Having had an emotionally extremely exhausting last two months, I've been feeling lately that my batteries are completely drained and that I was simply not able to work the way I'm supposed to, with a number of psychological and physical symptoms. I've now been to see a doctor; he's labelled the muddle of symptoms a burnout and he's written me off sick for the next three weeks.
I'll definitely not be stealth-working from home; instead, I'm hoping to rest, recuperate, go on walks, catch up on reading, meet up with friends for coffee if/when I feel like it, and generally try not to stress myself with avoidable responsibilities. I was wondering, though, if any of you have any experiences with this and if you have any observations or tips that may be of help. (I have a history of depressions, so I've got some mechanisms of dealing with psychological and neurochemical issues, but anything useful along the lines of "Seven sure-fire ways of dealing with a burnout! (Number 3 made me cry into my beard a little!" - well, okay, not exactly along *those* lines - would be much welcome.)
