Burnout? We're here to help!
Burnout is a constant feeling of exhaustion caused by overwhelm. Sound familiar?
If you are anything like me, you like staying busy. You work hard, play hard, exercise, take care of your kids, cook, do chores, and maybe even squeeze in some social time or volunteer work. No wonder you feel overwhelmed. On top of all that, your phone is probably pinging all the time, commanding your attention, and you may find yourself scrolling through social media, comparing your hectic life to the scenes of sunset drinks, walks on the beach, and other leisure activities you just don't have time for.
It's a recipe for FOMO, followed by disaster. Constant burnout can harm your mental, emotional, and physical health. You may feel irritable, depressed, or hopeless. You may lose interest in things that you normally enjoy. You may feel cynical, frustrated, or even numb. Your performance at work may start to suffer. You don't feel like doing routine things such as laundry or cleaning, and as those things pile up, your feeling of overwhelm grows. You may feel incapable of keeping up with life's demands.
This continues to build until you finally get sick or get hurt. If you don't take care of yourself and give yourself the time to rest and fill yourself up, you will eventually be forced to slow down by illness or injury.
Let that sink in- one way or another, you will eventually stop and regroup. You cannot go on and on in a state of burnout. You can choose to stop, or life will stop you.
Now, the question is- do you want to go do something fun, something that makes your heart happy, something that you enjoy? Or do you want to push yourself to the limit and then recover in bed, miserable?
