Feeling Job Burnout? Identify it and Take Action

December 6th, 2019

Have you ever experienced burnout? You’re motivated, taking on projects, firing on all cylinders, saying yes to helping with extra projects, maybe even working overtime to pay off extra on bills, and then, all of a sudden, you crash.

Everything hits you like a ton of bricks. You feel exhausted, stressed, and suddenly unmotivated to do anything. This is burnout. It crushes momentum, can undo your positive morale and productivity, but it’s also avoidable.

5 Tips to Avoid Burnout at Work

The holiday season is joyful, yet it’s also stressful for nearly everyone. During this time of year, it can increase your chances of experiencing job burnout. Since your best work will happen when you avoid burnout, follow these tips to stay on top of your performance.

Get Enough Sleep

Sleep is so essential for your overall health and also your professional performance. If you are on track to burnout, you may begin to experience insomnia or trouble sleeping. Do your best to get back on a healthy sleep schedule so you can perform your best at work and stay healthy.

It is also important to note that chronic lack of sleep can lead to severe mental and physical health issues. It can also be dangerous to drive or do your work with machinery while suffering from sleep deprivation.

Exercise & Stay Active

Staying active is another way to avoid burnout. Exercise is vital for both your physical and mental health. It decreases stress, improves work performance, will help you sleep better, and gives you more energy. Taking care of yourself will help you perform your best at work without experiencing physical or emotional exhaustion and avoid burnout.

Socialize Outside of Work

Making connections and nurturing relationships outside of the workplace is very important. Socializing outside of the office is emotionally fulfilling and for many, is energizing. Plus, when you get together with people other than your coworkers, you will talk about other topics so you can be connected to more than just work-related matters.

Don’t Be Afraid to Say No

It’s also important to remember that it is OK to say no sometimes. While it is good to help out a boss or coworker from time to time, if you never say no, you will not only experience burnout, but you may also be turning in subpar work; therefore, you won’t be doing anyone any favors. It is actually responsible to say no when you are already quite busy with work.
