tired all the time? rest

our world is engineered to keep us engaged as much as possible. our phones, jobs, and friends demand our attention at a relentless pace, and burnout is prevalent. i often find myself exhausted, but still trying to be productive and outgoing even when i am at wit’s end. as a good friend once told me, “you can’t pour from an empty cup.”

my newsfeed is full of content that encourages me to take care of myself (@tinycarebot and @gumroad on twitter are some of my favorite online cheerleaders). even though i am reminded everywhere that “self care” is important, i still have trouble implementing it sometime. the simple answer? slow your roll. take a breather. don’t overthink it, and recline on the couch for awhile. the internet will be there when you come back refreshed and ready work.
