Life can be a whirlwind of school, friendships, activities, and everything in between. But sometimes, all that hustle and bustle can lead to burnout – a real challenge for our mental health.
Let’s talk about some signs to watch out for:
Constant Exhaustion: Are you feeling tired all the time, no matter how much you sleep? That could be a sign that your mental battery is running low.
Withdrawal from Activities: If you suddenly lose interest in things you used to love, it might be your mind’s way of saying, “Hey, I need a break.”
Overwhelming Stress: When stress feels like a constant companion, and you can’t seem to shake it off, it’s time to pay attention.
Physical Symptoms: Burnout doesn’t just affect your mind. It can lead to headaches, stomachaches, and even a weakened immune system.
