Burnout looks like this.
Really though, burnout looks like this…..
Burnout is when you just can’t go on. thinking, being, knowing, continuing, sleeping, being awake, talking, answering questions, pretending.
If you are experiencing burnout, one of the hardest things to do is to step off the treadmill but it is the thing you need to force yourself to do the most. The consequences of burnout are breakdown. Emotional/physical/spiritual/energetic breakdown.
Some strategies to counter burnout are:
Remembering it isn’t going to be the end of the world if you change the status quo.
People will respond to you how you expect them to sub-consciously so take some time to meditate and be alone to evaluate what you really want in your environment.
Rest, even if it means laying down for twenty minutes or turning off the devices!
Do not answer the phone, the email or the door for a mandatory half hour period every day.
Be kind to yourself first.
Eat well and drink plenty of water.
Watch a funny movie and don’t pay yourself out for the downtime.
Read a book, do a self-hypnosis, get a massage.
Remember the key to avoiding burnout is to recognise patterns that need changing and do one thing at a time to change them. If you try to throw the baby and the bathwater out at the same time you have probably already burned out.
Take magnesium, zinc and B vitamins to help you help your nervous system and body to cope.
STOP for a bit!
I hope this helps you. You are allowed to be yourself. That is why you were put on this Earth in the first place. It is all about self love and acceptance not work, worry and strain incorporating stress.
Please if you haven’t already, get this hypnosis track and relax!!!!!! Please look after yourself. You deserve it. It isn’t only your car that needs servicing.
love and light
