I find it amazing when I speak with people who are in burn out denial. These are often women who are trying to rule the world without taking a moment to be still. I’m of the belief that knowing where you stand within your environment is truly the best way to become self-aware, perhaps that is the Gestalt therapist in me coming out.
Anyway, these women (some men, too) are working 8-12 hours a day, taking care of kids and pets, cooking or picking up dinner, dealing with ordinary stress, dealing with in-law stress…… it goes on and on and on. Where is the time to even become self-aware? And yet, if you were to ask, they have convinced themselves that all is OK and they are not burnt out.
As a result, I’ve created 5 questions to ask yourself right now as a way to discover if you’re truly burnt out. If you answer ‘Yes’ to 3 or more…. you are! I’ve created a FREE 7-day audio program specifically to introduce people to the concept of not only burning the candle at both ends, but how to truly regain control of stress.

Questions to ask yourself:
1. Is everyday a bad day?
2. Does the subject of “extra time” to simply sit on the couch seem foreign or ridden with guilt?
3. Are you exhausted no matter what you do?
4. Is the majority of your day is spent on tasks you find either mind-numbingly dull or overwhelming?
5. Do you often feel like nothing you do makes a difference or is appreciated?
I offer personalized help, even over Skype. So, if you feel like you need or want more than the free 7-day program, contact me. I have an array of services at different price levels available. Yes, all sessions are HIPAA compliant.
