What is Burned out ?

 

Being burne out means feeling empty and mentally exhausted, devoid of motivation, and beyond caring. People experiencing burnout often don’t see any hope of positive change in their situations.

My Story

 

As some of you might be aware I’ve struggled with mental health & depression for years on and off, part of it was down to my brain injury I had 22 years ago.

And last 9 years losing my Mother & Father which destroyed us and myself, which is still hard to this day.

 

The side effects have been bloody trebblie at times and really send me over the edge with mood swings, snapping at loved ones which were the hardest. ……can you relate to any of this? Leave comments if you do.

 

It took me a long while to understand what was happening and expect it and get help.

I go more into my story, what happened and how to overcoming mental burn, depression in my forcoming product because I really don’t want you to have these periods in your life, because they can really drag you down.

 My big give away that can help you is this:

Stop Doing This

“One of the most common and destructive daily habit is to constantly compare your life and yourself to other people and their lives.”

And Do This

Instead of comparing yourself to other people create the habit of comparing yourself to yourself and see if you become a better person than day before , week before  and so on.

This simple tweak will help you so much and your though patten will start changing .
