Burnout and depression turned my life upside down a few years ago, I went from an ambitious high-performer to a lucky run if I get out of bed. I remember hating everything related to a career and goals that I used to love, feeling empty inside, really empty, I'm not talking metaphors here. It is a feeling that I do not wish on anyone. With ups and downs, sometimes feeling very accompanied and sometimes very lonely, I managed to recover after many attempts. Those who have been through it know that it is a before and after. Since my recovery, I decided that helping this not happen to anyone else would be part of my life goal. So happy to be part of this team :)

Hey Product Hunt, I’m Marcos, co-founder of Yerbo, the creators of burnoutindex First of all, thanks so much to @chrismessina for hunting Burnout Index! Huge thanks. We built Burnout Index to help tech workers to tackle their burnout risk before it’s too late. Over the course of our careers, each of us has had deeply personal experiences battling burnout. While burnout is a part and parcel of almost every trade, the tech industry is quite unique because of its fast-moving environment with high expectations on all corners, and the focus on the technical side of work, sometimes leaving the human side way forgotten. Does not have to be like that. To be our best, we have to feel our best and that’s starts with taking care of ourselves with science-backed, data-informed tools. We believe the future of work is burnout free, and we are thrilled for you to join us! We’d love to hear your feedback or feature suggestions we could include which would help you focus and do more of your best work! Feel free to leave a comment below :) PS - We'll also building the most accurate and complete burnout prevention tool for teams. Let me know in the comments if you want to know more!

While working as an Engineer at ThirdLove the constant bullying and toxic work environment had become part of my everyday routine. I wasn't oblivious to it, but had never realised of how much it was affecting my personal life and behaviour. Factors like cynicism and defeat are things I'd never taken into consideration, and those were really high. I shouldn't have needed this or any other tool to see it, but if it weren't for it, all those red flags would have gone unnoticed. It still surprises me to this day, how natural it had become, and I'm thankful I was able to notice and move on to a better job. Burnout is not something to be taken lightly.

@undre4m as someone said on twitter usually burnout is so hard to see coming, but can hit like a train when it does - Burnout is not something to be taken lightly and we can start to demand change externally and make changes internally.
