Another question I'm afraid....
I'm trying to keep going despite what (I guess) can only really be burnout and as a result I don't have the energy to stick to my usual routines.
Just to clarify, my comfort and order comes from my fitness regime: Pilates every morning, walk every lunchtime and cycling, SUP or kettlebells whenever I can - but I barely have the energy to move at the moment and my routine - my safety net - is falling apart.
Does anyone else experience this and if so - how do you deal with it? and more importantly, how can I get back to keeping my fitness up?
(I have to add that burnout anxiety ruins my sleep. I drop off beautifully but wake frequently from vivid nightmares, which really isn't helpful!)
Any tips gratefully received
If what you're describing is burnout, then a break in routine seems to help a lot of people. Not that the routine itself is bad, but everyone needs a break from time to time. So try breaking your routine in some way - doesn't have to be everything, maybe just changing one part every now and then. Read up on burnout and try some of the suggestions they mention on there x
