No. I’m not talking about the kind of burnout where you’re just tired from what you had to do today. I’m talking about real burnout.
I am trying to do more in the area of recreation. Look at that word – recreation. Let’s look at it differently re-creation. To be created anew. Merriam Webster defines it as “refreshment of strength and spirits after work ; also : a means of refreshment or diversion.” I am renewing old friendships and establishing new ones. I am trying to read more and watch more movies with less television. I am seeking out opportunities to do something different each week so that the activities will renew me, not add to the burnout.
I am tired…all the time.
I cannot change circumstances at work or at home to I’m trying to take care of the circumstances I can change. Anyone have any suggestions?
