Fatigue when accompanied by an apathetic outlook and decreased motivation
Changes in sleep patterns
Increased sensitivity to pain
Reduced ability to concentrate or remember things
While it’s increasingly important to work harder, it’s just as important to take time for yourself. Avoid burnout by scheduling time for yourself to do those things that renew your spirit.
