Feeling torn between duties and desires….
Life, with all its’ demands and strains on your time, can leave you feeling like you are not meeting or fulfilling either your duties or desires in a way that you would like. Is time slipping away and leaving you feeling chaotic inside?Are you feeling like your time is spread too thinly and you are not being the full person you would like to be? Perhaps your not doing all the things you would like to do in the way you would like to do them? Are you torn between work obligations and personal desires? Are you finding your work demanding too much time leaving you with little to no energy or personal quality time?
If you identify with these issues, and you don’t like how it feels, then it is likely the case that your work/life balance is off and you need to reset it!
An imbalance in your work/life priorities can lead to burnout, which can leave you feeling: exhausted mentally, physically and emotionally; irritable; depressed; disillusioned, empty and low in motivation and drive. Burnout usually stems from constant feelings of stress, feeling undervalued and overworked, taking on too much to do, not saying "no" when you want to, and by not setting boundaries that you are comfortable with.
Often times, burnout is caused by too much pressure, real or imagined, and too little recreation. Recreation is pleasurable experiences where you can take a break and let your worries go. Recreation is much needed to rejuvenate yourself so that you can handle stresses and pressures in life. Life without "re-creation" is like living mechanically, leaving little or no room for fun, relaxation, exploration, reflection, creativity and personal growth.
There is no need to live mechanically or with little pleasure, and there is a way to bring your life into balance so that you can experience life more fully and with much more joy!
