Stop “should-ing” yourself and start receiving. Having days without to-do lists is critical. During this time, find what lights you up and do that. Do something totally impractical or do something just for the pleasure of it. (I found myself making a lot of soup!) In fact, pleasure is a great teacher. Find joy, feel good, spend time laughing, learning, and lightening up. Remember, burnout is a consequence of habitually “should-ing” yourself. Your job is to disrupt that old pattern with a new feel-good one. Listen to your soul’s impulses and allow yourself to fill your cup.
