Now, every time I write down a deadline, schedule an activity or say yes to another commitment on my calendar, I make sure I’ve scheduled me time. If I haven’t, I call a girlfriend and plan to eat lunch together, unplug from all electronic devices for 30 minutes and blast some upbeat music, or simply read a book. These are the kinds of things that I’m learning to add to my schedule instead of another committed yes.

How about you? What are some of the ways you take care of you to avoid emotional burnout?
