#32 ND Burnout… are you in it?

As in my previous post (here) ND Burnout is when you get to the point where you are physically and mentally exhausted just doing the day-to-day things of your life. 

All ND burnout is characterised by both physical and mental exhaustion – that feeling of wading through mud and a head full of cotton wool, along with a reduced ability to cope with stress and life in general. 

But… if you have co-occurring conditions such as alexithymia (read more about that here) or low levels of interoception (covered as part of our 8 senses here) you could be in burnout but have difficulty picking it up. I’ll be delving deeper into what these are and how you can put in place strategies if they are hampering you in picking up signs you are in or heading towards ND burnout in future blog posts.

Some signs you are in or heading towards ND burnout that you can look out for can include:

  •        Needing to sleep more
  •        Finding it harder to think things through
  •        Finding it harder to understand what other people are saying
  •        Finding it harder to focus
  •        Wanting to spend more time alone
  •        More emotional dysregulation 
  •        Increased sensory sensitivity

For more information about signs of ND burnout, and for support in helping to pick up you are in or heading towards ND burnout, in the near future I’ll be launching an online survey you can take and receive a report on your ND burnout. If you’d like to know when this is launched be sure to head on over to the contact page and send me an email letting me know you’d like to be on the notification list, and not only will you be the first to hear about it, you’ll also get initial access at a reduced price.
