Identify your burnout triggers
- Identifying your stressors means that you can make a plan to address them. They won't disappear overnight, but they can be better managed.
- Ask yourself, 'Do I have too much work on? Am I spreading myself too thin? Am I getting enough sleep? Is a certain relationship toxic?'
Things to remember when heading towards burnout
- It's okay to show vulnerability.
- You don't need to keep pushing and volunteering to take things on in order to be successful.
- Don't view saying no or working on self-care as bad.
- Pushing yourself to the point of burnout isn't good for your wellbeing.
- Be aware of your tipping point and when you need to start pulling back.
Strategies to avoid burnout
- Set time limits for scrolling through social media.
- Make time to do something you enjoy in your downtime, whether it's reading a book, cooking, playing with your kids or taking your dog to the beach.
- Ensure you're getting enough sleep. Seven to nine hours is how much the adult body needs on a regular basis.
- Practice the art of saying no.
