Calling all Professionals & My nail of the DAY

Today I will exhale.
This morning I woke up and read an email from a blogger (her latest blogging venture is under the name We Live Style) who has been reading my posts for some time now. In fact, she remembered my blog back when I used to post weekly. Get a load of that, for all of you newbies to my blog, yes, there was a time when I produced weekly and dare I say it DAILY posts. Now I'm fortunate if I am able to pump out a few posts a month, and that saddens me because I have tons of things I would like to discuss. But alas too many things get in the way and prevent me from getting done the things that bring me enjoyment. Now don't get me wrong, I am not some drone just working 24/7 without ever taking a break, but I am a gal who prioritizes and yes my 9-5 career takes precedence. Coincidentally, I read an article from Forbes yesterday, which was retweeted by T from the blog Tea and Such and it discussed women burning out by age 30 primarily because of the ways in which we may overextend ourselves for the JOB. It mentioned that our professional male counterparts take more breaks on the job just to relax, along with a host of other "this job won't stress me out" exercises. Along with the job and other things that we all have to do I sat there thinking am I reeking of singed fabric from my burn out without even knowing it? Go on, take a whiff could my lack of daily blogs be an indication that I too have experienced a burn out?
Well today I exhale because for the last two days I have done something which I had not done in a long while- I went to bed early!!!!! Which in turn has allowed me to create a blog post for you this morning 6:38 am, but I feel good- very good. Perhaps this is a new day- heyyyyy.
What do you do to prevent the job and anything else in your life from burning you out?

I would be remiss if I didn't show you my sparkly work INAPPROPRIATE nails...lol
I'm wearing a combination of Trxie from Zoya and Gone Gonzo from the OPI (the Muppet collection). Both polishes will be featured in my vlog for this week.

Burn out is real! Going to bed early-- its been forever, but it sounds so good. Good for you. I think we all need to take a break and exhale every now and again.

Hey Maven
Last night I went to bed maybe too early but upon waking up I feel so refreshed. I had forgotten what it feels like to feel reinvigorated in this way ...whoa what a feeling :-).
thanks for reading.
