Pushing Yourself Or Burning Out?

Thank you for having 4 minutes to explore life – useful lessons. Read and breathe slowly. 

It takes life knowledge to live in today’s modern society and balance long working hours, high target plans, family obligations, and all kinds of other challenges. So many people live the stressful life and feel how they need to push themselves to become better without self-care. Living like that can quickly bring you to the total emotional and physical bankruptcy. Unfortunately, most people do not realize they are on the way of burning out. It is easy to predict the outcome if you decide to ignore alarms and proceed to push yourself. There is no way you can notice what’s going on. It is like you are driving a high-speed race without knowing that you will not be able to apply the brakes. Certainly, at some point, you will try to deny everything because “burning out” is for “excusers” and you are not one of them. You were always a top performer, great manager, great parent, great worker, perfect for everybody expect for yourself. If any of these situations sound familiar, please, give yourself a chance to stop just for a moment and ask yourself: “How am I feeling? Do I really feel good? Why do I need to push myself so much? Is there a smarter way? ”.

And don’t ask just once. Ask,ask,ask! And you will get an answer. Unhealthy workaholic attitude is not the smartest way to impress yourself and others.

Are you ignoring alarms?

Some of the typical symptoms of burning out are:

  • Lack of motivation ( for social friendship, for exercise, for another working day, etc.)

  • Health problems ( chronicle exhaustion, digestive problems, skin problems, unexplained panic attacks, sleep problems, heart pressure, severe headaches, repeated colds, overweight, etc.)

  • Unbalanced emotional states (irritability, negative thinking, fears & doubts about performance results, frustration, everybody is annoying you, low level of tolerance, etc.)

  • Overloaded mind ( lack of contraction and attention, everything seems to be a problem and hard)

Is there something on this list that fits your description?
