Burn Out

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired.

There seems to be so much going on recently that I feel like I can’t catch up.

Work is going a mile a minute, which is good and bad at the same time. Good because there’s always something to do. Bad because there’s always something to do. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed, which makes me get in my head, which makes the overwhelmed feeling worse, which makes my head worse…it’s a terrible cycle.

Noah is getting so big! It makes me happy and sad at the same time. I love that he’s growing up and learning new things, but at the same time I miss my little boy.

I feel like my cup is very empty. I’m neglecting myself. I’m not caring for myself. It’s hard to justify by myself time when I have so many other things to do.

Any suggestions on how to not get burned out? Or how not to feel guilty about self care?

    I would love to give you a cure-all answer to this but I’m afraid there isn’t one. From personal experience kids change your life completely and it’s not always in the way that you want. One suggestion that may help you is to have certain routines that you stick to no matter what – and getting little one-s bedtime routine set is essential, although nowhere near as easy as a lot of people (including parents) will tell you it is. Every child is different, not everything works the same for each person. But trying to keep a routine going through the tough times will reap rewards in the en/d.

    Also personally I find to-to lists incredibly useful, can’t seem to get anything done without them. To me though when your kids are very young it feels pointless having too many deadlines, just keep working on goals until you can reach them (and make your goals smaller if you just don’t seem to be making any headway whatsoever!).

    Hope this is of some help?!
