We're All Feeling The Burn - OUT
Everyone is feeling it. COVID, homeschooling, being in your house 24-7, working 24-7, it's too much and enough is enough. A recent Gallup Poll says, fully remote workers are now experiencing more burnout than onsite workers. Employees who experience high levels of burnout are 63% more likely to take a sick day, 13% less confident in their performance and 23% more likely to visit the emergency room. That is just crazy.
Look around and see what's causing the true stress in your life. Break it down. See what pieces you can take out of your life for good, or trade around. It doesn't have to be this way, and one cannot be in groundhog's day forever. My grandpa used to say, "If you feel stuck, you are the one that hammered in the nail." Allow yourself room to get unstuck.
As for what's in the box this week,
