Have you ever had days when you have felt bored, overloaded, unappreciated or maybe even alone? Most of us have days when we feel this way. However, if you feel like this most of the time you may be flirting with burnout.
Perhaps you lie awake all weekend thinking about Monday and what kind of torture it will bring. You may find yourself missing work often because you just can’t make yourself go. You feel depressed, anxious, and maybe even experience panic attacks because you can’t stop thinking about work. You start to push your family and friends away because you feel like they don’t understand. If this sounds like you or you are someone who typically faces heavy caseloads, becomes emotionally attached to people you are working with, or becomes emotionally drained by your daily tasks, then there are steps you can take to foster self-healing and growth!
Here are some helpful suggestions:
It is essential that you take time for yourself and separate your work life and personal life. Give yourself permission to take a break from daily stresses and demands and do something that makes you happy. Your health and wellness matter most. Take a break, you deserve it!
