Raw: Burned Out

I am. Seems like there’s no ending to this. Sometimes I wanna quit. Then I will be reminded that I should be grateful. Then I will be grateful, sincerely.

My body yells and begs for rest. Quality rest. My mind asks if he can slow down. Nah… There’s a lot on my plate. Being slow won’t help. Done with one, add two on the list. Never ending.

Ordered shoes and bags in Lazada. Three dresses from Shopee on the way. Caffeine everyday. I crave for DQ. I need massage, again. I need facial, again. Stressful.

But really, helping people and making their lives easier, somehow, makes sense. Thank you for all theΒ thank you‘s. Thank you for all the appreciation. It motivates, somehow.

Not whining; just expressing.
Not a rant, but a confession.
Not to give up, but to push forward.
Besides, I am a warrior.

Lord, restore my soul.

“Age wrinkles the body.
Quitting wrinkles the soul.”

How about you? How do you cope up with stress? Any suggestion on how can I reward myself?

  2. Meron akong 3 steps na isi-share sayo para malabanan yang pagka burn out. Yung una ay ang madalas ko talagang ginagawa noon pa, at yung next 2 ay nabasa ko lang recently.

    #1 syempre ay yung mga “Travels” ko. Dati kase monthly may byahe ako, either sa beach yan, bundok, out of town, or kahit museum, basta anything na aalis ako at lalayo. Iba kase kapag you have something to look forward to.

    #2 may tinatawag silang “Switch Brain Modes”. Kapag burn-out ka na, kumbaga sa CP parang pa-lowbat ka na din. So para mas mabilis ang pag-recharge ng CP, dapat naka-off diba? So dapat daw i-switch off mo din ang utak mo by not making any decision or thinking. Just allow your mind to enjoy things around you. Pwede daw yung 5-10 minute walk sa labas ng work place mo. Pahangin muna sa labas kumbaga, para makahinga-hinga ka. Or watch ka ng inpirational videos sa Youtube, or pwede rin isang episode ng favorite mong k-drama.

    #3 syempre through “Eating”. Suggest nila dapat daw yung mga low-glycemic foods. Eto daw yung mga foods that are longer to digest, but fueled your brain overtime. Pero dahil masyadong teknikal na yung tunog, basta kain ka na lang ng anything na nagpapasaya sayo, like DQ, etc..

    Sensya na medyo napahaba yata. Hahaha.. Basta yan, gawin mo yan. HTH..

    1. Ayos, pwede nang isang blog to ah. Mas mahaba pa yata sa blog post na kinocommentan. Hahahaha.

      Totoo yung travel plans para merong something to look forward to. Napaka-effective na motivation yan. Tested and proven.

      Sige ma-try yang shutting down. Actually sometimes nagkakayayaan kaming mag-walk sa loob ng compound kahit kukuha lang ng meds ganyan, just for the sake na makatayo sa upuan. Pero may mga times talaga na ultimo pagkuha ng tubig at pag-ihi eh ang hirap isingit. Kaiyak.

      Food is lifeu nga. Nag ice cream nanaman ako kahapon at nagcoffee bean nung gabi. Maigi at hindi sumusumpong ang gastro lately.

      HTH???

    2. Oo nga noh? Pwede na ito maging blog post. Ma-copy nga, tapos i-publish ko. πŸ˜„

      Tama, ganun ang gawin mo. Lakad-lakad ka lang kahit sa loob ng compound. May malapit bang DQ sa office nyo?

      HTH = hope that helps πŸ˜‰

  3. pero hindi ka nagpafacial, nagpata*** ka πŸ™‚
    kapag burn out ako lumalayo ako sa mga tao sa paligid ko, kumakausap ng bagong tao, o di kaya kumukutingting ng kung ano ano sa bahay (gaya ng paggugupit ng mga papel, pagguhit, pagtingin sa mga lumang larawan), o kadalasan kumain mag-isa.

    try mo maghanap ng bagong hobby, nasubukan mo na Taekwando? or dance Yoga?

    1. Nagpatabas ng kili-kili? Hahaha.

      Planning to go back sa pagdodrawing. Pero lately more on coloring book pa lang ako.

      Yes, planning to withdraw again from social media. Masarap namnamin ang katahimikan. For hobby naman eto at nag-umpisa na ako ulit mag-aral maggitara. Haven’t tried taekwondo nor dance yoga. Pero magandang ideya yan. Para maging flexible naman ako. 2-weeks na nga akong hindi nakakapunta sa gym sa sobrang kabusyhan sa work. Hehehe. Tapos ayun, aakyat daw ng bundok. Another first for me. 😊

    1. I totally agree! At least on my own experience ha, pag deprived ako sa tulog, ang hirap magprocess ng mga bagay-bagay buong araw. Lutang and bangag, literal. Kaya nag-eend up ako sa pakiramdam na pagud na pagod, etc.

      Btw, maganda yung sinabi mo ah, “When your soul is lost and your mind is tired on finding it’s way back, just sleep.” I’ll take note of this. I will treat my mind and my body better by maintaining a proper sleep – with the help of God. Haha. Ang hirap kasi talaga.

    3. Mabilis akong makatulog, actually. It’s just that may mga panahong hindi ako pwedeng matulog ng maaga sa dami ng mga kailangang tapusin. Worst, minsan pati weekends working. Pero, this, too, shall pass, ika nga. Ang tagal lang kasi. Haha.

      Well siguro it’s because I was introduced to literature at a very early age.. So mas maaga akong nainlove sa literary pierces, na naginspired s akin to write.. Kaya na ayun… Sobrang trying hard lang ako ate kaya ganyan.. HahaπŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

  5. Hai po! Ako po I delete social media apps pag stress. Tapos nagpapaka anti-social ganern. Haha. Minsan kasi talaga medyo kelangan ng sistema ko ng solitude. I also take walks. Yung normally sasakay pa ako to get somewhere, nilalakad ko nalang minsan.

    Pero effective po saken yung pagsusulat ng unfiltered thoughts on a piece of paper tapos tapon ko after. Mailabas lang. Tsaka art. Nagkakataon nga lang na kakambal ng pagka stress ko ang creative block so hirap din ako mag-art minsan. Telltale sign na stressed ako pag itching na ako to make art pero hindi ako makagawa. So I set challenges nalang din na dapat makapagdrawing ako today ng kahit ano. I try to be productive pa din kahit feel na feel ko humilata. 😊😊😊

    Ay. Hello po ulit! Haha!

    1. Hello krishel! Tama ang social media fasting. Nakakadagdag stress din kasi. Same tayo, I have this what I call “Walk & Pray” para sa katahimikan ng mind ko. As in tinatapon mo yung mga unfiltered thoughts? Sayang naman! Next time sulat mo sa notebook. Masaya yun balikan in time. πŸ™‚

  6. Hello! Enjoying the little things in everyday life makes moments intense and joyful. And rewarding. Big things deliver after a couple decades.
    Feeling clothes temperature, spraying soft perfume on your hands in the evening just to sniff it yourself, telling someone a nice compliment, thinking ” I’m alive!” First thing in the morning, writing down a pleasant dream and keeping the notebook, remembering funny stories about a dead loved one with folks, it all adds up and make you connect to the Miracle of Life.
