6 Signs of Burnout

Written By Mitch Glaser

Burnout symptoms are our bodies and brains asking for a detox. We all know that too much of a good thing, can be a very bad thing.  Our work, no matter how meaningful and fulfilling it may be, unfortunately is no different!  I used to think of burnout as a state of being where I was working tirelessly at a job in which the fulfillment I received on the backend, didn’t match the effort I put forward on the front end.  I spent the first 7 years of my career working in finance where I was EXTREMELY burnt out – long days that often extended into the early hours of the morning, stressful short-term timelines, zero boundaries for my personal time and an inability to express myself creatively.  In order to prevent burnout, it’s important to understand the symptoms. This article highlights 6 key symptoms of burnout I've learned to recognize in myself.

 10 Limiting Beliefs I’ve Gotten Rid of to Change My Life For The Better

Written By Jenna Hushka

Limiting beliefs hold us back from being our best selves. It’s taken me years to realize, that myself, and myself alone is responsible for accelerating my life. Anything else is just an excuse. But— this is easier said than done.  If you’re like me, we form habits of feeding our brain thoughts that don’t benefit us.   It’s pretty easy to convince ourselves that we are not the problem. That it is 100% external factors that are locking us away from our true potential.  The problem is, if we continuously plant limiting beliefs in our head, they will prevail. They will compound and over time become your truth.  That’s why we must get rid of them. Here are 10 limiting beliefs I continue to rid myself of, in order to live my best life.

Read this if you’ve been hard on yourself for how you’re coping with COVID-19

Written By Leandra Lehmann

Coping with COVID-19 is a different journey for everyone. It's important to adjust your expectations to accommodate the unconscious ways in which this pandemic is impacting you. It's time to accept yourself for where you're at, and that where you're at can change week to week. Set small and achievable goals, and be learn to slow down and be more present with yourself.  Right now, many of us may be fortunate to work safely from our homes, have comforts like T.V. and entertainment apps, and a diversity of foods to cook. Despite these relative comforts of our immediate environment, we are still being bombarded by change, loss, paradoxes, conflicts and uncertainty in our society and world- thank you COVID-19. Pervasive uncertainties exist over the future, when school will get back in session, when work will resume, what restaurants and businesses will close in our communities, whether we or people we know get the virus or not, who might get laid off from their jobs. We’re also experiencing the inner emotional conflict caused by experiencing so many multiple paradoxes: Mother nature is healing, and yet human beings are sick. We finally have time to spend with our families, and yet we’re encountering greater relational friction. We may have cherished time to reflect on our goals and yet the future is up on the air. We may feel gratitude and joy for the sanctuaries of our homes, and sadness and guilt for all the essential workers risking their lives. We can feel joy and sadness, and many different emotions at the same time, but this may feel hard and new to us- with these emotions more saliently or strongly felt. We also may be grieving who we used to be and our lives before. We may be grieving the energy and goals we had and we feel confusion by the changes we’re noticing in ourselves. Normal expectations just cannot apply, and it is enough to be doing the best we can.  Here are 11 reminders to help you cope with self-compassion.

How to prioritize wellness while WFH during a pandemic

Written By Chel Camp

WFH wellness tips during the pandemic. Working at home has always been something that people wanted to happen more often, until now when staying home is the only option. During this pandemic, I originally found myself waking up in my pajamas, and having snacks at my disposal while working. It sounded like the perfect mixture of ingredients to work from home. However, as time went on, I felt extreme fatigue with no sort of work- life balance. Like many, my thoughts, and actions, were solely consumed with work. Don’t get me wrong, high work performance is incredibly important, but so is our health. There were times where I would look up at the clock and realize I had been working all day. Eventually, I knew that my personal journey from working at home had to transform into one with a beneficial balance and overall well-being.
