Feeling exhausted, cynical, annoyed, or unable to focus at work? These early signs of burnout can arise from sustaining a long-term stressful or unrewarding routine without relief.
The following tips can help you maintain your balance amid the everyday stress of work:
- Take short breaks: A stroll outside, meditating or plugging into music can help shut down the negativity and energize you.
- Get some distance: Regain perspective about your life and work by reconnecting with your family, traveling, walking in nature or simply doing something you enjoy.
- Move! Regular physical activity can help you to better deal with stress.
- Adjust your attitude: Rediscover enjoyable aspects of your work.
