When Energy Takes a Backseat

Burnout is sneaky. It doesn’t kick the door down; it slowly slips in. Feeling drained all the time, losing touch with things you loved, or just getting cynical about your classes – they’re red flags. Recognizing them? That’s winning half the battle. And once you do, it’s time to mix things up. Maybe it’s time for a lazy weekend, picking up that guitar again, or chatting with a counselor. Tune in to yourself, and when things feel off, remember, it’s okay to take a breather.
