If you're working on:

#sensory quality of life improvements
figuring out your wants and needs

trying to get better at noticing and responding to what's going on in your own body is an essential part of making progress.

If don't know what's going on inside come on you can't tell when you are pushing too hard, or what things are affecting you, or how, whether your being your masked or unmasked self, etc.
People ask me all the time how to get better at this stuff and it's actually pretty simple. Thought it does take time and attention.

Noticing what's going on in one single body part in this particular moment, creates associations between that sensation and its meaning.

This is where I grew up. A home filled with so much love, memory, support. That still houses my family. A home 2100 miles away from where I live now.
I begin my journey back to reality today, after almost four weeks surrounded by so much love. Reconnecting with friends I haven't seen in decades. Watching my kids be kids... Grass stained clothes, sticky ice cream faces, playing with the deer every morning in our backyard.
It took 10 days into our trip for my sympathetic nervous system to recalibrate to a stage where then I could begin rest and recovery. 10 days.

Yesterday I mentioned the four key factors in identifying burnout:

1. Deep emotional exhaustion
2. Diminished sense of accomplishment
3. Loss of identity/sense of self
4. Feeling Hopeless

Let's go a little further down the rabbit hole . . .
Anxiety and shame —
These two are so huge I will dedicate a separate thread to each of them later on. However, generalized or chronic anxiety is one of the main causes of burnout. Shame is one of the primary drivers of anxiety. Burnout is always accompanied by anxiety and shame.
