We need to stop glamourizing overworking ourselves! The ABSENCE of sleep, healthy diet, relaxation, time with family & friends, is not alright! It seems to me that employers expect more & more from employees & give less & less! STOP IT!! Say NO! We need to maintain a HEALTHY BALANCE in our lives. Burnout is NOT a badge of honor! #lifebalance #breathe

Corporate America would replace us in minutes. Why give until our well is dry??

That’s why I recently left the apartment community! Loved my job but it was getting too overwhelming plus no family time.

The country as a whole is burnt out. Hence the labor shortages. Exhausted leaders will lead exhausted teams. It’s a recipe for disaster.

This could not be more true! Work to live. Not live to work. Life is so short and there's so much more than your career. This...coming from someone who absolutely loves her job and loves this industry! You must find balance. The better you are in your personal life, the better you'll be at work.

Well said. I love my job too. I am always so grateful that I love what I do and that I fell into this industry. Never boring, always challenged and always learning. That being said, you do have to have balance. You’re working for your family but trust me they would rather have you home.

So true. I worked day in and out. I was also pregnant during the pandemic just to get fired for high turn over when the entire country is experiencing record breaking quit rates. Exhausting and infuriating.
