Most of us have felt it at least once or twice. We’ve devoted so much time, so many resources, toward planning for what might come someday, we get burned out. We feel overwhelmed by how much we still feel we need to do. It feels like there will never be enough time, enough money, to accomplish our goals.
This is normal. This is a natural emotional reaction.
When it happens, it is your mind’s way of telling you that you need to take a break for a bit. Really, it isn’t healthy to spend all of your waking hours doing nothing but prepping, thinking about prepping, reading about prepping.
Take the well-deserved break and do something fun. Spend some time with the kids. Go on a day trip to see something exciting.
Take a Saturday night and hit the movies with your significant other. Even better, just grab something from Redbox or find something on Netflix. Pop some corn and veg out for the evening.
Get together with some friends and go to a ball game. Or a live band. Or a play.
The point is to take some time to take a step back and enjoy life. The prepping will be there when you return.
