This article hits home hard, not only for me, but nearly everyone i am meeting in my age group.
We are officially suffering from Millennial Burnout and according to the American Psychological Association, we are now the most anxious generation... "sigh!". #sendhelp
I'm running out of fingers to count how many of us are starting conversations with "My therapist says..." By the way it's "totes" cool to have a therapist and highly recommended!
How many to-do lists do you honestly have?
Don't worry, I’m not going to be a Debbie Downer. Here are a few ways you can manage and deal with burnout:
1. Exercise (my favourite)
2. Meditating (highly recommend the Headspace app)
3. Putting your phone in another room at night
4. Speaking to someone
5. Prioritizing some time for yourself
6. Get a massage #treatyoself

I know a lot of people think this is another typical ‘millennial snowflake’ issue. But the world changes and generations adapt. I know life was also difficult for our parents and grandparents, with a lot more hard graft, but things are tough now in different ways. If previous generations knew what I went through on a daily basis, they wouldn’t think of millennials as lazy and entitled. We’re just trying to do our best, and often, it's harder than it looks.
