Getting Burnt Out

Hey Everybody! Hope you’re doing well and had a great Thanksgiving break.

What I want to focus on in this blog is getting burnt out and how to avoid it. As a college student, things can be a lot more difficult than in high school and it’s important for us to know that. The work is more demanding, being involved takes a lot of your time and you must be able to have a healthy balance of work, your academics and your social life. Experiencing a burn out happens when you are constantly focused on working on one or more things, that you get so tired and get sort of mentally or physically exhausted.

There are many times where I have been burnt out, but it’s important to know that if this occurs, you have to take some time for yourself and have a little fun. When I was younger, I never took naps. But now, I live for naps! Lol. College students are so involved in different aspects of life, that we need our rest. Over this Thanksgiving break, my family and I went to Orlando, FL and stayed in a vacation home for a week. I really needed this because I so tired and stressed out from school and needed to take a break.

However, it is o.k. to be stressed out sometimes, as long as it is from something that you love. I love school, working and being involved in different campus organizations and activities. It keeps me busy and there are times that I stress over all that I have to do. But if I take breaks, it really isn’t that bad. Also, after you’ve become rejuvenated, you feel like you can face the rest of the school year. I’m grateful for everything that I can do, but I’m also happy that I can take breaks and have time for myself when it’s necessary.

So, it is important to keep busy and stay working. But you should also realize when you do need a break to keep a healthy balance in your life. Take time for yourself, hang out with friends and have fun.
