Most Mondays I try to put together some resources for you that make your #NPCOMMLIFE a little easier.

But as I was doing some reading to come up with an idea for today’s #NPCOMMLIFE post, I came across 30 Good Morning Motivation Quotes To Kickstart Your Day. I got to “I would have it inscribed on the curtains of your bed and the walls of your chamber: If you do not rise early you can make progress in nothing” and literally just screamed “OH SHUT UP ALREADY!” to my computer. I may have a little burnout myself.

I know tips on self-care and avoiding burnout can be helpful, but let’s face it – you being burned out is more than likely not your fault.

And all the tips and inspirations quotes in the world won’t change the culture at your organization or the state of the world.

So today I am going to be the opposite of inspiring. Today I say stare in silence at the person who just came in your office and needs a brochure ready to go tomorrow. Eat that candy bar. Watch YouTube videos at your desk. Roll your eyes at your boss who wants you to put together a viral video (or maybe just do that one in your head – I don’t want you to get fired).  Write a blog post that won’t really help anyone.

Or better yet, take a mental health day. You can learn more about them in my post Let’s Talk About Mental Health Days.

And remember:

You Are Enough and You Are Not Alone.
