As I write this article I am on day six of my sabbatical and I have to share that I am surprised how burnt out I truly am for I thought I was taking care of myself. My first two days of sabbatical I ended up in bed with a head cold/sinus thing and even now I find myself sleeping A LOT!
It is amazing how quickly burnout can creep up on us and if we do not pay attention to the signs and symptoms, we can become quite ill. As I reflect back, I see that my warning signs where there, but I ignored them because I knew I still needed to push myself to get things done that I needed to get done, like go to work every day.
What were my symptoms or warning signs? I stopped eating healthy and was eating more comfort foods, I stopped taking my supplements/vitamins, I was having trouble sleeping for I could not turn my brain off, I would go to work and hope clients would cancel and almost resent them when they showed up for their appointment, and the biggest thing for me as a psychic medium, I was having trouble connecting spiritually.
Normally I try to practice mindfulness and pay attention to my physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, but somewhere along the way I stopped doing that. I am so grateful that I am able to take a month off for I know most people do not get this opportunity, but the truth is if I only had a week I would still be returning to work burnt out.
Do you know how the symptoms of burnout manifest in your body? Do you pay attention to it and give yourself permission to stop and rest or to do any activity that recharges you? It is ok to stop now and then and take care of yourself after all don’t you deserve the same care and love you give everyone else? Moving forward I will be honoring myself more and paying attention to the language my body speaks to me.
Awhile back I wrote an article on raising your vibrations and how to maintain a higher vibration. I have had several people ask if I could reshare that article so I thought this would be a good time to do that. Please click on the link to see the previous article.
