•A person who compulsively works excessively hard and long hours
Today, I’m back from a short, but much-needed break from blogging.
After working on and running this blog for four months, I severely burned out, big time.
I’ve never been a workaholic before, or even remotely acted like one, but since I started my blogging journey, I was adamant about working towards being a freelancer.
That was the start of this workaholic mentality.
I got this mindset where if I weren’t fully focusing my time and energy onto the blog – even if I was sat there, unknowing of what to do next – I was completely wasting time, being lazy, and not making progress.
I would rather sit and claim to be working instead of taking that time to reflect and see what I could do next, figure things out the healthy way. It came to the point I was blocking myself from new ideas because I was too busy beating myself up for not doing any work.
Taking the time off of the blog and social media – at least posting-wise – I watched some films and caught up on some shows. Just finding other things to do and being able to enjoy myself helped me so damn much.
Take care of yourself.
Don’t force yourself to work and make yourself feel bad for burning out.
Remender breaks are good, not being lazy.
Until next time,
