Can I be honest with you? I’ve been feeling pretty burned-out lately. But here’s the thing: I know all about self-care and in fact, I build several hours into my week for yoga and reading and spiritual pursuits which are all the reason I have not yet lost my mind (ha!).
So on the surface, it seems like I’m doing all the right things. But some days I feel like my brain is just swirling with obligations and commitments and it’s led me to feeling more burned out lately than I’ve felt in a while.
When I was thinking about the topic for today’s podcast episode, I decided to reach back into the archives of the Power Your Platform Podcast and create my very own burn-out booster guide.
Because over the past couple of years, I’ve interviewed dozens of women who have also experienced stress and burn out as a part of their story journey and they’ve shared some pretty amazing ideas about how to cope with it.
Because a big part of our story success depends on us recognizing the signs when we’re not at our best, and finding ways to adjust to ensure we maintain our own mental, physical and spiritual well-being.
If you’re feeling burn-out today, I just want to let you know that you’re not alone. It’s been a crazy couple of years, and we’re all feeling the effects of it. But we’re in this together, and I really believe that if we acknowledge how we’re feeling and ask for the help we need, we can not only get through it, but find true balance on the other side.
So sit back and enjoy today’s podcast episode highlight reel with three incredible women who share their own ideas and insights on how to move from burnout to balance.
Listening to these clips reminds me that I need to stop carrying everything on my own. I have some wonderful people in my life, many of whom have become mentors for me over the years. So in order to achieve balance, I need to be intentional about who I spend time with and not apologize for asking for help when I need it.
And I’d encourage you to do the same today! Take a look around you today. Who can help shoulder the workload? What are your priorities and does your schedule reflect what’s important to you? And finally, what can be put on hold until a time when we have the energy to deal with it?
