The Try Guys Take A Mental Health Vacation



the definition of burnout would if the overworked on the free time and hating what you used to love yeah not enjoying what used to love we're taking a vacation and you're watching the video value oh we didn't take that much time off about nine months ago we decided to leave our jobs and start a new channel we have been working non-stop i renovated a house had a baby i basically compressed the entirety of the stress of my 30s to the three months i lost maybe 20 years of my life during 2018 we put a lot on ourselves so we're talking with Kati Morton she's a therapist she's gonna tell us all about how we can actually take a load off how long do you think a youtuber perhaps needs to take a break to have the effect of a break I think two weeks my job is my hobby and the most fulfillment I get in life is from my job everything that I love to do is right here but you can't just do one thing always you can't our vacations necessary yes because we all need breaks I like working so just be fine what's the deal with burnout burnout the term was coined in the 1970s it was nurses in New York they were tired all the time they started like lashing out at their patients and the co-workers and the psychologists found his name is frightened burger that's if we created a therapist alter ego for Keaton yeah I accidently was sexy all the time okay Freud and Berger saw is that the effort they're putting in was really really high and the reward wasn't there it should be at least balanced they were working too many hours didn't have enough free time and we're slowly essentially hating my videos oh so how does it relate to YouTube the internet never sleeps so we don't often get breaks I feel like the first thing we're gonna text each other is like what are y'all vlogging for this video about vacationing there's a lot of viewers who probably seen this video and other types of videos from youtubers and they probably roll their eyes and say oh I mean like it's not a real job how is a youtubers experiencing with burnout relating to people out there who might even think that ours is less crazy than their lives the same things we're talking about apply to everyone and yeah other jobs can seem more stressful but no one should downplay their experience everybody goes through rough periods I think it's important that we validate each other and ourselves and know it's okay to be like yeah this is hard there isn't like oh you have to have this amazing crazy job you have to be a surgeon you just have to be put in a lot of effort and not getting enough reward occasionally one of us will go on a small vacation which kind of translates to the other three having more work we went to Palm Springs for my birthday and I spent the first night editing a video I can't turn off scientifically what's happening to brain when you're getting burnt out so when we're burnt out we're struggling to concentrate things we're just getting really difficult we can become really irritable it's because if we don't get good sleep we don't get REM sleep one thing I do a lot maybe worse than the other track guys is I have a lot of lack of sleep it's a weird way to word it probably cuz I'm sleepy when we sleep our brain fills with 60% more fluid the cleaning crew comes in pulls out all the dead dendrites and little synapses that maybe we're not using anymore right it's like we fluff off dead skin every day our brain needs to do something similar so if we're not sleeping it's like driving on the road that you've never repaved you just keep driving on it you know and it's like a little bumpy and the signal gets misfired and that's why we can't concentrate our brain doesn't get a chance to build new and get rid of old what role does social media play in people not being able to turn off I think it's because we're there's always something to engage with it's overwhelming I don't do anything without my phone I don't know how we ever pooped without phones it's so boring I should clean my screen what am I not allowed to like check Instagram like what's what's the rules here there are really rules because I do think there is a positive to it like connectivity engagement with people around the world like it's a powerful tool we have to make sure we're using it for those purposes and not only for validation I think this super important burnout is real and we are going to fight that today by giving ourselves a mental break all of us are go in different places I think zach is going to Mexico I think Ned is going to Texas I'm going to Tennessee and Eugene is staying here as my past attempts at vacationing have shown I treat them too much like work so I'm gonna stay here in California instead of a master of the night [Applause] [Applause] in a strange turn of events I'm actually spending the first day of my vacation going back to the office but it's not to work it's to get presents so how do you avoid the feeling of always being like behind like I feel like I leave work I've always gotten like seven out of ten things done on my to-do list and then the things I haven't done I'm like oh no I'm so behind list should never be more than seven items long I don't know why I'm talking crushing it and 7s 7:00 every day I just need to scale back my expectations yes it was kind of tricky to not to work day one literally I was checking my phone every other minute this is this is not very relaxing hello from Mexico it's a beautiful day and Zak's on his computer I have I have to add captions to one of our videos and then then I'm done with work I tell people that I like stress am i totally delusional or is that a thing no I mean it's motivating I get more stressed out with my head when my email inbox is zero I mean not to there's–you too much do it but it might be that you need to be needed in some way that is so true I would get the feeling that if I told you to leave your phone at home for like a full day you'd like have a meltdown so starting with like 1530 minutes like leave it go for a walk or something fine the best thing you can do now is to figure out what each of you enjoys and that actually does call PD stress I'm really excited for family time dad what you got I'm excited for days where there's no agenda I can just bloat and explore we heard that there is incredible outlet store on the other the highway Maggie and I got massages which were awesome did you like it how'd you guys find this place how many Tigers do we eat 23:23 tacos for about three hundred pesos there's a due to Sun fireworks on the side of the street and we're gonna buy something set up tonight I would help more but I have to record it Zachary I'm serious hungry be careful I really like being around people I'm realizing that like I am still in a phase where like I go out and hang out with people on the weekends you're more of an extrovert so that's like filling for you the one thing I'm super excited about in Tennessee is Nashville hot chicken I've actually never had hot chicken in Nashville and I'm like a fried chicken God sugar wants to k18 well to get 19 now that's probably when you're watching it but right now it's 2k 18 chicken waffles Bridey B is not the original hot chicken place in Nashville without a good one it's gonna be so good yeah it's hot for me it dances marvelously with ranch so what about you Eugene I like animals where my mental health brain and I decided to go where all the animals are already San Diego Zoo to zoos and animals are some of my favorite things in the world and actually got here to the San Diego Zoo right when it opened because I have actually never seen the pandas my family is all going different places so we're just gonna venmo each other some Christmas money and then we're gonna do our own damn thing cuz anyone else with their families Oh cuz that's what Christmas is usually about yeah in mommy's brand-new okay so in just a few seconds I'm going to surprise Ariel with her dream car I went out to the dealership I got it she thinks we're doing something completely different she doesn't know it's coming and I'm going to surprise her well I mean I love talking to people but I think

the ocean we can walk right down on the beach it's just a little slice of paradise every place you eat has the most amazing food you've ever had oh my god doing my best to just not think about anything that I normally think about every day is just putting out fires right like we never get anything done it's just reacting to the things that pop up just FYI our brains can only focus for 30 to 45 minutes at a time and then we need a break mm-hmm we're such like a white-knuckle society where like I'll just get through this and we don't realize it hey I've been like maxed out for I don't know six months possibly but I've just been like going for it and so just check in see how you feel I love the zoo chucko and Gary African lion Asian elephant Asia camel slender tailor cab Cyril I'm

Eve my brother and I planned an entire spooky Christmas adventure our niece and nephew had to save the for Christmas princes from the Evil Queen lose the trickster Becky the Christmas wizard and then

it the next day we denied it ever happening it was super cool little shoes and scarf be sneaky box Oh also crazy plot twist my best friend's brother who is also my brother's best friend it makes sense is a blacksmith so one of the things I'm gonna do is make a knife so this sword was quenched so he didn't dipped in oil during the totality of a solar eclipse and then the blade is Damascus with rod arm oh yeah it feels very practical MJ we're in Sparta Tennessee and I'm a blade Smith and we're gonna make some knobs today step one will Forge our blade the one affords the point first we're gonna hammer an angle like this there you go is growing these blades that sort of like living at a metal video yeah this week after forging we will go over to the kiln to do normalizing normalize what a word then we'll grind on the grinder push hard you don't want to try to pull it out of your hand don't fight it it will win okay you have the nervous look yeah well I'm pretty nervous I'm sharpening a knife and then we'll harden the blade by quenching it in oil I think it looks pretty good and then we'll go to finish grinding and sharpening that's not sharp unless it shaves Wow thanks for taking away from your arm here for us there you go this that's your first knife some form no thanks me any guy any word of advice to people who want to be blacksmiths like you ah yeah just have a lot of skill why honey no it's really uh it's really hard a vacation wasn't done yet cuz I had one more thing to do a German heavy metal concert I spent New Year's seeing the band rammstein Rammstein I don't know they're German I was like in a war zone of fireworks news II was supposed to be like this big blowout back did not do that but the one amazing thing that did happen on New Year's Eve Maggie was like hey your phone's buzzing a lot in the other room do what you want me to read the final day of 2018 we hit 5 million subscribers apparently we wanted to hit 3 million in a year and we had 5

fucking scary I don't work for BuzzFeed anymore I don't have to be nice the biggest challenge was you know a hundred percent disconnecting how so like what I do for a living so I don't want to be a hundred percent unplugged I just don't want to be 100 percent dialed in I'm not gonna say I didn't check Instagram I did that but I only posted once that's a big deal for me but most of all I think I
