Avoiding Burnout

26 Oct

Burnout is a serious condition caused by extreme long-term stress in either a person’s individual or professional life. Once you are stuck in the cycle of burnout, it can be difficult to escape, so it’s better to avoid it altogether.

Have Creative Outlets

Suppose you work in a job where you are told what to do and when. Your burnout might be partly caused by not using your creativity. To help keep this from happening, make sure you maintain some sort of creative outlet. This could be as simple as a DIY house project, experimenting in the kitchen, or even just journaling each day. Just make sure you let yourself be creative in some aspect to stop burnout in its tracks.

Take Care Of You

Sometimes when you are in a high-stress, tough job, it can be difficult to find time for yourself. But this time for yourself is necessary. A job is just a job. If you need a day to take care of yourself, take it. If you need a spa weekend retreat, go for it. Whatever you decide to do, remember your body is not a machine, and you need to take care of yourself before you can work to take care of others.

Find Support

Another way to help prevent burnout is by having a good support system in place. If you don’t feel you currently have one, go out and find one! This may be easier than you think, especially if you are looking for a creative outlet mentioned above. Look for clubs or organizations which participate in activities you desire and join one. Spending time with like-minded individuals will do wonders for your mental well-being, especially if you are doing a hobby you love at the same time!

Identify What You Need From Work If your burnout results from something you are not getting from your work to feel fulfilled, it’s time to figure out just what you need to stop the burnout. Once you realize this, bring it up to your boss or supervisor. They may have ideas to help.
