If you notice any of these warning signs creeping into your periphery, take heed — you’re on the way to Burnout City. Here’s how to escape.
This is perhaps the BEST article on burnout I’ve ever read. Rather than just a list of clinical facts about burnout, Kelly (“Cordelia”) shares what it’s REALLY like to have burnout — and shares exactly how to work through it.
Reblogging for my BFF. She’s at a big deal conference thingy this week for work, but I figured she might hop on Tumblr in need of some eye candy in-between being super important. ;)

I’ve caught a summer cold. :(
But here’s the thing: Between my hypoglycemia (I can’t have processed sugars…) and my DEADLY allergy to Dextromethorphan (I go into Anaphylaxis…), my options for store-bought sore throat & cough medicines are limited. Okay, more like non-existent.
But this really helped me last night when my throat was so sore that it was keeping me awake when I was trying to rest:
- Microwave/boil a cup of water.
- Add in a teeny-tiny amount of honey. Stir in until “clear.” (Honey doesn’t mess with my glucose levels if I use a minuscule amount — but if it messes with yours, then leave this step out).
- Stir in just a tad of orange juice. (Lemon juice would probably also work, but I didn’t have any).
It’ll taste pretty terrible — almost exactly like a store-bought remedy! — but it works really well. Or, at least, it did for me. It calmed down my throat pain enough that I was finally able to get some sleep. (And the steam cleared up my sinus pressure!).
Anyway, if you’re sick and your body hates everything “normal” like mine does, then give this a try. Maybe it’ll help you feel a little better. <3
