Whether you felt it before a pandemic hit the world or not, chances are you’re feeling it now. Burnout. That always overwhelmed, on edge, fatigued, frustrated, spent, sometimes resentful place that perhaps started at work but now pervades every aspect of your life.
Job burnout can leave you feeling overworked, stressed, hostile, low in self-efficacy, and feeling pretty taken for granted.
Mom burnout can make you feel irritable, disconnected from your kids/family, and as if you’re “always behind” on something – laundry, dishes, homework help, you name it.
Suffering from mom burnout or job burnout can then bleed from one thing into the next. Tell me the last time you were actually able to leave work at work and home at home!
