Hi hi hi!
I wasn’t planning on posting this, but I have been having a tough couple of days mentally so I thought this would be a good way to just get everything out of my mind and kind of lay it out so I can see the bigger picture.
I’m sure you have dealt with the sensation of being burnt out – like you just can’t keep going both mentally and physically. This week just felt like it took every ounce of my strength to make it to Friday. Honestly, I don’t know if it’s because I had just over-extended myself throughout the week or what. Below is a picture of my planner with all the goals and things that I wanted to get done and surprisingly, I was able to accomplish most, if not, all the goals that I had set.
However, I spent a lot of time making sure posts went up, but also having Instagram posts to correspond with the blog posts. I also have been trying to fix my sleeping schedule since it got extremely messed up on Tuesday since I thought it would be a great idea to go to the gym at 4:00AM.
As I type this, it is Monday and I am just feeling like complete poop. I’m feeling discouraged, tired, and uninspired. Recently, I have been trying to tap into more creative things/hobbies because I thought that it would help me everything and allow my mind to not focus on the negatives and though it works, I’m brought back to reality just as fast as I left it. I think what I really need is a mental day. A day to take care of my mental health and really just take care of myself as a whole. It has gotten so bad that I had a mini mental breakdown on Sunday where I just didn’t want to deal with life.
Do you find yourself going through these “burnt out” phases? If so, what do you do? How do you keep yourself motivated when you need to keep going? Right now I’m just struggling and having a tough time finding that spark/fire.
