To avoid going through a burnout phase especially when you sense that you are about to hit that very spot; you need to act on it immediately rather than putting it off. The following are a few tips on how to avoid a burnout.
Commence your day with meditation. In the morning, instead of heading straight to work, give yourself at least 10 to 20 minutes to meditate. Early morning meditation will boost your concentration and energy levels and hence you’ll find yourself to be more productive at work.
Adopt a healthy lifestyle. Eat only natural and healthy foods with the occasional cheat treats. Also, get in the habit of working out daily for at least 20 minutes and try sleeping at the same time every day as this would be best for your body. Adapting to these changes will help reduce stress levels and this will enable you to deal with your work situation more adeptly.
Don’t grant free favors at work. If your co-workers or superiors ask you to do something that is not part of your job description, instead of just doing what they want, make sure you get something in return. If they refuse to compensate you for your time, then simply say no. Overwhelming yourself with free favors will only cause you to burnout in the end.
