Are you making time for yourself?

You’re constantly tired, life is just “too hard,” and your get up and go just got up and went! You heave a heavy sigh and wonder if whatever it is that you’re doing is really worth the effort.

Burnout? Could be…

What are the symptoms you might be experiencing:

1. Physical and emotional exhaustion
2. Lowered immune system response, turning into frequent bouts of illness
3. Withdrawal from personal relationships


“BURNOUT is a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands.” (Jay)


“Are any of these signs that Chiropractors have discussed with me sound familiar? Chronic tiredness, insomnia, forgetfulness, inability to concentrate and pay attention, physical dis-eases, dis-eases that you are unable to shake, loss of appetite, anxiety, depression, guilt, worthlessness, feeling trapped, Anger, loss of joy, pessimism, stinkin’ thinkin’, wanting to be left alone, a sense of being disconnected.” (Jay)


What can you do to recover from burnout?

Slow down and take some time for yourself to rest, relax and reflect. Let go of unnecessary commitments that are a burden. Lean on loved ones or professionals for the emotional support you need.

Also, leave your digital devices behind when you go home at the end of the day. Whatever it is can wait until tomorrow. In the old days, that was the default of leaving work to go home. If you wanted to bring work home, it required some planning ahead.

Remember that burnout is usually triggered by an emotional issue.

What is the best way to recover from burnout?

One of the best ways to help your body better accommodate stress is to obtain regular chiropractic care. The key is regular care. It is hard to explain what happens to people under regular care but it really is magical. Simply put, you just feel better overall.
