Burn Out

Image

 Write about burnout. What does it feel like? What are your burnout triggers?

 What gets you OUT of the pit of despair when nothing is going your way?

Burnout feels like foggy-brain, like tiredness, fatigue, an inability to think and conceptualize a physiologic sense of heaviness or the desire to run from what I’m doing. My burnout trigger is working too long on the same issue without getting any kind of results or information, only frustration; for example trying to get my scanner to scan a picture for an hour to no avail.

Stopping what I am doing. Physically distance myself from it and go outside. Physical activity will release of the tension and fatigue. I will take a walk around the block. The in-motion body thinks differently. The alternating right foot-left foot stimulation helps to change the way we were thinking and move us from negative to positive.
