Late last year I reached a point of total burnout. I was stressed, I wasn't feeling well, and I just couldn't go on any further. It wasn't nice.
I'm lucky to do the work I do, and I count my blessings every day that I get to do what I do, and have the flexibility to be with my girls so much of the time. One of the problems I face is that there's never an end to work. There's no clocking off, and driving home... leaving it all behind me. I struggle with that.
Yes, bring out the violins. 🙄
That moment last year when I totally burnt out and stressed up to my eyeballs, I had to take a break. So I switched off. I didn't touch my computer, or phone for a whole week. At first, it took a little bit to adjust... I was so used to filling spare moments with checking Facebook and Instagram, and checking up on emails. Over time I started to feel the stress leave me. I felt the tension leave my shoulders, the headaches stopped and I felt so much better. After the week I was excited about getting back into work. I needed the break. ----------- Read more on my blog why I'm telling you to turn off the tech for a day this weekend. The link is in my profile. #makelifegood
