Overwhelming feeling of not being good enough
This is when your inner mean girl teams up with your entire itty-bitty-shitty committee. At this point it almost feels like you are completely inadequate. Which FYI is not true. You’re just in need of self-care and rest.
Difficulty focusing on your normal routine
This phase feels like aliens have taken over your brain. You put the milk in the cupboard and the toast in the oven. Or (and please don’t tell me I’m alone) you forget to pick your kid up from wherever they are. It’s almost like space monkey aliens have taken over and even everyday tasks that you do everyday feel hard to focus on and remember.
You feel numb or empty
This is the warning sign that is in neon writing. If you feel empty, if you are finding it hard to experience moments of joy then it’s time to clear your schedule and nap, rest…bless your body with good food and even get some sunshine and fresh air.
