Burnt out? Try this.
Everybody goes through cases in their life when they just can not seem to muster up the energy to do much of anything or get anything done. Here we find a few simple solutions that could put the lead back in your pencil metaphorically and get you up and going.
- Burnt out you eventually make it home, brain fried, energy drained, feeling defeated and a bit hopeless. You burst in the door with a scowl on your face, blurting out, “This isn’t fair! Does my boss not understand that I’m drowning in work? I need to quit. I can’t keep doing this. I don’t know what to do.”
- Irrational emotions can manifest themselves through a ton of different focuses, such as work, finances, romantic relationships, or your social life. We’re unable to control our emotions and lash out at others when, among other things, a part of our brain called the middle prefrontal cortex (mPFC) isn’t as strong as it could be.
- Studies show that repeated mindfulness meditation practice strengthens the mPFC, both in activation and in physical size. Neuroscientists believe that the mPFC plays one of the most important roles in integrating our higher, “intellectual” brain areas.
