Simon Cowell says he was “terrified” of work-related burnout

Simon Cowell said he was “terrified” of burnout from running his production company and decided to put his health first.

The music mogul and TV personality said he wanted to spend more time with his eight-year-old son Eric rather than perpetuate his “unhealthy workaholism.”

Cowell, 62, told The Sun: “I made the decision that my main job would be to be on television and not to run a production company.

“It was all just too much for me.

“To be honest, I was very nervous about burnout. I didn’t feel sick, I was just afraid that this would happen to me.

“I’m a firm believer in doing something before something bad happens, rather than waiting for something bad to happen.”

“I’ve thought about that a lot over the past two years. I’ve seen it happen to people, close friends of mine, where they burn out and you don’t want to be in that place.

It comes after the TV judge fell over the handlebars of his electric bike during a ride near his home in west London without a helmet in February this year.

Cowell was photographed with his arm in a yellow cast covered in scribbles by Eric, who he shares with fiancée Lauren Silverman.

The accident was his second on an electric bike after a fall in August 2020 that broke his back and underwent six-hour surgery to insert a metal bar.

Shortly after the incidents, he was forced to miss the Britain’s Got Talent audition after testing positive for coronavirus.

He told The Sun: “Because of Covid it’s had such an impact on everyone and what I took away from that was you need to put your health first.

“You have to make it your top priority.”

Cowell said one consequence of reducing his workload is being able to spend more time with his son, picking him up from school and having dinner with him every night.

“He really is a sweet little boy and I love him dearly,” he said.
