Tips for Relighting After Burnout:

The current environment brings additional stress to our homes and offices. You all probably know some of the symptoms.

Here are but a few. Check them off and then consider some actions. 

Some Burnout Symptoms: 
  • Work leaves you physically and emotionally drained. 
  • You feel like you are accomplishing less and doing more. 
  • You put your work first but no one appreciates your efforts. 
  • You’ve lost your sense of humor and playfulness. 
  • You find yourself short-tempered and angry. 
  • You go on vacation but the feeling of overwhelm comes back immediately upon return. 


What can you do to gain a sense of control? 

Consider just some of these options: 
  • Hold certain times sacred. Mark off a period of time for yourself on your calendar and treat it with gold. 
  • Learn to say “no” by creating realistic boundaries. Speak up when you are overwhelmed. Remember, no one but YOU knows what you really do in the course of a day. Establish limits that honor the needs of the people around you while preserving the integrity of what you can honestly do. 
  • Create a workspace that nurtures your soul. Whether it’s filled with pictures of the grandkids or flowers from your garden, this space must speak of you. 
  • Exercise to burn off stress. 
  • Allow 15 minutes in the morning just for you. This is quiet time for centering, breathing, preparing for the day. You’ll be glad you did. 
Remember: 

You are the captain of your ship. Pay attention to the wind and waves.
