Burnt-out? Over-Functioning?

By Tabasom Eblaghie,
Registered Clinical Counsellor

I’ve often noticed that when I am in an over-functioning mode, there is an interesting outcome as a result – I under-think. Under-thinking about life, our health, and self-care often leads to a state of BURNOUT, fatigue and exhaustion. Pretty typical in most lives these days right?

The reverse can also happen, which is under-functioning. When we are not functioning at the level we were meant to, we start to over-think. As you’ve probably heard, “an idle mind is the devil’s workshop”. We may start to allow vain imaginations to take over, become judgmental of everything in our lives, & negative thoughts run rampant. Fear often rears its ugly head – about ourselves and life’s challenges. Under-functioning then leads to over-thinking, which leads to PARALYSIS – we just don’t want to do anything!

Are you functioning at an optimal level? Did you have a moment in life when you were at your best physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually?
