How to Handle Burnout | Twitter Chat

Hi all,

I often have meaningful heartfelt conversations with friends on Twitter.

Sometimes they share advice, other times it's me. I want to bring these meaningful conversations to more people, so you can benefit too. Let me know how you like this new format.

When it's interfering with your life, time to get help." - JP2

"The only PR I know is pull request 😢😢" - JP

"Love it!" EH

Thread 3

"Also get a 17oz/500ml water bottle like this amzn.to/2M4Zq5o and fill it 4 times every day. You'll know it's working when you start going to the bathroom more often!" - AK

"How can u cut coffee and sugar.." - MK

"Stop comparing yourself to others. It’s the killer of all happiness. Stop comparing yourself to an ideal version of yourself. Just focus on the day. If you work hard, you’ll make progress." - BNS

"Practice being in the moment. Take life in one day. If that’s too much, take it by the hour, minute or even second. You are not your work. To strive is great. But, not when you stress about the future and things that haven’t happened yet." - BNS

"You’re a tough and stubborn person. You’re ill because of determination and focus. It’s a double edged sword. I developed panic attacks because I pushed too hard. If you experiencing things like that make changes now! Or it’ll fuck your up for a few years. Trust me." - BNS
