The Aftermath of Burnout: How to Rejuvenate Yourself

If you've recently suffered burnout, you'll likely be looking for ways to restore your peace, health, and happiness. It's important to treat yourself lovingly after such a trauma to your system so you don't develop chronic health conditions.
 
Burnout can cause all sorts of mental and emotional issues, including anxiety and depression. You should try to recognize the signs that lead to burnout, but this may not always be possible. If you concentrate on restoring yourself after burnout, you can avoid these issues and get your true self back.
 
Consider these burnout tips to help you regain your strength:
 
1.    Find a new direction. The best, most permanent, way of dealing with burnout is to focus on making sustainable life changes. Ask yourself whether or not you're happy in your current situation. Perhaps it's time to make a major life shift, such as a new career or downsizing your home.
 
2.    Take a break. It's best to get away from the situation that has caused you to burn out. This may mean going out for a walk and getting away for a few hours, or it may mean giving yourself a full blown vacation.
  • You don't necessarily have to spend a lot of money for a vacation. Your goal is to relax and clear your mind. You can certainly do this at home or in your local community.
3.    Solve the problem. If you're currently in the middle of a stressful situation, take action to solve the problem right away as best as you can. Consider the possible solutions to the problem and ask for help from others if necessary.
 
4.    Gain control. Take control of the situation where possible. Realize that you can solve your problems and you're not doomed to remain in this state forever. Also, have the wisdom to accept that there are situations that are beyond your control.
  • Do what you can to improve your situation, but avoid worrying about the things out of your control.
5.    Be open and honest. Sometimes it's best to set your pride aside and ask for help when you need it. Open up about the issues you're facing with a close friend or relative. If that's not an option for you, seek the help of a counselor.
 
Stress Management
 
If burnout tends to be a common occurrence for you, it would be in your best interest to start studying some stress management techniques.
 
There are certain things you can do to combat stress:
  • Don't take on too much at work or at home.
  • Remember that you can - and should - tell people "no."
  • Make time for yourself.
  • Ask for help from others.
Know Your Warning Signs
 
Once you've suffered burnout, you'll certainly want to know how you can avoid a similar situation in the future. Study the factors that led to burnout, and identify your mistakes so you can avoid making them again in the future.
 
In the End
 
These strategies will help you regain peace with yourself. If there are any outstanding issues that you need to resolve, seek solutions so you can achieve peace. You can do so through self-reflection, prayer, meditation, and communication. And once you do, you'll avoid burnout altogether!

My biggest challenge during the Kaizen Challenge was doing the challenge and completing it. I am a pilot (ex-helicopter pilot and again in the future) and no two days in a row are the same. I never go to bed at the same time due to different flight schedules (one day getting up at 03:45 to start work at 04:45 and going to bed the next day at midnight due to a late landing. Then next week I am doing an international flight Read more...

 Wealth Insight 2009-06-05 Going beyond visualizing your goal Something hit me the other day. I realized why visualizing your goal doesn’t always work like it should. A picture is not enough. You have to LIVE the feeling it gives you. So if you want good days, you have to enjoy this one. This very one that you are in right now! No matter how it started or what came before. Okay, if it was really and truly a shocker, you may not make it wonderful but you will surely improve it. And if... Read more...
