I can’t keep going on like this, my work life balance is off and I need to take time off from work. Even though it’s just a week, it’s been hard for me to actually take the time off. As a content creator, I feel so much pressure to keep making content everywhere. And with all of the platforms, podcasting, social media, publishing, it feels like I need to be everywhere. I’ve needed this break for a while and I hope you can understand. With that said, I will not be publishing content next week. And when I come back, my goal is to hold myself accountable so I don’t get to this kind of place again. And I want you to hold me accountable too. Hopefully by sharing my story and why I need to take time away (fully off of social media) to recharge and restore, will inspire some of you who may be in a similar situation, to do the same. If you’re feeling burnout or burnt out with your work or job, and feel like your work exhaustion is too much, this may be something to consider. We’ve been through a lot these last 2-3 years and burnout is a real thing that we struggle with. It’s important to take care of your needs and remember that everything is going to be okay if you take time away to take time for your own personal health. Sending you all so much love. See you in a couple weeks.
Every Tuesday & Friday I post a journal prompt to help keep you motivated and working on yourself. Whether you add the prompts to your own journal at home or use the comment section under the prompt itself, this can be a great way to keep on track with journaling.
