Blog Hop: Avoiding Volunteer Burnout…Especially at This Time of Year
VOLUNTEER (V.): TO DO SOMETHING, ESPECIALLY FOR OTHER PEOPLE OR FOR AN ORGANIZATION, WILLINGLY AND WITHOUT BEING FORCED OR PAID TO DO IT.
As moms, we wear many hats… we are wives, sisters, daughters, friends, employees, and quite often, volunteers. And, for many of us, the holiday season is the Super Bowl of our volunteering efforts. We are room mom’ing our hearts out, planning neighborhood and family parties, and organizing a slew of gifts. Then there are the clothes and toy drives, local non-profit and faith-based initiatives, and PTO-sponsored holiday events. Someone needs to lend a hand to “all the things,” and we women are the very best at taking it all on.
Oh, but there’s a flip side. ‘Tis the season to also get burned out.
