3 Easy Tips for Breaking Up With Burnout NOW

#1 Face & Embrace Your Stress

Until we can take an honest look at our stress and its causes (known as stressors), we’ll keep feeling stuck in the cycle of chronic stress and burnout. 

Taking a hard look at what isn’t working in our lives can feel scary, but when we can bravely face our stress, we empower ourselves by shining a light on what needs changing. Then, we can embrace the stress by seeing it as a messenger telling us that something’s wrong. 

Oftentimes, we’re feeling stressed out because one or more of our needs isn’t being met. This brings us to tip #2…

#2 Determine Why Your Needs Aren’t Getting Met

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by stress and that it’s affecting everything in our lives. However, chances are that when we feel seriously stressed and burnt out, it’s because we have some basic needs that aren’t being met. And by taking time to reflect on what these needs are, we can pinpoint what changes need to be made to help us feel more at ease. 

For instance, if you find yourself feeling stressed out about work, ask yourself what’s making you feel that way. Are you struggling to manage your time, so you end up working later than you want to, and are wiped out at the end of the day? 

One thing that could help with this is learning to manage your time effectively is being able to set boundaries around how and when you work – not just with others, but with yourself as well. And so, we move on to tip #3…

#3 Get Comfortable Setting Strong & Healthy Boundaries

Boundaries help us define what’s our responsibility, and what isn’t. They also help us honor our limits and avoid over-extending ourselves. Contrary to popular belief, boundaries don’t keep things out – they help us keep the good stuff, like our energy and joy, in.

If you find it hard to set boundaries, ask yourself why. Are you worried about upsetting people? Do you not feel like you deserve to have your limits honored?

It’s also important to set boundaries with ourselves. This means realizing when we’re near our limits and doing what we need to be able to avoid going past them. Until we can hold ourselves accountable for staying within our own boundaries, we can’t expect others to honor our boundaries as well.
