Burnout and Stress – alleviation can’t be outsourced

Burnout and stress are highly prevalent around Christmas and New Year.? Over committing to events and others’ expectations means little time for reflection and relaxation.? It is tempting to see solutions outside of yourself, seeking the approval or validation of others for continuing the fast pace.

If you find yourself overwhelmed by commitments and the pressure of others to socialise and party at this time of year, stop and ask yourself? ‘What do i really want to do here? What would really happen if I said ‘no’ occasionally to other people’s demands?‘? You can outsource solutions to your problems by seeking approval or social consensus.? You alone are responsible for your life and what you create.
