Burnout is preventable
I learned that I can prevent burnout from occurring through the internal and external choices I make.

Today I started my morning with inner work, it’s a practice I’d like to keep. It brings me a sense of accomplishment and inspires me to take care of myself. I feel at peace with my emotions and with what I need to do to stay grounded.

I learned that Burnout is common, it was nice to understand the breakdown of the definition. I’m in the process of decluttering my external space, I realize it was a reflection of the internal noise. I’ve been working on meditating and changing my inner dialogue

I learned that you can address burnout in simple ways by taking external and internal actions. This is huge for me. I also learned that burnout is common - so why don’t people talk about it? I have resolved today to start talking about burnout and to create space for others to talk and learn about burnout.

Thank you for sharing some simple ideas to address burnout. They really do slip the mind when you are experiencing it. It is nice to keep those things in your mind kind of like saving for a rainy day. Thank you ❤️

I felt that these simple steps can help me to regain my life in a healthy way.
It’s a step that begins the process. I feel that maybe I have found something that can help me to not feel so overwhelmed all the time. This past year has been one of the hardest years of my life. And I’m looking to come out of this stronger and better and in a more peaceful state of mind.

I learned that I need to lower my daily tasks and expectations. I’ll still be progressing that way, rather than getting overwhelmed at how much I have to do and so putting it all off- getting even less done. I will also be having some dance breaks haha~ already feel better. Thank you💞

Burnout
I felt really validated and recognized after the session. I generally feel like I’m the only one who experiences burn out. I often feel like everyone else is doing great and I am failing. Intellectually, I realize that most people are struggling with something in their lives, but I often forget that in my emotions.

Burnout
I learned that I am experiencing emotional burnout. Externally I will cut down on social media. Just an easy way to cut out “static” from my day. Internally… I will practice feeling my feelings but consciously not let them consume me. Acknowledge they exist and remind myself that it’s temporary.

I learned that I am suffering from a burnout of sorts in my own life. I recognized that in trying to become a more giving person that I might’ve overcorrected in some ways. In the sense that I’m trying care for and attend to everyone’s needs all the time at the constant expense of my own. I think this week I’d like to externally try to lower my expectations of my accomplishments and focus on getting moments to myself through activity, mainly running. Internally, I’d like to take more breaks through my day for gratitude and meditation.

All II want to do is help my family and others my family either won’t let me in or they take total advantage of my kindness and love II have for them this is disheartening.
On top of all that, my husband doesn’t want me to help anyone but him. I just don’t get it. Why am I like this?
