Keepin’ It Real: How to Avoid Burnout

We all run into the same problem:

Work starts picking up, the to-do list gets longer, and little by little, your professional life starts to completely overwhelm your real life. Maybe you manage to keep everything in a delicate balance for a while, but before you know it, you’re completely swamped. Then exhausted. Then, burnout sets in.

Well, here’s the good news: burnout is completely, utterly avoidable.

And that’s what this week’s video is all about. So sit your busy-body-butt down for a moment, and take a look:

What’s the best way to sidestep burnout? By creating a schedule.

I know, I know – not exactly your idea of a fun-filled afternoon, but it’s how you take life by the reigns in this situation. When your professional life starts encroaching into “you time”, you have to make sure you can schedule in absolutely everything… including fun.

Your work is your life, and you do what you do because you’re driven to serve others. But here’s the truth: we don’t want you serving us burned out!

Take care of yourself, so your work can come from a place of energy and overflowing abundance… not desperation and exhaustion.

How do YOU kick burnout’s butt? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

Love,
