      I love my kids, husband, and job; but I am burnt out. Does anyone have advice (budget friendly) to help with burnout. I am in a funk lately due to being the middle of winter and working 40+ hours and juggling parenting responsibilities. I just don’t feel as happy and energetic as I do in the middle of the summer. Unfortunately, my husband and kids suffer because I feel so blah. Anyone else experience the same winter funk? If so, how do you combat it?

      start exercising

      I agree. Working out helps. You could also maybe find a hobby you’re interested in. What’s something you’ve always wanted to do or learn?

      I feel the same way in the Winter. I try and just go no matter what. Sometimes something as simple as a trip.k to the store or a short walk does wonders.

      Indulge in a hobby of yours, exercise, do some yoga or stretching, go for a walk by yourself to clear your mind.

      Lately I feel like I have no energy burnt out! I have tried to eat more things with protein to help me from feeling so burnt out. I am still feeling like this, does anyone have any ideas on what I can eat or vitamins to take?

      I absolutely get the winter funk. I try to do as many fun family activities as i can and delegate tasks so i dont get resentful of doing all the work.

      Can you join with another family to create a “babysitting co-op” and take turns with childcare so you can have a real afternoon off… for date with husband, or go to a movie…

      Music music and more music. Dance to it, and bring others in as well. It’ll get the endorphins flowing and make everyone laugh.
