Words From SMKA:

The 2009 Beatz and Lyrics 10th anniversary A3C mixtape was recorded in 72 hours at Salem Psalms Library in Atlanta, Ga. This year’s mission was to record the mixtape on site at the festival. With help from Unique Squared, one of the leaders in pro audio gear, the team brought out an RV stocked with all of the best gear from AVID/DigiDesign, Native Instruments, Focusrite, JBL, M Audio, Mackie and custom sound treatment from Auralex to create a professional recording studio that could travel to the Festival. Once the RV was assembled, recording started at 4 a.m. October 7th with Dungeon Family group The 5ive and did not stop until Sunday morning, as the Festival ended.

This project features contributions from over 70 different artists and producers. Artists like Camp Lo, Aleon Craft, Artifacts, J-Live,  4-ize, Senor Kaos and Sha Stimuli recorded tracks and other notables such as 9th Wonder, MURS, DJ Toomp, and DJ Evil Dee checked in.

We all get overworked at times. Sometimes it is because we take on more than we can emotionally handle. That’s right… I said we. A lot of it is because we made the choice. We either asked ourselves for it or somebody gave to us and we accepted it. HAAAA! Funny how it can be your fault most times. Well here is an article I found to help prevent and recover from a BURNOUT! The article goes into it’s causes, the signs as well as the difference between a Burnout and Stress. If you want to read the entire article check–> www.helpguide.org. FANGGGGGGG!!!!

What is burnout?

Burnout is a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed and unable to meet constant demands. As the stress continues, you begin to lose the interest or motivation that led you to take on a certain role in the first place.

Burnout reduces your productivity and saps your energy, leaving you feeling increasingly helpless, hopeless, cynical, and resentful. Eventually, you may feel like you have nothing more to give.

Most of us have days when we feel bored, overloaded, or unappreciated; when the dozen balls we keep in the air aren’t noticed, let alone rewarded; when dragging ourselves out of bed requires the determination of Hercules. If you feel like this most of the time, however, you may be flirting with burnout.

Preventing burnout:

If you recognize the warning signs of impending burnout in yourself, remember that it will only get worse if you leave it alone. But if you take steps to get your life back into balance, you can prevent burnout from becoming a full-blown breakdown.

Burnout prevention tips:

  • Start the day with a relaxing ritual. Rather jumping out of bed as soon as you wake up, spend at least fifteen minutes meditating, writing in your journal, doing gentle stretches, or reading something that inspires you.
  • Adopt healthy eating, exercising, and sleeping habits. When you eat right, engage in regular physical activity, and get plenty of rest, you have the energy and resilience to deal with life’s hassles and demands.
  • Set boundaries. Don’t overextend yourself. Learn how to say “no” to requests on your time. If you find this difficult, remind yourself that saying “no” allows you to say “yes” to the things that you truly want to do.
  • Take a daily break from technology. Set a time each day when you completely disconnect. Put away your laptop, turn off your phone, and stop checking email.
  • Nourish your creative side. Creativity is a powerful antidote to burnout. Try something new, start a fun project, or resume a favorite hobby. Choose activities that have nothing to do with work.
  • Learn how to manage stress. When you’re on the road to burnout, you may feel helpless. But you have a lot more control over stress than you may think. Learning how to manage stress can help you regain your balance.

Recovering from burnout:

Sometimes it’s too late to prevent burnout – you’re already past the breaking point. If that’s the case, it’s important to take your burnout very seriously. Trying to push through the exhaustion and continue as you have been will only cause further emotional and physical damage.

While the tips for preventing burnout are still helpful at this stage, recovery requires additional steps.

Burnout recovery strategy #1: Slow down

When you’ve reached the end stage of burnout, adjusting your attitude or looking after your health isn’t going to solve the problem. You need to force yourself to slow down or take a break. Cut back whatever commitments and activities you can. Give yourself time to rest, reflect, and heal.

Burnout recovery strategy #2: Get support

When you’re burned out, the natural tendency is to protect what little energy you have left by isolating yourself. But your friends and family are more important than ever during difficult times. Turn to your loved ones for support. Simply sharing your feelings with another person can relieve some of the burden.

Burnout recovery strategy #3: Reevaluate your goals and priorities

Burnout is an undeniable sign that something important in your life is not working. Take time to think about your hopes, goals, and dreams. Are you neglecting something that is truly important to you? Burnout can be an opportunity to rediscover what really makes you happy and to change course accordingly.
