“We don’t have to do all of it alone.
We were never meant to.”
Are you feeling constantly overwhelmed and out of control at work? Do you dread waking up in the morning to another work day? Do you get the Sunday blues and feel down or depressed the night before the workweek starts? Maybe you are noticing yourself forgetting things and double booking yourself for appointments. You may be constantly procrastinating on projects and then feeling guilty and ashamed for letting things accumulate until the last minute. You may be avoiding certain people at work because the relationships are so tense and uncomfortable. You may be giving everything you have just to keep up with work and have very little left at the end of the day for your family, friends, and yourself.
If you are noticing these signs and symptoms, you may be experiencing unhealthy levels of job stress and symptoms of burnout.
