Burnout

First For Women - - Insight -

Ev­ery year, all the hol­i­day prep falls to you, and in the midst of cook­ing, clean­ing and shop­ping, you’re too drained to get in the spirit. “For me, I want to make din­ner, I want to get the per­fect gifts, so it’s not just say­ing no to other peo­ple, it’s say­ing no to my­self,” ad­mits Burn. “You get a ‘giver’s high’ from mak­ing peo­ple happy, but if you push for too long try­ing to meet these stan­dards, you be­come emo­tion­ally and phys­i­cally ex­hausted.”
