I know that sometimes my husband can tell me the boundary between resiliency and hitting the wall before I can see it and suggest some rest and relaxation. I have learned to listen to him and take the time if he sees me getting “short” with the kids or himself because then I know that my work stress is creeping into home life. With sleep and sometimes that needed personal day off, I can go back and tackle what seemed immountable the day before. Our organization actually has given us an extra 3 personal days to be used at our own discretion this year to help with the burnout situation.
