10/1/2018

One practice that has helped me tremendously is deep breathing. Anytime I feel anxious or overwhelmed, I...

Burnout is a common consequence of chronic stress. We experience burnout when we over exhaust our mind and body. Common symptoms of burnout are intense lack of motivation, negativity, and detachment.

However, in order to do so, I was working like a dog and racing like a horse in order to turn my dream into a reality.
