Approximately 25% of adults experience some symptoms of burnout. These symptoms can include feeling run down and having little to no physical or emotional energy.
The term “Burnout” gets used a lot in the workplace. Burnout relates to a lot more than just being overworked or tired. It also relates to a continuous sense of pessimism about the future as well as the present.
Burnout can lead to a decline in the quality of the work that you do. Did you know that busy people can experience burnout outside of their job? Some people’s lives can be incredibly at home. This too can lead to pessimism about the future as well as the present.
How you Could Avoid Burnout
One of the best ways for you to deal with burnout is to take action before your life becomes too negative. If you’re already experiencing burnout, there are still some things you can do:
Take Time Out
You don’t have to take time off your job in Brayton, for example, to have time out. Why not take some small breaks every day to talk to positive people, have a stretch, and enjoy a few slow, deep breaths?
Think about what you would like to achieve with the rest of your working day. Focus on the important things.
Unplug From Technology
Consider turning your phone’s and tablet’s notifications off at least 1 hour before you go to bed. If you have to check emails, check them at set times of the day.
Give Yourself a Reward
Schedule some time with a friend and enjoy a coffee with them. Go for a walk
Signs You Could Almost be Burned Out
- Experiencing stress and health issues
- Having relationship difficulties because of your feelings surrounding your job
- Having a hard time making work-related decisions or concentrating at work
- Complaining about your interactions with your colleagues or avoiding interactions with them
- Feeling afraid when your vacation comes to an end
You may also want to think about the things you can control. Write a list of those things you have a good amount of control over. Can your schedule be more flexible? Could you collaborate with your colleagues a little more? When you focus on what you can control, you might get that energy boost you need.
