An Introvert's Guide to Beating Burnout


 “It’s better to burn out than to rust.”

~ Neil Young

While I’m not sure that’s true, either way, the process can be painful. The great news is that if we burn out, we have the chance to light up once more.

Life can seem difficult for introverts, and by introverts I mean those people who find energy from their alone time. If you’re an introvert and feeling lost, unmotivated or perhaps like a failure, you’re not alone.

Modern life is best suited to the extroverts among us. Introverts feel too accessible for their own comfort. We’re expected to respond to emails or texts immediately. We’re always on our phones because people expect an instant response. At work we’re expected to do more with less; to produce more or see more clients in a shorter amount of time.
