What it feels like to be on the brink of burnout

Do you ever find yourself googling for resources to help you manage your stress?

One of my clients was telling me that before we met she was searching around trying to figure out who could help her with her stress issues.

She knew she needed help. She felt like she was at the end of her rope and knew something had to give. She just couldn’t keep going trying to figure it all out on her own.

She was googling different therapists, wondering about coaches and searching for that right person who would be a good fit for her.

Have you ever found yourself in a similar place?

Maybe you've tried the DIY route - reading self-help books, downloading free tools and resources, watching videos and reading blogs and articles?

I know for many people it’s embarrassing, maybe shameful, to admit you need help with stress.

It’s hard to face the facts that you're not superwoman and that you can’t do it all by yourself.

You’re likely worried about what might happen if you keep going down the same path. If you don’t get help and get on top if it, what’s going to happen to your health, your relationships, your work?

Do you find yourself always on edge, screaming at the kids and not showing up as the person you truly want to be? Feeling like you go from one crisis to another? Always chasing that never-ending to-do list? Never having that downtime to focus on you and what's really important?

Are you worried that you can't keep up this pace and that one day you're not going to be able to get out of bed?

Believe me, I’ve been there. I call this being on the brink of burnout. You’re at that precipice, the tipping point and you find yourself saying, "I just can’t do this alone anymore."

I’ve been in this place three times in my life.

In today's video I share my personal story of what it felt like to be on the brink of burnout and what I did to move through those times. I also talk about the different types of professionals that can support you and discuss how coaching is different.

Check it out.

As an introvert it's hard for me to reach out and ask for help. It takes awhile before I'm ready to admit I can't do it all on my own. But I know then when I do, it feels soooo good to finally get that personal support, encouragement and accountability I need to move forward.

With this type of support, I’m able to focus, put a plan in place and take the small steps to work toward my vision.

But most importantly, I feel heard. I know I'm not alone. I'm reassured I'm not going crazy. This alone brings a huge sense of relief, hope and motivation.

To your well-being,
Michelle
