There have been times this week that I felt like I was all over the place. So many deadlines to keep up with, last minute changes, and tough decisions I had to make. I think I’m looking for the words; I’m slightly burned out. We all go through this stage. It’s not a phase. It’s just one of the many aspects of life, regardless of what you do for a living, that we have to deal with. But how do you cope with this situation? Even so, how do you get out?
Recently, I’ve been doing my best to take a moment. Take a moment to breathe. Go for a walk. And take myself away from whatever I’m doing that is only bringing me negativity. It’s hard, especially when you know you have to work, but I’ve learned that pushing through despite how stressed you feel, doesn’t bear positive results in the end.
With spring in the air, this helps dramatically with my mood, and I’m motivated to get out there. Not just cooped up in our living room. I guess one of the many perks of working from home, is that you can technically work anywhere, as long as there is WiFi.
I also find myself wanting to do something more creative than tapping the keys away. Like photography. Travel and explore nearby towns and food. Mind you, I’m a foodie, so the latter wasn’t a hard one to get really into.
Time is precious. Make every minute count. More on this chic timepiece from Grayton Watches soon!
I feel fortunate that my husband also loves the things I am passionate about. He’s started taking photos and sometimes when it’s his day off; we would drive somewhere and discover what nature has to offer.

The whole point of this post is simple. You have to make time for yourself every once in a while. Right now, I’m pushing the mundane things aside and instead, connect with you. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? For those who have been following this site from the start (remember those funny/smiley jelly beans as part of my header??), you know it’s been quite a journey. But here I am, still kicking and learning new things every single day.
How about you? How do you deal when you start feeling burned out?
