Feeling fried?

Are you feeling depleted? No energy? No excitement for much of anything? And not sure what to do next?

It could be that you're experiencing burnout. It seems that burnout is reaching near-epidemic proportions these days as people work extra hard to keep from falling through the cracks, to stay ahead of bills, to manage a heavier-than-usual workload given all the layoffs at many workplaces, to juggle all the demands of families and careers and more. Or even to plan for retirement—or manage it if you're already retired but are worried about the money holding out. It's exhausting to just think about it all.

Reach out for some help if that's where you find yourself. At the very least, talk it over with trusted and wise friends. Seek out a counselor with whom you can work. Or contact me if you would like to talk about this to see whether coaching might help you (I offer complimentary, no-obligation strategy sessions). I have worked with clients who were just fried and were confused about where to turn and what direction to go. It's not a fun place to be, but you can find your passion and energy again. I've seen it happen, and I'm always jazzed to be part of such a process. It's so heartening to see a client go from burnout to a place of joy and passion again.

Typically burnout doesn't go away by itself ... and there's nothing wrong with asking for help. Reach out today.
