Getting Rid of Burnout!

Are there moments when you realize your life needs to be simplified? Things have just become too complicated. Phones of all flavors, text, email, text being email … messaging period; we’re more available to any and everyone than ever. Maintaining our focus without interruption is all the more unlikely.

These are a few methods that can help to eliminate burnout and get you back on track.

What is Burnout?

Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines it as “exhaustion of physical or emotional strength or motivation.”

Take attention to your self-care.

Taking good care of YOU is critical if you intend to put the “best” of yourself forward in every part of your daily life and with the people and situations, you encounter instead of the leftovers of you! Make sure you’re permitting yourself to make self-care a priority. Self-care will show others how to perceive and respect you by valuing and appreciating who you are [and not leaving a lingering aroma to the opposite on your way out.

Establish rigid boundaries and enforce them.

Use the word “no” more often, and especially when saying “yes” would be lying to yourself.

Delegate tasks to others that they can handle.

Superheroes are characters in comic books and stories, and while they are fun to imagine and think about … they aren’t real! If you are trying to do it all by yourself, a full one-person show, then it’s time to consider help. It is important to give up some of the control to decrease the number of things swarming your “tasks” list. Being able to recognize when you have a need AND being able to ask for help (when possible) is critical. Never forget the fact that the most successful people work in teams; they don’t succeed alone.


Get rid of completely or reduce energy drains.

Clutter, situations, and people are all things that sap your energy! Get rid of them. Stuff that drains us are things that are unresolved, unfinished, undone, incomplete, or avoided. For example clutter, unanswered messages, unfinished business, repairs, unpaid bills, avoided conflicts/confrontations, and negative thinking. And have fun! Every one of us requires downtime. Always make sure to mix in some fun into your life – your productivity and quality of life will thank you! 🙂
