Now that my laptop and desktop are both repaired (for now!) I decided that I could do a bit of decorating in the style of mashing a ton of stickers close together that all have some meaning to me.
One of the stickers says, “Rest is Productive”. I’ve been thinking a lot about burnout this week (check out the first article share), and why it is so easy to treat any downtime as another place where we should fit in more tasks, more opportunities, more areas of improvement.
I’ve been doing a lot more rest lately. Some of it by my own choice, some of it with a feeling of being forced into it. It hasn’t always felt restful, but it has been better than what used to feel like a frantic pace that led to burnout in the first place.
How have you been handling burnout? I want to know what you do for rest, what’s worked for you, or what you wish that you could do. If I get a few responses and you indicate that you’re fine with sharing them, I’ll try compiling something together for next week.
Or if you have cool stickers to share, I want to see those too!
If you made it this far, why not share this newsletter with a friend? Or share with me some of the things that you found that you liked this week. Either way, I’m thrilled!
