What does burn out look like?


Frustration


You struggle to finish task and as you do them you're plagued by feelings of negativity. Thoughts of why are you doing this and how you would rather be doing anything else bounce around your mind and settle.


Anger


Similar to when you need a lifestyle change, you lash out at the people around you when they ask for your assistance.


Sadness


Sighs of hopelessness escape you as you have trouble envisioning an achievable, different set of circumstances.


Isolation


You don't enjoy hanging out with friends as much as you once did. Possibly shutting yourself off to your loved ones and friends because you think that no one understands you


Prone to emotional outburst


The littelest things set you off and you have trouble regulating your emotions. After feeling angry, guilt or even shame may come because of how you initially reacted. What you may have viewed as minor is now enough to make you cry, or want to shut down for the day.


Fatigue


Being tired both mentally and physically are huge signals that something has to change.


Hitting 8 hours of sleep and still feeling groggy is a sign that your body is trying to tell you something. Obstacles are no longer a small stepping stone and you eventually begin to wonder why life is treating you in such a way


You question your life decisions
