Because life gets tough sometimes.
There are times in all of our lives when we feel lost and down on ourselves.
Maybe it's a job you're completely sick of, or a relationship you know isn't going to work out. Maybe it's just your daily routine that has you feeling passionless and without a purpose. Or maybe it's actually a combination of all these things.

Be honest with yourself and know your limits, AKA. cancel those plans.
"One of the most important things I've learned is to be introspective and honest with myself about who I am and what I need. If you're feeling burnt out, be honest about it. If you need to cancel plans or have a night in, do it. If you need to put the dishes off until the next day, that's okay. I'm a stay-at-home mom to a wild 3 year old, which means burn out comes on fast. Learning to say when I'm feeling burnt out, or to let go of things that don't need to happen, became really important. Then I take time for me to do things that relax and/or fulfill me."

Schedule just 10 to 15 minutes of "personal development time" into your calendar.
"My goal is to never feel like a burnout is close. I've taken some practical steps at work to ensure I'm keeping a level head while I'm there. The thing that's helped me the most is scheduling 'personal development' time (I make it an appointment in my calendar), where I actually leave the building to go on a short walk to breathe in fresh air and listen to music or a podcast. It helps center me, and is especially beneficial on a particularly meeting- or stress-filled day. Take time for you!"
