Being a carer, a parent or any other type of carer is an incredibly rewarding experience. You will be able to look after those who may not be able to look after themselves and that can be extremely fulfilling. However, it is also hard work and at times this can lead to exhaustion, stress and feeling burned out – but what exactly is burnout?
Burn out is a state of physical, emotional and mental exhaustion caused by excessive stress. It can lead to feelings of hopelessness and depersonalisation.
The symptoms of burnout include feeling tired all the time, lacking motivation or having low self-esteem. These symptoms are caused by long working hours that don't allow you enough time for yourself or your family; working in a high pressure job where you feel like you're never doing enough; stress from dealing with difficult colleagues at work; depression as a result of feeling overwhelmed by everything going on around you - for example losing someone close who has been part of your life for many years might leave behind feelings of grief which can be overwhelming if there isn't support available from friends/family members etcetera
You need to take time out for yourself. This can be as simple as going for a walk, taking up a new hobby or trying something you have always wanted to do but never had the chance. If your job is making you feel overwhelmed and stressed, then make sure that when this happens, there are plans in place so that you don't just fall apart at work - go home early if necessary!
If things get really bad then it may be worth talking through what has happened with someone who understands how difficult it can be; however I would recommend speaking with someone who knows about burnout before starting any kind of counselling or therapy so they understand why they might feel like this (and also because some people just don't want those services).
It's ok to say no.
You don't have to do everything.
It's not selfish or lazy, it's a sign of good self-care and responsibility for your own wellbeing. You can be kind to yourself and say no sometimes, even if that makes other people unhappy with you. You don't have to let other people's expectations dictate how much energy you put into something; find out what works best for you and stick with that!
While it's important to take some time off, you also need to make sure that you are still doing things that make you happy. Try something new! Try a new sport or hobby, or even just learn how to cook an amazing dish. If it doesn't work out the first time, don't give up--just keep trying until it clicks into place in your mind and becomes second nature.
If this sounds too daunting for now, then perhaps try something smaller: maybe pick up a book on something related to what interests you; watch some documentaries on YouTube; talk with friends from different backgrounds about their experiences; try volunteering at an organization close-by... The possibilities are endless! The key here is finding something that excites us enough so we want spend our time doing it rather than sitting around feeling bored all day long (which leads directly back into the cycle of burnout).
When you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed, it's important to have a plan for how you will take care of yourself.
When I feel like my energy is low, I know that taking a break from work is the best thing for me. Taking breaks can help us recharge our batteries so that we can continue working with renewed vigour later on in the day or week.
It's also helpful to set time limits on tasks that require lots of focus and concentration (like writing). This will help prevent burnout by ensuring that no single task takes over your entire day!
When you feel particularly low, go for a walk.
It's a great way to clear your head and it can help you relax and think about things from a different perspective. You'll also get some exercise, which is good for your health!
Burnout is a condition that affects many people, but it doesn't have to be. It's important to know what burnout is and how you can prevent it from happening in the first place. If you do find yourself feeling burnt out, there are some simple steps that can help get your life back on track again!
