Calling All Exhausted Adults: I Want To Hear Your Tips And Tricks For Combating Burnout

All work and no play...I'm too tired to finish this sentence.

I'm going to say something really brave that nobody else has had the guts to say before: Being an adult is hard.

Between the ever-growing responsibilities at our jobs...

Our beloved family members needing something from us at all times...

The constant barrage of household duties...

...And not to mention the current state of the world at large.

It's easier than ever for us to feel BURNT. THE. F. OUT.

So (and I'm sorry to ask one more thing of you), I need you to tell me the ways you combat burnout. How are you keeping yourself afloat in these wild times?

Maybe it's carving out time to actually read that book you've had on your nightstand for the last eight months?

Or, blocking off your calendar to spend some meaningful time "unplugged?"

It could even be as simple as getting outside for a brisk walk and a breath o' fresh after a long day hunched over your computer.

Whatever it is, I (and other exhausted adults) want to hear about it! Tell me what you do to combat burnout and how/why it helps in the comments below, or if you'd rather keep your answer anonymous, you can submit your suggestion via this Google form.
