Moments that make us


How to recover

Season 1, Ep. 4

Being called an "emotional female" was a turning point for Dr Yumiko Kadata that put her on the path to writing a book by the same name.

Also on that path was her resignation from the hospital where she was working, which occurred on her 24th day in a row of working, including 24 hours.

It would be another 18 months before she could properly sleep again. Diagnosed with major depression, insomnia remained a significant issue. 

Speaking with Shivani Gopal, Dr Kadata shares more on the moments that made her -- especially on her path to recovering from burnout.

She issues some powerful advice on burnout, and the need for institutions and employers to take more responsibility for the working conditions they put on staff.
