Hi there, and welcome to Burnout 101!
I burned out four years ago, and spent 3.5 years recouping. Seriously. I kept thinking I was better. But then a few months would go by, and I'd see that I was stronger again. It was six months ago that I saw myself back at full strength -- once again full of passion, interests, ideas, energy, no longer limping along too weak to care about anything or anyone else because I'd been burnt to a crisp.
It is my desire to equip you to spare yourself the PAIN and slow rebuild of a burnout. It doesn't have to happen. If it already has, don't blame yourself for what you didn't know. But resolve to never go back.
A bent towards burnout isn't something that goes away on its own. We have inner habits and weaknesses and lies that keep us moving towards burnout --- or AWAY from it. But it is certainly possible to move away from burnout, and toward peace, joy, simplicity, fun, laughter, enjoyment of this very moment --- instead of having a constantly-spinning-never-resting-always-list-checking-always-worrying mind.
If you're really serious about tackling this, and burnout-proofing your life, consider joining the upcoming online group course called BurnoutProof. To find out if this course is right for you, add your info below and click the button. (This'll give you more on BurnoutPROOF, which is different from Burnout 101, the free weekly email you just signed up for.)
In hope, and joy,
