If so, you’re not alone. There are a lot of people feeling emotionally exhausted right now and there are a lot of reasons why–the pandemic, rising gas prices, economic uncertainty, and ongoing media reports about bad things happening in the world. For some people, the reason is personal. Caring for a relative, receiving an eviction notice, addressing childcare issues, or managing health problems are just a few major stressors that many people are feeling right now. When you feel emotionally exhausted, the typical self-care tips aren’t likely to work. Taking a bubble bath or getting some exercise might take the edge off for a minute but those self-care tips won’t relieve your exhaustion long-term. Fortunately, there are some more effective things that you can do to charge your batteries and relieve your emotional exhaustion. In this episode of The Verywell Mind Podcast, I share the symptoms of emotional exhaustion and the best thing you can do to address it. “I Can't Do This Anymore”: What to Do If You Are Experiencing Burnout More About the Podcast The Verywell Mind Podcast is available across all streaming platforms.
