Is this a case of burnout for Janet Mbugua?
Some bed rest is what the doctor has ordered for former TV news anchor Janet Mbugua, who has been experiencing back pain for days.
The media personalities, quit Citizen TV in April this year to take up a job as head of communication and advocacy at Red Cross as well as dabbling in emceeing at corporate events.
But it appears all these engagements have taken a toll on the former news anchor, who on Saturday she took to her Instagram page to inform her followers about her well-being, while also giving a hint that she may have actually been straining herself.
I’ve had this ridiculous back pain for the last few days, to a point where I’ve been ordered on bedrest. I’m not looking for a pity party! It’s just made me realize that we often strain ourselves to the point where we can break. Sometimes a little downtime, a good book and a phone call with the people we love, can put us back on the mend. Look after yourself. Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. I truly believe that. #LoveYourself ? Here’s my original photo taken by @lyraoko side-by-side with the #ArtWork by @justelsie_ ❤️
