The burnout never stopped him from working. Nobody at the office knew about his problems. He took another drastic decision: he stopped working at the family business.
Then, suddenly, out of the blue, as a remedy against smoking, he started running.
Nobody had seen him doing any type of sport the last 15 years, running seemed like not logical.
Running became his new way of enjoying life again and slowly he surfaced from the bottom. He met another running pal and together they joined a running club. There he was taught how to run faster and cover long distances.
His running pal became his best friend and during the long runs together they discussed each other’s problems. Within 2 years he got rid of his burnout and was full of energy again.
