In essence Burnout is simply the absence of balance in your life.
If a mechanical part keeps going, it burns out. A tree sheds it's leaves each Autumn to rest and reset. It makes sense to us.
We even seem to understand that when it comes to our physical capabilities we can't just keep running, swimming, jumping - Something has to give.
So, why should we treat our mental and emotional well-being any differently? Pushing ourselves constantly without considering the toll it takes on our minds and emotions is illogical; something eventually has to give.
A great starting point is to reframe the concept of "balance" and ask ourselves, "What takes care of me?"
If we find that the answer lies in addictive substances or struggle to identify anything at all, it's a clear signal that we need to pause and reflect on the positive changes we want to make in our lives.
