WHY BURNOUT HAPPENS:

Over-commitment / trying to do it all and not asking for help from others
Personalization and internalization of “failure”
Inability to keep work/life boundaries
Trying to rationalize or control things that are uncontrollable or out of your control.
Playing the victim and feeling sorry for yourself
Taking a present problem and pretending it is forever
Trying to be too available to too many people / letting too many people consume your emotional energy without taking time to renew your energy towards yourself
Letting others steal your sunshine – burnout is contagious, it’s an attitude.

 

WAYS TO BEAT BURNOUT:

Do not ignore how you really feel. Burnout isn’t something you just push through – it’s a signal that something needs to change or shift.
Take a break.
Learn to say no.
Get back to the basics – remember why you are doing it in the first place.

Keep exercise and movement a priority
Invest in your spiritual growth
