Hi everyone! Sorry that I have been so quiet on here for the past couple of weeks. I have been trying to juggle university assignments with work so I have been unable to get some time together to write a blog post.
I thought this week that I would update you on what has been going on for me in the past couple of weeks.
I’m just not feeling myself
It’s been a hard couple of weeks for me. I have had an intense workload and had to deal with some awkward and rude people. It’s taken a toll on my emotional health. I am stressed with all my uni assignments and unsure on how to build up motivation, as well as feeling anxious. The hard thing is is that I have two more assignments to go with deadlines in two weeks time.
Am I suffering from burnout?
Now this is the question I keep asking myself. My friend said to me a week ago ‘I think you are starting to become burnt out Megan’. Now at the time, I didn’t even know what burnt out meant. I now know that burnout is:
When I start to think about it, I have had prolonged university stress over my assignments. I feel exhausted and struggle to stay motivated with my work. So I would say that I am burnt out and that is probably why I am struggling at the minute.
What am I doing to help myself?
Well, I have taken a break off all social medias, except my work accounts. I have also made sure to pace myself when it comes to my final two assignments and allow myself to take breaks when I need it. I am just hoping that I can build my motivation to finish my final assignments to the best of my ability. I’m sure I will though!
Have you suffered from burn out? If you have, I would love to hear from you! You can find all my contact details here.
