Get It Together : 3 little things that is easily causing you to BURN OUT!!!

Whether you're working double jobs, working a full time job and side hustling, single parent hustling, or just the kind that likes to spend a ton of time working.. there are ways to go around it without BURNING OUT.

Here's 3 little things to watch for that can easily cause you to BURN OUT!!! 

1. NOT HAVING A LIMIT. 

We like the hustle - believe it or not, for whatever reason, some people really enjoy it. But as much as we'd like to put in as much hours in a day as we can - our bodies are not machines (and even machines break down). I'm not against it, by all means, hustle. Do what you love, do what you should for your families. 

But give yourself a LIMIT. 

It can be anything from the hours of work/ amount of energy you can put in - within a day, a week or a month. It also depends on the 'type' of work that you do. Say, I know I'm okay with putting in 12+ hours of computer work in a day - but I also know that I would totally die working the same amount of time working on a job that requires me to run around and a lot of my energy. And if you're doing a little bit of both, find your happy balance. 

Kinda like playing the lottery - Know your Limit, Stay within it. 


2. NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP. 

SLEEP? What SLEEP?!
- Yea, I thought so too. Until I crashed so many times in the middle of the day - surrounded with little ninjas jumping around and all over me, and I would not feel a thing. zero. passed out. 

Sleep is important. 
A full 8 hour sleep can make such a difference to your day and week. And if you're still making your way to hitting that number, naps are fun too! 

Your Body will Thank You, and Reward you with the energy you need to Hustle through another day. Now, unplug that TV and get to BED! 


3. NOT ALLOCATING SOME 'ME' TIME THROUGHOUT YOUR DAY. 

Who's got time for that? You do!

You will MAKE TIME for it!

I have never really been that 'Morning Person' but I can tell you how AMAZING it is to start your day with a good coffee, a 5 minute read (nope, we're not talking facebook. grab a real book.), breathing in that morning breeze and taking in all the peace and quiet before all the chaos begins.


Some would wake up the extra hour to go for a morning run/workout before work - I've done this one summer, it's amazing how much energy it can give you to get your day started. 

AT LEAST 30 minutes a day - to yourself - to clear your head - to breathe, can make all the difference.

When I manage to dodge any of these three bullets, I find that my days are better, I am better and I have helped keep the world a safer place. 




Happy Hustling!
