rorokdesigns

 

Hello Everyone! This is the January blog post of my monthly series. I did a post on Feminism, Me, Sustainable + Ethical Fashion, and a lot more topics. Burnout is something I have a lot of experience with and I think needs to be talked about. I wasn’t aware of what burnout was until this past year and learning what it is and what I can do to prevent it has benefited me. I wanted to write this post for a while not only so I could educate myself more, but also create more of an awareness for it. Comment down below any questions you might have, but there are also more links down below.
