How can you tell that it’s time to re-prioritise things and give yourself a bit of a break? Here’s how:

You Think You Have to be Perfect

If you think you have to be perfect, you could be suffering from anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns. This is because you’ll always be striving for perfection. Perfectionism can get in the way of your happiness, and you could suffer from low self-esteem because of this.

You Feel Like a Failure 

Those that try to be perfect often feel like a failure. You could feel worthless, depressed, socially isolated, and fail to sleep well. If you constantly feel like a failure, it’s time to take a step back and re-evaluate things.

You Don’t Know When to Stop Working 

Perhaps you work very long days because it’s part of your job. However, working very long hours can be detrimental to your health. Switch your laptop and your work phone off. If you don’t choose to disconnect, in theory, you’re always at work.

You Struggle to Make Decisions

If you suffer from depression, anxiety, or another mental health condition, you could struggle to make decisions. When we are in a state of flight or fight, decision-making can be impossible and have a huge impact on your self-confidence.

You Lay Awake thinking About Work

If you lay awake at night thinking about work, chances are you’re more stressed than you think. Write down everything that’s concerning you as this can help you to feel better. You might also want to get some exercise as it can help you sleep.

You Keep Getting Sick 

If you’re close to burnout your physical health can be affected. Headaches or muscle or stomach aches can be an indication that you’re burned out. There may also be other causes of your physical pain, but it’s worth knowing that stress can be a factor.
