We’ve all been there many times in our lives. Whether it was in college during finals week when we saved all that textbook reading for the last minute, or at our first jobs, when we tried to be superman our first month to impress the boss. Burnout is no fun! Constant stress will leave you feeling disillusioned, helpless, and exhausted. It might even contribute to you developing an anxiety disorder which can quickly lead to depression. Your problems will start to seem insurmountable, and everything begins to seem bleak. It will start to become difficult to muster enough energy to care when beaten down by the impossible task that your job seems to require. Seek help today! There are ways to prevent burnout, and we’ll go over some tips on this week’s blog to help you out! Let’s begin.
Burnout often stems from your occupation. Feeling overworked and undervalued is toxic! From the hard working office job in which you haven’t had a vacation in years, you’re too frazzled when trying to relax at home, and you’re struggling to make ends meet financially while raising a family is the perfect cocktail for burnout. Your lifestyle and personality traits can also contribute to burnout. How do you balance work and personal life? What do you do during your time off? If you feel you have little or no control over you work, and there is a general lack of recognition or reward for a job well done, it becomes increasingly harder to enjoy yourself while not working. You’ll constantly feel like you’ll need to catch up, work harder, and produce impossible results from a job that doesn’t that has unrealistic expectations. Additionally, if your job is unclear, or overly demanding about its expectations, and you’re constantly working in a chaotic or high-pressure environment, be wary of the signs of burnout!
In order to prevent burnout, you need to pay attention to your lifestyle choices and personality traits. If you find yourself working too much, without enough time for socializing or relaxing, or you feel you have a lack of close, supportive relationships, burnout will take advantage of you much quicker. IF you have a type A personality in which you are overly critical of your work, and take on too many responsibilities, you’ll burnout much quicker as well. Social contact is nature’s antidote for stress. Talking face to face with a good listener will calm your nerves and promote relaxation, especially if they offer trusted advice. Opening up does not burden others, and if your loved one is making you feel like a burden, it’s time to seek help from someone else. You can also try to be more sociable with your coworkers. Maybe they’re feeling the same way. Struggling collectively is far better than facing a looming monstrosity by yourself! Schedule events after work, or ask the person who sits behind you out to lunch one day! Expanding your social network will make your days much easier and your nights filled with sleep and rejuvenation once more.
