If you find yourself constantly doing any of the following you may be on your way to burn out:
Relaxing by playing with your phone, or on social media channels
Working on your laptop late at night
Going straight from one task or chore to the next, without allowing wind down time
Constantly checking your phone or emails
Regular refueling on coffee and other caffeinated drinks
Giving in to sugar cravings
Skipping meals because you are ‘too busy’
Patterns Of Behaviour
It is easy to fall into negative patterns and cycles of behaviour that can impact on health and wellbeing over time. Aim to gradually reduce and eliminate any or all of the following:
Doing everything quickly, without being mindful
Overworking, due to lack of prioritising
Poor time management
Overreacting to things that usually don’t bother you
When you are over tired and feeling off-balance it is easy to feel over emotional. Your emotions are heightened whenever your body is running on automatic pilot. Downtime allows you to reset emotions, so that they are not so easily triggered via cycles of habits and behaviours.
Feeling crabby because you are super tired
Feeling tearful or sad, for no obvious reason
If completely ignored, physical symptoms have a habit of eventually making your body come to a standstill. To avoid burn out it’s important to pay attention to the following signs:
Restless sleep, or lack of sleep
Sore shoulders and back
Teeth clenching at night
Skin breaks out
Your body is not designed to be in constant switched on mode all of the time. Fear of failure, and the need to justify everything you do, can lead to performance pressure or anxiety. In the same way that you feel accountable for all of your demands and challenges, it is also necessary to take responsibility for your health and wellbeing.
To manage your energy levels, and to avoid excessive fatigue, it’s important to listen to your body.
Become mindful – pay attention to the signs that indicate you are tired, feeling run down or overwhelmed, so that you don’t re-create the cycle again and again.
Take time out – make time to switch off from your daily demands, so that you can get yourself back in balance easily.
Introduce positive new habits that make you feel energised and invigorated.
