Every so often I highlight a post on burnout, taking care of yourself, or work/life balance. We all know it's important but it's easy to feel overwhelmed with deadlines or the other stresses of life and forget to take care of ourselves. For instance, did you know that burnout can come from a job where you aren't overworked or stressed out? Before I started working independently, I definitely had burnout, though I didn't think about it that way at the time. I was tired of my job and industry, ready for a change. If you are thinking you might need a change, take a look at this post from Kieran about his struggles to recover from burnout over the last year.
The best definition of burnout I’ve come across is a chronic state of being out of sync with one or more aspects of your life.
