A few years ago, I had a burn out
Not so much because I was working long hours
But more because I was doing a job I really did not like
I was always afraid to make mistakes,
To make the wrong decision which may cost a lot of money
After a few months/years, I had the impression my brain was not functioning properly
I was more & more tired, getting frequent headaches
I remember standing twice in front of my computer
Having a blackout: I could not remember what I was supposed to do next
The more stressed I was, the less I could sleep & the more tired I became
Because I could not sleep, I no longer went to dance, which was usually my stress relief
And because I was not releasing my stress,
I could no longer sleep properly to recharge my batteries
I was in a downwards spiral and did not seem to be able to get out of it ?
So I had to break the circle ?
I stopped working for 2 months
Tried to relax, sleep, exercise and go to dance again ??
Then I started to work part time, till I could work full time.
What this taught me is:
‼️ LISTEN TO YOUR BODY & THE SIGNS IT GIVES YOU
‼️ Do not wait till it’s too late
‼️ We only have ONE health
⭐️ OUR HEALTH IS OUR WEALTH ⭐️
