How To Deal With Burnout
Are you experiencing brain fog?
Are you having a difficult time getting things done?
Are you struggling to get motivated?
If so, you may be experiencing burnout.
What Causes Burnout:
Everything from telehealth meetings to working from home without a change of scenery can be contributing factors to burnout.
Burnout Vs. Stress:
Keep in mind that burnout and stress are not the same thing. Those experiencing burnout often feel stuck, tired and confused.
Some also may experience physical symptoms such as headaches or fatigue.
The good news is, burnout doesn’t last forever and is easy to get out of if you put the work in.
Understand The Why:
Take some time to think about why you’re experiencing burnout. Did you get into a fight with a loved one? Are you overworked? Are you feeling lost? Once you have a better understanding behind the why, you can work towards a solution.
Understanding a problem is one thing. Actually coming up with a solution is something else. Sometimes certain problems can feel very intimidating and impossible to solve. But just because you feel something, doesn’t make it true.
If you’re having a difficult time thinking rationally, there are several things you can do such as go on a walk, take a nap or listen to an inspirational Podcast.
Take Care Of Yourself
We get it. Saying no can be tough. But when you’re experiencing burnout you have to take care of yourself before taking care of others. Even if that means turning down an invitation or opportunity.
