VIRTUAL HIGH FIVE AND THANK YOU TO:
BillCarlinOFR “Guys, get past the pink!”
WHY BURNOUT HAPPENS:
- Over-commitment / trying to do it all and not asking for help from others
- Personalization and internalization of “failure”
- Inability to keep work/life boundaries
- Trying to rationalize or control things that are uncontrollable or out of your control.
- Playing the victim and feeling sorry for yourself
- Taking a present problem and pretending it is forever
- Trying to be too available to too many people / letting too many people consume your emotional energy without taking time to renew your energy towards yourself
- Letting others steal your sunshine – burnout is contagious, it’s an attitude.
WAYS TO BEAT BURNOUT:
- Do not ignore how you really feel. Burnout isn’t something you just push through – it’s a signal that something needs to change or shift.
- Take a break.
- Learn to say no.
- Get back to the basics – remember why you are doing it in the first place.
- Make a morning proclamation – Joyce Meyer’s statements
- If it’s burnout at work, speak to your supervisor or mentor
- Update your resume – to see how much you have accomplished
- Put together a to-done list
- Step back with a wider lens of understanding and see how you are contributing
- Reach out to others
- Keep your eye on the light at the end of the tunnel
- Consider your heart – do you need to change your career or your choices or your capacity?
- Make sure you are eating well
- Keep exercise and movement a priority
- Invest in your spiritual growth
- Reprioritize sleep – even just try to get an extra 30 minutes per night can make a difference. Make sleep a non-negotiable priority.
- Confide your emotions and how you are feeling to someone – keeping burnout in can burn out your spirit
- Set better boundaries
- Ask others for help
- Think about small micro-changes to your life – not big changes because big changes can be overwhelming.
- Spend some time with someone who has a positive attitude
BURN BRIGHT, NOT OUT.
There is one way to burn bright. It is to BE YOU.
