Is it hard for you to relax when you are home or go on vacation because you are worrying about something you need to do on your list, for work, school, your family, your partner, everyone and everything else? Are you always “doing” and struggle to just “be”? Has your social life disappeared because you are always busy?
Work-life or school-life balance can be difficult to achieve while trying to incorporate self-care, a social life, and relationships. It’s harder when you work long hours, have tight deadlines, or are under pressure to be productive.
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.” – Helpguide.org

— JACK KORNFIELD
