The experience of exhaustion has become increasingly more prevalent in general news. Complicated questions, long days, and increased screen time all contribute to stress and burnout.
Without adequate self care routines, our personal health can deteriorate resulting in frayed commitment to our long term goals. Perhaps on some days, we feel more committed to adaptive coping. Other days might be more challenging, leaving us tempted to turn to maladaptive coping. While some of our dangerous ways of coping might feel gratifying in the moment, we also know that those strategies may be dangers and unhelpful in the long term. What can we do to be helpful? Besides our proper diet, exercise and sleep, one tool that we can return to is Mindfulness.
