Burn out

Ever just suddenly get a sudden case of being burned out on routine things you do daily? I don't mean because you're depressed or unhappy but just because you suddenly just flat don't want to do whatever it is. Kind of like one of those you know you need to get it done and it wouldn't take that long if you made yourself do it and you really enjoy doing it but you just don't want to.

My days are like this so often now that it IS my new routine! ROFL. And it is only going to get worse when the boys are out of school for the summer. That messes things up a bit too. But at least we will all get to sleep in. I might make new routines if I am getting more sleep. The boys are older now though and hopefully I can get them to help me with some household things. But I'm sure there will still be days when I just don't wanna!

I think in my case it's actually that I can't do what I really want to do so therefore I don't want to do anything...lol

I have a chronic case of burn-out. It's called fibromyalgia. I am always tired and in pain. Every time I walk into the kitchen and see the counter covered with dirty dishes I want to scream! It would be nice if my 10 and 14 year olds would help out around the house, even just a little bit. *sigh*

it is true that there days when we refuse to do routine work. we want to do something else which is out of the ordinary things that we perform each day. this burn out thing must be treated well so it will go out easy and leave us after a few hours more. what i'd do in order to come out the wineer, i'd go out and spend sometime which will ease out the feling. a day at the mall will be fine, or a day at the beach on a fine day will be great. try it and know the magic.

I often feel that way. I have so many things that I should do and take care of but I just dont want to do them. i dont really like things hanging over my head that I have to do, but sometimes I will just let things sit there and not do anything about them. It is kind of self defeating.

I think that is exactly the definition of "burnout." I think you need to have a break, maybe have a bit of walk outside or something you don't usually do. That would give you some air and a little break. Have a nice day!
