Burnt Out. 🌿
Yet again, I am burnt out. My ADHD brain doesn't know when to say no... but it has been better. Back in the day, pre-diagnosis, I would have said YES to everything. So 100% of things. Now I'm between 50-60% saying "YES" to what I should probably say no to. Not bad, but still a … Continue reading Burnt Out. 🌿

Minimalist[ish] Workout Equipment
