Four Steps To Bounce Back From Burnout

22 Nov

Burnout is a dangerous condition that can affect you both physically and mentally. If you’ve recently discovered you are suffering from burnout, you may be wondering just how you can overcome it. Unfortunately, overcoming burnout isn’t easy, but there are several things you can do to help yourself bounce back.

1. Take A Break

This one is the most important. If you are feeling burned out, stop what you are doing. This doesn’t mean you have to call it quits permanently. Take a break and step back. Take a few days or weeks, or maybe even months, off. Once you overcome your burnout, you will be able to think creatively again, and then you may see an answer to the problem you were facing—the answer you may not have been able to see before because you were too burned out.

2. Invest In Self Care

After you have taken a step back from whatever was causing your burnout, it’s time to focus on self-care. Of course, self-care looks different to everyone, so you need to invest in the self-care that you need. Some self-care activities that may help you are meditation, a spa day, exercise, eating healthy, more sleep, relaxation, and engaging in a hobby you love.

3. Work Through Your Emotions

In general, burnout doesn’t happen without emotional influence. And your emotional influence comes from within, so it is now time to deal with your emotions and discover just what led to you feeling burned out. This can be done by journaling, making a list of what you are grateful for, and creating positive affirmations for yourself. You can also work on changing your emotional responses to certain stimuli, so if you find yourself in a similar situation in the future, you will be able to bring yourself to a different end.

4. Try Again

This doesn’t mean you go back to your same issue which caused your burnout before. This means you use your creativity to find a new way to do things. If your trying again includes a new job or venture, that’s fine! Your trying again could include going back to the same profession but switching companies. Either way, this step is entirely up to you, and you need to do what is best for you.

Bouncing back from burnout can be difficult, but if you step away from the problem, take care of yourself, and work on your emotions, you may find escaping the burnout loop is easier than you thought. And once the feelings of burnout are gone, you’ll be able to think enough to try again or try something new for your life.
