  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Impatience with coworkers or clients
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Feeling exhausted, regardless of sleep

What can help you overcome work burnout?

Once you’ve realized you have burnout, you can begin to work on overcoming it. There are a number of different ways to manage what you’re experiencing. Some may work better for you than others. Some ways to help include:

 

  • Changing up your situation. Sometimes, the best way to overcome burnout is to change the factors that brought it on in the first place. This can be anything from discussing the challenges you’re having with your supervisor all the way to starting to look to change jobs or careers.
  • Using your “off” time to truly switch off. It’s difficult, especially if you’re working from home, to draw clear work/life boundaries. Consider establishing a routine after work that clearly delineates between “work hours” and “home hours,” and don’t be tempted to let work tasks bleed into your non-working hours, even if you’re only steps from your desk at all times.
  • Incorporating mindful movement into your day. Activities such as yoga, stretching, or light exercise are helpful for staying aware of your body and giving your mind some time to focus only on yourself and how you’re feeling.
