Q&A

Q: “I feel like the holiday break somehow left me more burned out. Am I the only one?” – S. Murphy (Memphis, TN)

 

JJ Singh, Founder & CEO: Unfortunately, you’re definitely not alone in this feeling and it’s something I’m hearing from a lot of people.

 

I’m not a doctor and so I always advise anyone feeling burnt out to seek the help they need, whether from friends, family or professionals. It’s never a bad idea to ask for help.

 

We’re really used to the holiday break providing a change from our everyday – vacation, more time at home, a chance to be somewhere other than the office, etc. But this year – like last – we find many of us taking a vacation in homes that have become our offices too. There’s less distinction between our “work life” and “personal life”, so we’ve lost the week or two where it felt like we got away from the regular grind.

 

That means we started the new year feeling like we’d “done nothing” – even if celebration and relaxation were involved in that break – because the scenery didn’t change. Then we hear about things like Omicron, the political landscape is more charged than ever and we’re expected to be rested for a new year on what can feel like the hamster wheel of life.

 

The advice I give to my sons is the same advice I’d give to you – make sure you make time for yourself because you’re never going to “find” it. For my children that’s often a big workout session in the morning and for me it might be watching a movie with my wife. But you need to find that reward for yourself each day so that you have some break from the sameness of the last few years.
