Burnout. What is it? What does it mean?
When I hear the term, I think of a light bulb that is burned out, but that really isn’t a good analogy. We may feel that we have no energy left, but we don’t need to be thrown away and replaced. There are ways to be refreshed when we’re feeling burned out, and there are things we can do to avoid getting to the point of burnout in the first place. Because unlike a light bulb, we don’t suddenly stop. There are signs that we’re doing too much or losing our excitement.
This week the Crew has shared some of their thoughts on the subject. As usual, there are many different perspectives shared. Hopefully you’ll see something that will help you regain your spark for homeschooling.
