There are so many competing priorities in life that it is sometimes difficult to know where we want to spend our time. You don't fall into this category. You love spending time with your family and you want to keep it this way.
Here are some tools and tips to keep it that way without losing focus or burning out!
Just because you are doing what you love doesn’t mean that you won’t burnout. In fact, it’s easier to push yourself to the limit when you are doing something you love. Make sure that you aren’t letting burnout sneak up on you by ignoring symptoms like repeating colds or general fatigue. When you feel your body signaling that you need a break, make sure you take it! Whatever a relaxing break looks like to you, reading a book, a 15-minute coffee break, attending a yoga class on Thursday, make sure you take it!
Knowing when to say no is a huge sanity saver! Most of us say yes, even when we mean no. This is a problem. And also how we get roped into all those things that we really don’t want to do. Get comfortable with saying no! Now that you know where your priorities lie if you are presented with an opportunity that doesn’t align with them, kindly but firmly say no!
