Healing Quotes for When You’re Feeling Burned Out

We’ve all felt burned out — exhausted, overwhelmed, and worn out — at one time or another. While “burnout” is often described as a result of being overworked at our jobs, it can also come from challenges in our personal lives, a lack of support, and everyday obligations that keep us endlessly busy.

Burnout has become a prevalent state of physical and emotional exhaustion in our always-on society, and if we don’t know how to recognize it and heal from it, it can have some serious effects on our health. While it may be easier said than done, it’s important to be proactive in mitigating those stressors and prioritizing self-care before we hit our limit. Burnout is a complex issue. But by taking time for rest, reframing expectations on ourselves, setting boundaries, and seeking support, we can work toward recharging and nourishing ourselves.

If you’re feeling burned out, take a moment to rest and reset with these 13 healing quotes.

Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.
