Are You Burning Out? Six Things You Need To Know

Mental Break - In Progress

Stress Does this look familiar?

Hey guys!

Today, I want to start off by saying it does not matter if you have an existing mental illness or not. We are all at risk for burnout.

Burnout:

Physical or mental collapse caused by overwork or stress.

Are you burning out?

In Canada, billions of dollars (yes, billions) are spent related to mental health problems in the workplace. This accounts for over 75% of short term disability claims.

It’s an epidemic.

I have fell victim to burnout before. In hindsight, I feel I could have prevented it had I paid more attention to the signs. I would like to go over some of the signs today in the hopes that if you’re reading this, you can catch and prevent burnout before it’s too late.

1. Sleep Disturbances:

I place a lot of importance on this one. Proper sleep is crucial for our mental…

What is the perfect world we wish to have?

pin pong comix

Perfect-world Authors: James Leong & Franken Doll

Perfect World Today is a series of  8 preludes, culminating in the epic Perfect World Saga. The story is about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays an important role in the human society. The authors viewed human being to be unreliable at times of need and the existence of an AI, whether they are in the form of a human or a software, makes peoples’ life manageable and breathable. The story reflects on peoples’ dependence on AI not just as a helper, but as a member of a family such as your granny, son, pet, boss and even your lover!

I bought this comic book from James Leong & Franken Doll during the January Panelgraph’s meet. I must admit there is an urge to support fellow artists in our comics industry but what really makes me open my wallet is the art on the cover…

On This Day

Can we choose choose peace, unity, love and hope?

anewperspectiveperhaps

Today is an important day to remember that you get back exactly what you give out. There is energy all around us, an ebb and flow of give and take. If you give off resistance, you invite resistance back into your life. If you offer respect and humility, that same humility and respect will be returned to you. We have to be very cautious and remember that what we focus on is what we get more of. We do have control over what we bring into this world. We shape it with our thoughts and actions but it is imperative to be painfully honest with ourselves. Do we fight for tolerance while at the same time being intolerant ourselves? There is no justification to skirt around this. The truth doesn’t change to fit your agenda. You cannot apply labels to someone else and excuse that same behavior for yourself because…

Mary Baker Eddy: A Voice for Progress

Adventures of the Madcap Christian Scientist

In preparing for the Women’s March today,  I’ve found myself drawn to the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of the Christian Science church. Her words are as timely today as they were when she first began her exploration of Christian Science 150 years ago. She talks of women’s rights, oppression, social injustice, and the need to protect freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. She writes that “Progress is the law of God…” and writes, “… there is never a retrograde step, never a return to positions outgrown.” Her words bring me hope and help prepare my heart for the journey that lies ahead for us – not just today, but in the coming months. 

Here are some of the thoughts from Mary Baker Eddy that have inspired me this morning:

“The conclusion cannot now be pushed, that women have no rights that man is bound to respect…

Something Fishy!

I don’t agree with the way the husband and wife does. However, this happens in a lot of cases. Can’t we be more careful with our words and even actions?

Hello Everyone,

(fiction)

He was ringing the door bell continuously for about 7 minutes but no response.  He was fuming at his wife, tried to call her on her mobile but same result – no response.  Tired of standing at the door and receiving no response he went back to office where he had kept an extra set of keys for emergency situation.  Throughout the drive to and fro he was thinking where his wife could have gone, how could she be so irresponsible to not to respond neither to the door bell nor to the calls.  Husband, in his thoughts “what kind of behaviour is this?  She knows that I would be hungry and tired but she doesn’t care for me.  I am sure she might have gone to some friend’s place or shopping.  I am fed up with all this”.  Not even once the thought of his wife…
