Vegetarian Ideal

as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Avoiding Emotional Exhaustion






Dealing with Emotional Exhaustion: 

 

Emotional exhaustion occurs when you have exceeded your capacity for emotional stress.

Signs of emotional exhaustion include, but are not limited to:

  • low tolerance to stress or stressful situations;
  • inattentiveness;
  • lack of motivation; and
  • physical fatigue.


When we’re emotionally drained we have little tolerance for anything. So what can be done about it?

Try these coping skills:

  • relaxation
  • meditation
  • mindfulness
  • staying in the moment
  • taking things one step at a time, and
  • asking for help. 

 

Choose or invent whatever will keep you sane.

You may also find solace in physical activities such as exercise or yoga.

Physical activities often release our happy hormones, making it easier to recuperate from an emotional exhausting time.

Try the 4 Rs principle:

  1. relax, 
  2. rest, 
  3. reflect, and 
  4. release.


By being aware of our mind and body, we can detect the signs of emotional exhaustion early and work on ways to avoid a major breakdown.
