Fill the container.
My fuel tank totally ran out of gas yesterday. The vehicle brought me to the place I wanted but then told me "that’s it. You cannot continue if you do not fill the tank." At first I tried to continue. The vehicle drove for a few more minutes. And stopped.
The vehicle stopped near a gas station. So symbolic.

I thought how much the vehicle is just like us.

One of the best known places for burn out is the workplace. However, such situations are also common in other areas of life.

No one fills their container for them to continue.

If you work in a place that empties your tank, I recommend looking for new channels to fill it. For example, during off-hours, work through sports, music, hobbies… For you ladies, it is known that meetings with friends help ...
I thought of something. Let's be "container stockers" and say good things to others at least once a day: "Just a good word, or two, no more than that" ...
I've already started.
