It's been a rough few weeks around the world, friends. 😓 I hope you're all taking care of yourselves. As Community Folks reminded us this week, burnout (whether from work, personal life, or other issues entirely) is real, and taking a break from the cause is the only way to recover (though I acknowledge is definitely a privilege to step away from current events, however momentarily).
I learned from a psychiatrist a few weeks ago that burnout can cause PTSD, which means even if you're fully recovered from a burnout episode,which can take years, it can rear its ugly head at a moment's notice when patterns seem to be repeating themselves.
All that to say, if you find yourself struggling, take a step back. Find things that give you a positive net energy rather than taking even more energy away. And managers - do what you can to protect your team (and yourself!) from burnout as well.
