Tips To Prevent Burnout

Websters dictionary defines Burnout as meaning:  “Exhaustion of physical or emotional strength or motivation usually as a result of prolonged stress or frustration.”

There are two huge reasons this happens:

1.  We lack motivation

2.  We lack rejuvenation

Here are our 5 tips to prevent Burning Out:

TIP ONE:  Learn to manage stress levels

What do you do to help emotional balance?  Do you meditate, read, nap, exercise, go for a brisk walk?  Learning to manage your stress levels not only prevents burnout but manages your productivity, it is a critical skill.

TIP TWO;  Determine what is important to you

Do you know what is important to you?  Do you know what is valuable in your career, in your life.  Are you working on the valuable.  When you spend your time on high valued activities you increase your satisfaction levels.

TIP THREE:  Who is your Cheerleading Team
