Sometimes you just have to stop and recharge.
You’ve been partying non-stop lately and now you’re beat. It seems as if it’s been one social event after another, and while you love socializing, you may have overdone it just a touch.
While it may have been for work, you’ve still been out way too late each night or maybe it was in celebration of an upcoming big event like a wedding. It could just be that you don’t want to feel like you’re missing out and you need to embrace everything as if you only have a few weeks to live.
Whatever the reason, you’re burnt out from too much socializing and you need to do something to recharge before you go back out in the world and start all over again.
You know there’s no shame in staying home every now and then, even if you’re a major social butterfly. And if you enjoy being a homebody, that’s okay, too. The problem is when you keep going and going and never stop because when you’re exhausted, you make yourself vulnerable to illness — both psychical and mental.
We all need to decompress sometimes and just chill. Taking a break from socializing non-stop is practicing self-care and is vital for your well-being. Unless you live on a space station or in a remote corner of the world, there will be other parties, events, gatherings, meetings, and meet and greets.
You can take a breather from socializing. You need to know that if you’re someone who thrives on socializing, there will be plenty of opportunities to do more of it in the future.
Everybody has their own way to regroup after excessive amounts of socializing. Since the zodiac signs we are born under have so much influence on us and our behavior, it’s not surprising that individuals born under each sign share certain behaviors — and that includes what they do to recover from too much socializing
The best thing for you to do is to take a long walk on the beach or take a hike on a beautiful mountain trail. Being out in nature, working your body while clearing your head, is a way for you to recharge and revitalize both your mind and spirit.
You need to grab your bestie and have a delicious cocktail you've created for the two of you or any kind of special beverage. You don't need to be alone to decompress from socializing, you just need to feel relaxed and comfortable and able to breathe. Who better to do that with than someone you trust like a friend or sibling?
No one can socialize like you, so when you've partied to full capacity, then you need to do a complete decompression and unplug from the world. That means no phone, computer, or tablet. Take a long bath, pet your pets, read, and/or meditate. Do things that are quiet and calm. And remember you don't need to constantly be rushing around to be productive; sometimes just sitting and thinking is the most constructive thing for yourself that you can do.
You've got a good instinct for when you need to pull back a little from socializing. When that time comes, spend a little time with some easy home improvements like picking fresh flowers from your garden and putting them in pretty glasses or vases around your house, or doing something to spruce up your furniture like painting that small bookshelf. By focusing on these small beautifying tasks; your brain and body will be able to decompress and recharge.
When you've been socializing non-stop, you need to take a break and get in touch with your spiritual side. If you're religious, take a moment to pray or go to the place you worship for some quiet contemplation. If you're not into any formal kind of religious belief, work on your breathing and do some Reiki or yoga.
Socializing takes a lot of energy for you, so when you're burnt out, you're more than encouraged to take some me time. You're hereby given permission to lay in bed and read for the entire day or catch up on your binge-watching. Chill out and don't get distracted by everything that needs your attention or needs fixing; instead, put your laser-like focus on doing nothing.
You're also entirely capable of doing too much socializing. You need to do that thing that's so difficult for you to do — you need to say "no." It's imperative for your state of mind to turn down some invitations for a while. Yes, you're going to miss out on some fun stuff, but in the long run, you'll be much happier and when you finally get back into the social scene, it's going to be even better. Practice it with me: "I'm sorry, I won't be able to attend your party."
You're not one for doing anything half-assed, so when you've had too much socializing, you have two choices: You can either do some sort of solo activity that will clear your mind like surfing, or you need to catch up on your sleep. While they're on two ends of the spectrum, either surfing or sleeping will help you clear your head, rejuvenate, and revitalize you.
Not socializing is really difficult for you, so when you need to re-energize from too much social activity, the best thing you can do is to write down all the spectacular experiences you've been having. Start that blog, write in your journal, return those emails, or write a letter to a faraway loved one. Writing will help center you and will help you relive all those fun times.
It's not unlikely that the socializing that's burnt you out has something to do with work. Maybe you've been in a week-long training situation, working on a group project, wooing potential clients, or having back-to-back meetings. You need a break, a staycation, or a regular vacation — anything that gets your mind off work on to relaxing and having fun.
If you don't have the time for a regular vacation, maybe get a room in a nice hotel and enjoy their amenities like a massage, room service, or exotic cocktails by the pool. Don't feel guilty — you've earned some rest and relaxation.
You're always doing so much for other people. Why not let your friends and family give to you instead? Some pampering like breakfast in bed, spa treatments, or getting your hair and/or nails done will do the trick to help you feel less tired, more rested and ready for whatever may come your way. You'll definitely want to go for some new kind of beauty treatment as you do enjoy trying any kind of new innovation.
When you've been on the party circuit for a while and you need to recharge, the thing that will energize you is being grateful and giving thanks. Send those thank you emails, thank the hosts on social media for the great time you had, and let the people that you care about know how important they are to you. Then when you start to feel refreshed, put your focus on your art. It can be fine art like painting or just wrapping a present in a beautiful and artistic way. Being creative helps to recharge you and makes you feel the most like yourself.
