Where are You on the Path from Self-Awareness to Burnout?
Study the path laid out below. Notice that it takes more than a single step to get from one end to the other. It also takes time.
Where are you on this path?
In a few words, self-care recharges the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual energy stores you need to engage in the daily battle with stress and recover fully. Self-awareness prevents crossing the line from the healthy, helpful side of stress that makes life exciting to the damaging, overwhelming realm of stress that leaves you prone to burnout and disease.
