A Balanced Candle Won’t Burnout

Hanukkah, the holiday of lights, is one of the warmest times of the year, meant to be spent immersed in the love of friends and family. But for many caregivers, preparation for this holiday and all of its material expectations can become overwhelming and stressful. Whether they’re parents, teachers or healthcare providers, they can feel overextended to a dangerous degree. This feeling is only exacerbated by the fact that so many of us are culturally inclined to not see our own well-being and ability to function as a priority. Rather, the modern individual is pressured to “achieve” and “hustle,” leaving very little room for rest. This perspective is disastrous to our mental health and inevitably leads to burnout.
