Burnout Relief Strategies

Are you suffering from burnout? Whether it's caused by work issues, stress at home, relationship challenges, or a combination of all them, it can cause a frightening feeling of hopelessness!  

Burnout often causes a feeling of numbness and not knowing how to get your life headed back in the right direction.
 
Take heart - hope is not lost! There are some strategies you can utilize to overcome burnout, once and for all.
 
Try these techniques to get relief from burnout:
 
1.    Don't blame yourself. Life is hectic and stressful, especially with all the intense demands placed on our shoulders. If you're feeling burnt out, rather than blaming yourself, be proactive in getting back in the saddle so you can feel like yourself again.
  • Remember, you're in control of your destiny. Focus on what you can do, not what you think you should do.
2.    Stop being so serious. With the stress and responsibilities you carry on a daily basis, you may be in need of some plain ol' silly time. Release your inhibitions and have some fun!
  • Whether it be dancing in your living room or swinging on the swings at a local park, take some time to find your inner child again. This will help you let go of your current stress level, even if it's just for a little while.
     
  • Making time to have fun will give you a chance to refocus and get your life and priorities back to where they need to be.
3.    Stay healthy. It's important to stay in peak physical condition when you're under constant stress. Eat many servings of fruits and vegetables, drink large amounts of water, and exercise.
  • Fit exercise into your busy schedule by making an appointment with yourself to exercise, and then keep your appointment!
4.    Improve your time management skills. You may be burnt out because you're trying to fit a week's worth of stuff into a single day. Unfortunately, that's impossible! Learning how to budget the time in your day more effectively will relieve a lot of this time pressure and stress.
  • Good time management will lessen the feeling of being overwhelmed, as well as enable you to have the time you need to do what you want to do.
5.    Get enough sleep. This allows your body to rest, rejuvenate, and start the upcoming day with more energy. You can also deal with stressful situations better when you're alert and focused.
  • If you adhere to the 8 hours per night rule, you'll find yourself more focused, levelheaded, and patient.

What can I say. This was the most exciting 49 days of my life.  Just taking a few minutes per day can change your life.  One thing I must confess, is that my husband is a much more positive person than what I am and I needed this 49 days challenge to change my mind.    I can be influenced very easily from Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-06-12 How Wealth Creators think is how they get rich If you want to break through the thinking that says – making money is hard; it takes years; it takes money to make money; it is very risky; it’s winner take all; most people take the gamble and don’t win; and a tiny handful of blessed or lucky or talented or well-connected people take the lion’s share ... ... then I strongly, strongly recommend that you take a look at my... Read more...

Am I rich yet?? This is a question I wrote down a few weeks before I started the Kaizen Challenge.   And the answer I wrote down to the question was this: No. I am not rich yet, in the sense of being financially independent, but boy - do I live a life of abundance!   Now that I have done the Kaizen Challenge?  Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-12-25 Running On Faith   This newsletter goes out on Christmas day. This is a day when Christians are reminded of their faith. So today I am going to be talking a bit about faith.   But it’s another kind of faith I’m thinking of right now. A kind of faith that has kept the material world as we know it going for nearly 40 years.   A kind of faith that gives me faith in the power of faith itself!   In 1971 Nixon unpegged the dollar from gold.... Read more...
