i'm having to really monitor more self care,, life balance, rest, relaxation, recovery and what picks up my energy and spirit, as i still try to complete very demanding challenges this year. For decades I've had to push myself ridiculously hard in extremely difficult challenges way more demanding than normal stress levels . i had Drs telling me decades ago that i was deeply burnt out and I needed urgently a few years of low stress but that never happened quite the opposite. Some people have caring, kind, supportiv,e interested, validating, family members that help them through tough times too. Its known those people do better but not everyone is lucky enough to have that. In fact i've had to be the one doing very heavy caretaking of others for years on end as well as other very high pressures on me. its well documented the toll of burn out, heavy caretaking or other pressures ongoingly. Have others also found they went through a time when they couldnt just push themselves in tough challenges like they once could, but that they had to make more conscious regular efforts to monitor themselves and take time out or find better self care and life balance, nature, hobbies relaxation, socialising, rest, down time, or the very demanding challenges and demands they faced drained them too much and brought them down ?
