  • Hey Kate & Mike!

    I realized I never replied to the lovely shout-out, so here I am 😉

    Yes, there is a Japanese word for ‘overworked death’ and in English, the word ‘KAROSHI’ (過労死) is being used. There are hotlines and organizations people can reach out to if you or anyone you know is working too much and you worry if they will karoshi. Thank you for sharing how to not burnout because it is such an important topic a lot of people overlook.

    Grateful to be your ONE Japanese friend!


    • Kate Northrup

      Oh I’m so glad you listened in and are confirming the Karoshi word. Thank you for being my Japanese friend ;)
