Burned Out? How did I get here and what do I do?

anxiety burnout stress Feb 21, 2022

I see people all the time who are fried and burned out. I have known for a long time that this is not the way life is supposed to be.

The systems in our culture are creating burnout. Our lives are busy busy busy and schools and the workplace are a primary focus for most people to the point that people forget their emotional and physical well-being. While I encourage a good work ethic, I don’t encourage that your whole life is submerged in work.

Our systems want you to work and make the company money. I have done a lot of consulting in businesses because of burnout, sick leave, stress, and anxiety issues.

But at the core of it, the majority of businesses are about growing the business not about you or your health. They are advocating for themselves and occasionally you.

If these systems had your best interest at heart, wellness programs would be set up, sick leave, grief leave, real pregnancy leave, an attuning that we are human beings and our lives matter would be the heart of the system.

Food has become fast, massive medications are there to sleep, coffee drinks and caffeinated “energy” drinks are practically injected into our veins to keep us going.

Do you see anything wrong with this picture? We are frying out our bodies to the point of burnout. This is not the way life is supposed to be. Our bodies need loving care.

Tune into your breath to see if you are holding it, is it shallow, can you feel it, does your rib cage move, are you relaxed with an easy full breath to your core, or is it towards your nose and just a little wisp come out? Your breath is the number one indicator that you are relaxed or stressed out.
