How ‘turning off’ can make you more effective and productive in your work
Do you get the Sunday Evening Blues? Monster.com’s survey says 76% of us do. In fact, the World Health Organization has recently classified “burn out” as a disease. It’s so pervasive, it seems unavoidable. But it isn’t. When we create intentional times of rest, research shows we’re able to be more productive and healthier.
So how can you beat burn-out and end the Sunday Evening Blues?
Sue Godfrey shares tips from her sabbatical, sharing tools to help you become both more rested and productive. In her presentation, Godfrey will share tools, tips and practices you can incorporate into your daily life-and into the life of your team- to prevent burn out.

About Our Facilitator
Sue Godfrey has lived in Muncie longer than she’s lived anywhere. Moving to Muncie in 1995 to transfer to Ball State University, Sue and her husband of 19 years, Stuart call Muncie home. Their adventures seem to never stop with their three children, two unruly dogs and many community commitments keeping them always on the move.
Sue has dedicated her career to helping people and organizations use where they are to get to where they want to be.
Most recently Sue was the Executive Director at Big Brothers Big Sisters, where she had the sorrow of closing the agency due to the increased expenses of keeping the children they serve safe. Since then, Sue has been learning the value of rest in a time of sabbatical.
