Managing our homes, families, careers and finances during unprecedented times while adhering to the Safer at Home order can take a toll over time. When each passing day, starts to run together with another and you can’t remember if it’s a weekday or weekend, our patience runs thinner. Burnout can manifest in many ways whether it’s from volunteering, being a caregiver, overburdening our need to multi-task or from Zoom exhaustion.
Embracing this change to our routines may require more self-care and being intentional in what we do.
Be authentic and true to yourself. If you need help or someone to talk to, reach out to a trusted friend or call a national hotline or local counselor. Many mental health specialists offer telehealth support.
