#152 Making Room for Rest While Raising Littles with Brittany J. Turner
Oct 27, 2020 Season 6 Episode 152
Deanna Mason

When you have young children, the reality of being well rested may seem elusive.

You may even joke about its reality. "Rest? What is rest?"

The thing is, when you take a lack of rest and couple it with a busy lifestyle, the end result is inevitable.

Burnout.

And burnout can manifest itself in different ways including*:

  • Sense of failure and self-doubt.
  • Feeling helpless, trapped, and defeated.
  • Detachment, feeling alone in the world.
  • Loss of motivation.
  • Increasingly cynical and negative outlook.
  • Decreased satisfaction and sense of accomplishment.
