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
I think I can relate to this... It is hard not to exercise when it helps to calm your system like nothing else does. Good idea to rule out any underlying health conditions first by talking to your GP.…
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
