How do ya’ll deal with burnout?
I am seriously at a point in my life where I am just tired. And I know that’s not saying a lot because I’m young and healthy, I don’t have kids, I only work a 9-5 job…but I’m still tired. Mentally. Emotionally. Physically. All I want to do is sleep. And sleep seems to make it worse!
There are days where I just can’t bring myself to do the things I know I should be doing. I make excuses and justify them in my head and it’s so counterproductive. But I’m just feeling so uninspired. Each day just seems to drag on and on and I’m not necessarily looking forward to much of anything. My routine seems repetitive and unchanging too.
This could be one of the effects alcohol has on your life and at the time of you reading this, I should (fingers crossed for me) be on day 23 of my 30 day sober challenge! So hopefully part of this burnout goes away and I’m feeling better by the time this is published.
However, there are parts of it that aren’t attributed to alcohol. Sometimes I feel like I am headed nowhere fast…just driving and driving with no destination. I hit this point in college once too. Not knowing what I wanted to do or who I wanted to be; it feels like I’ve come full circle again after a few successful years. What do I want to do? Or who do I want to be?
So I want to know – how do you deal with burnout?
