Burnout often is a sign that you’re feeling unfulfilled by your current life circumstances. It also can indicate that you previously held expectations that haven’t been met, so it may be time to readjust your expectations so that they are more achievable.
Do what you can to create time in your life for quiet reflection, such as through meditation, prayer, or journaling. This time can help you evaluate what you may want to add (e.g., a new work opportunity or more time for friendships) to your life that is missing currently, or perhaps other things you want to cut out from your life (e.g., expectations about keeping a super-clean house) to help you make the most of your current life circumstances and find as much fulfillment in them as you can.
