Things we need to normalise about Burnout

-It doesn’t mean you should be blaming yourself.
-It can happen to anyone.

-You can ask for help.
TAKE A QUICK RIDE WITH ME FOR A SECOND, AND SEE IF THIS FEELS LIKE YOU RIGHT NOW..
⦁ You feel inexplicably exhausted and constantly lacking energy;
⦁ You face brain fog – poor concentration – lack of mental clarity;
⦁ You have trouble of sleeping/ insomnia;
⦁ You feel stagnated at work/life and not knowing how to move forward;
⦁ You lack motivation, which affects many aspects of your life;
⦁ You decline social interactions & facing difficulties connecting with others;
⦁ You experience often headaches or feelings of being sick.
You are itching to do more with your career and your life:
-More growth and development
BUT you are feeling drained and in such low energy that even the thought of doing something makes you tired.
I have a question for you…
What would you do if you had your phone on 5% of battery?
Would you call or text someone to bring you a charger OR would you answer some emails and scroll in social media?
This is what burnout looks like, you can either take an action to recharge your energy or you can waste the remaining one into pointless actions.
All things burnout…
