Could parent burnout be happening to me?
Burnout is more than just being “tired”. It is a form extreme and total exhaustion that results from prolonged exposure to intense stress. Left unchecked, it can can do significant and lasting damage to our bodies, brains, relationships, and our ability to effectively parent our kids…or even function in all other areas of our life.
Burnout is also sneaky stuff! It builds slowly over time…and sometimes it happens so slowly we may not even realize how bad it really is. In fact, one of the top indicators of significant burnout is that you don’t even know it’s happened! Yet it still keeps quietly building until we either actively do something to combat and reverse it… or we reach a point where our bodies rebel, we hit a wall, and we’re forced to face reality.
