice Litvin combines her passion, experience, and expertise for health and wellbeing to deliver an easy-to-use, easy-to-follow compendium of exercises, activities and information to help manage stress, modify maladaptive thinking, and mitigate burnout.
She brings it all together, leveraging key components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, and Mindfulness.

Changing and developing new habits can be difficult. This workbook takes the complex and sometimes invisible aspects that make change difficult and breaks them down into easily and immediately accessible exercises. It allows the reader to ask deeply valuable questions to identify and remove emotional blocks, which are often hidden. That makes for a combination of simplicity and removing obstacles from the roots, which is absolutely brilliant!
