It's hard to believe that there may come a time when you feel uninspired, frustrated and exhausted doing what you now love.
Following on from a heartfelt post from my amazing colleague and friend @susieyogi on how to deal with burnout. I wanted to add what factors lead to burnout.⠀ It's hardly ever as simple as that you are just working too many hours.⠀ .⠀ There are plenty of issues that contribute. Here are some I can certainly recognise, and having discussed this with peers they agree. --------------------⠀ ❎ Working early and late. A 7am class and a 8pm class in the same day is a recipe for fatigue. ⠀ .⠀ ❎ Having several commutes each day, is draining and stressful.⠀ .⠀ ❎ Having badly spaced out classes. Too much time where you have to hang around in a cafe, or too little time, where you are always playing catch up.⠀ .⠀ ❎ Erratic mealtimes and food choices. You have to have a least one warm meal a day where you can sit and enjoy for a long time. Not rushing to the next thing.⠀ .⠀ ❎ Skipping practice, and/or not attending classes or workshops. It can't be all output, there has to be some input for brain and body.⠀ .⠀ ❎ Always teaching the same thing. Same style, same practice, same discipline is wearing. Mix it up.⠀ .⠀ ❎ Feeling devalued, either financially or emotionally. ⠀ .⠀ ❎ Not maintaining regular meetings with colleagues and friend, to let off steam.⠀ .⠀ ❎ Not prioritising time off, weekly and monthly.⠀ #burnout #yogateacher #yogaselfcare #yogaaudit #loveyoga #takecareofyou #toomuch #givingnotgetting #learntothrive #lovetoteach #takestock #pilatesteacher #lovetoteach
