I have been learning that if you stay indoors and write every single day, burnout is not only a possibility it becomes reality.
I love to write, but the past week it has become a chore, and I really hate that. I need to finish my book and I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel, but burnout is preventing me from finishing. Do you see my frustration?
So my husband bought me a bike and we decided to get out of the house and enjoy ourselves.
We chose a park near our home and it was so beautiful I had to take pictures.
Everything reminded me of my book. I can look at my photos when I write a scene. It’s very helpful.
Going out for a walk or bike ride is wonderful for the body and the mind.
I do suggest taking someone with you if there are lots of secluded areas.
The main thing is to enjoy yourself, your family and nature.
Take in the scenery.
After I got home I had a nice shower, cooked dinner for my husband and sat down to relax. Then all of a sudden I could see things clearer for my story. So I began to write. I wrote about 5,000 words that evening. My day was so productive and it was all because I got out of my routine and just enjoyed myself.
Tell me what you do to avoid burnout. It doesn’t have to be from writing, it could be from your job, or from family. Whatever it is, share it here, have a blessed day!
