It's time to face the music that burnout is real, and it can derail even the toughest among us if we let it get the best of us.
Now, here's the kicker about burnout: The tricky part is knowing when it's time to check out, slow down, and regain your strength. But the good news is, there are 5 telltale signs you can keep a vigilant eye out for, so you can do something about it before you blaze out.
Today, we'll show you how to recognize the signs of burnout and give you the battle-tested strategies you need to push through and come out on top. Because if you're here, we know for a fact that you are NOT weak. You're a fighter. So let's get you back in the ring.
Here's 5 ways to know when you're burned out and need a break:
5. YOU'RE DRAGGING ASS ALL DAY, EVERY DAY.
Let's face it, life is tough. But if you find yourself struggling to get through the day, every day, it's time to re-evaluate. Don't be a soft-ass and push through the pain. Instead, take a break and recharge. Your mind and body depend on it.
4. YOU'RE LOSING YOUR MOTIVATION TO GET AFTER IT.
We all have things we love to do. Whether it's working out, reading, or spending time with friends, if you find yourself losing interest in the things you love, it's time to take a step back. You're not a quitter, you're a warrior. But even warriors need to rest and recover.
3. YOU'RE GETTING PISSED OFF OVER THE LITTLE THINGS.
When you're burned out, everything can seem like a big deal. But if you find yourself getting mad over the smallest things, it's time to take a deep breath and reassess. Don't let the little things get in the way of your mission. Take a break and come back stronger.
2. YOU'RE NOT SLEEPING LIKE A CHAMP.
Sleep is crucial for recovery and mental clarity. But if you're tossing and turning all night, it's time to take a hard look at your sleep hygiene. Don't be a soft-ass and make excuses for a crappy sleep routine. Make the necessary adjustments and get the rest you deserve.
1. YOU'RE MAKING MISTAKES LIKE A NEWBIE.
Mistakes happen, but if you find yourself making more mistakes than usual, it's time to take a step back and reevaluate. You're not a weak-ass, you're a fighter. But even fighters need to take a break and sharpen their skills. So take a break, regroup, and come back stronger than ever.
It's never worth screwing over your future to push yourself to breaking point in the present, so respect the boundaries of your body and mind, and honor your basic necessities so you can regroup and recharge as your best self. You got this, warrior.
