What Burnout Feels Like
Today, I came across this relatable graphic. Early on in university, I’d burn out multiple times a semester. It felt as if there was too much work and not enough time to complete it. Thus, I’d be studying all the time and in the rare times when I “rested” I was anxious and thinking about work.
Over time I learned to adjust my strategy and techniques, mainly entering a state of deep work and deep play.
