Evening all ❤️
Weekends go so fast to bloody fast.
Well what a end to a vile few days it’s been.
I’ve been so poorly I’m actually discusted in myself for abusing my body for so long.
Just need to pre warn you this post will be over 🔞 only….
I would like to think be being my authentic self makes people relate and understand me a bit more.
My blog is real life and in real life I do like to express myself freely even using swear words from time to time.
So if you don’t like swearing please don’t read past this point I wouldn’t want to offend anyone.
Over the last few months I’ve really tried my hardest to get on with life like most people do from day to day.
But by over projecting myself in to certain parts of my life I’ve actually done more damage to myself than good.
I’ve overworked and overwhelmed my body as a part of my coping mechanism.
I didn’t actually think the term burnt out was an actual psychical and psychological medical term for overdoing things.
But it really is an actual problem.
You just keep going keep fighting just to get through another day.
Then your body just says no now that’s enough slow down time out.
For me it’s not the task in hand that I can’t cope with it’s not my job either or my kids it’s just everything.
And sometimes you just end up exploding like a mint in a coke bottle.
With no warning it just happens life gets to much.
It may seem like I moan alot about life…
But I am healthy 🤔 sort off…
I am warm and I have a roof over my head.
I’ve got two amazing, kind and bright children also in good health.
What can I possibly moan about.
How can I possibly keep burning myself out trying to over project in certain areas of my life.
Well it’s just me I try to do too much and the issue is that I do actually care alot about people and situations that probably don’t feel the same in return.
I also try and cover up my own issues by throwing myself into something else that’s where I become even more overwhelmed.
What is burnout?
It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands. As the stress continues, you begin to lose the interest and motivation that led you to take on a certain role in the first place.
Burnout can also cause long-term changes to your body that make you vulnerable to illnesses like colds and flu. Because of its many consequences, it’s important to deal with burnout right away.
Physical signs and symptoms of burnout
Feeling tired and drained most of the time
Lowered immunity, frequent illnesses
Frequent headaches or muscle pain
Change in appetite or sleep habits.
Emotional signs and symptoms of burnout.
Sense of failure and self-doubt
Feeling helpless, trapped, and defeated
Detachment, feeling alone in the world
Loss of motivation.
Increasingly cynical and negative outlook
Decreased satisfaction and sense of accomplishment.

10 ways to prevent a burn out
1. Figure out which kind of burnout you have
2. Cut down and start saying “no.”
3. Give up on getting motivated
4. Treat the disease, not the symptoms.
5. Make downtime a daily ritual.
6. Stop being a perfectionist; start satisficing.
7. Track your progress every day.
8. Change location often.
9. Don’t overload what downtime you do get.
10. Break projects into bite-sized pieces.
It’s actually horrific to think that our own mental wellbeing fights against our bodies until our bodies say..
And there isn’t anything we can do but listen and take time out for our bodies to heal and our souls to rest.
It’s absolutely bloody important that we listen to ourselves and our bodies you keep pushing you will end up in the stages of a burn out its not nice place to be in lock down for few days maybe weeks not quite feeling yourself isn’t nice you feel lost and hopeless.
My biggest problem is I need to learn to say NO or….
I’m far to understanding to situations and people who only have one goal with you is to use you for what they need then that’s that.
Being kind hearted and trying to see the best in people doesn’t always work in your favour unfortunately you have to learn the hard way.
I’m currently re evaluating my life at the moment and all aspects of it.
Sometimes we have to make choices however hard they maybe.
I’m not on this earth to be loved by everyone nor to be liked.
I’m here to be myself, to be happy and to look after myself and my family.
From now on I put myself and my family and my few close friends first.
Anything else just doesn’t matter its really not worth making yourself ill over it.
Love to you all 😊 xxx
