Against this backdrop, I was continuing to focus on getting seven hours in bed (with all the time zone changes that didn't equate to seven hours of sleep, but I was at least horizontal), exercising regularly, keeping in touch with friends, staying involved in my church, serving my coaching clients, and being open to the huge influx of new client inquiries that have come in.

Housewife Burnout

It took four punches of the snooze button to get me out of bed this morning. I wasn't tired. Or sick, for that matter. But I was sick and tired. Sick and tired of the same old routine, minute after minute, day after day, year after year, since 1995, when I made the decision to stay at home to manage our family.

The Race Without a Finish Line -- From 'Busy-ness' to 'Busy-less'

Kasia Jamroz | Posted 05.20.2016 | Healthy Living
Kasia Jamroz

Being busy has nothing to do with being productive. It actually shields our dodging of important yet very uncomfortable actions. It restricts professional performance and limits mental capacity by compromising decision-making processes and letting our impulses loose. Although being busy can make us feel more alive, the state itself is not sustainable in the long term.

Alexander Hamilton: Father of American Banking and American Burnout

Arianna Huffington | Posted 05.04.2016 | Politics

On Tuesday, the musical Hamilton was nominated for a record 16 Tony awards. And three weeks ago, its creator and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, won the Pulitzer Prize. And it's all, of course, richly deserved. But one angle of the saga of Hamilton, both on-stage and off, that has not been commented on is how it shows the value of time off. Alexander Hamilton wasn't just the subject of our country's first sex scandal. He was perhaps also our first fully documented case -- and the founding father -- of political burnout. And one of the biggest takeaways from the musical, for me, is this question: If the hard-driving Hamilton had given himself the time he needed to recharge, how much better -- and longer -- would he have been able to serve the adopted country he loved so much?
