"The most fruitful breaks are often those we are or were forced to take by life"

Ideas

1

We have to remember that burnout works on a spectrum, as opposed to a binary outcome.
Often one of the biggest misimpressions of burnout is that it's only caused by working hard.

Where in reality, a lot of other factors such as poor relationships, lack of fairness in work and in life as a whole that can lead to burnout.

He who has a why to live can bear almost any how. But he who has no why can't bear anything.
Boreout can happen when there's a lack of purpose and meaning behind the work you're doing.

But an overabundance of purpose can also drive too much self sacrifice, which leads to burnout.

Being stuck today doesn't mean being stuck forever.
Often we can find ourselves unable to get to where we want to, that we're stuck in our current position or situation in work or life.

In times like this, think about the steps that we can take from our position that are towards the direction of where we want to go, and we'll slowly find more opportunities that will eventually help lead us to where we want to be. Opening a few doors leads to the opening of more doors.
