7 Ways to Stop Burnout

Posted by

How are you? Do you feel tired? Or maybe like giving up? You could be suffering from burnout. Burnout happens when you take on too much work, set super-high expectations, or just become over-stressed by your goals or projects. This can especially happen when trying to lose weight, at work, or even at home. Check out our best tips to prevent burnout so you can stay on track! 

7 Tips to Beat Burnout

  1. Drink Water - Water cures everything doesn't it? Not only drinking water one of the healthiest things you can do. A sip of cold water can rejuvenate you, relax you, even get your blood flowing again. Sip with intention and stand at the sink and take a few sips, without your phone or work in your hand. 
  2. Exercise - Take a walk, do a few jumping jacks, or go to yoga. If your diet or workout is a source of your burnout, try something new. Recruit a neighbor, co-worker, or friend to take a walk around the block with you. Focus on you, not on if you are going to lose weight or get your steps. 
  3. Intimacy - Sit with a friend, a partner, even you kids and just be present with them. Whether you just talk, read a book, or even go to dinner let the time be about just the two of you.  
  4. Unplug - One of the best things you can do for your focus and health is to put down the phone or computer. This decreases burnout by actually letting you focus. You also are not worried about texts, calls, and e-mails. Work from your computer? Write it down, you may find putting a pen to paper actually gets the juices flowing.  
  5. Get Musical - Sing, play, groove however you enjoy music just let yourself enjoy it! Dancing is a great option to get blood flowing and get your workout in for the day. Music has also been shown to boost brain power and stress. 
  6. Community - Get involved with a group. It can be reaching out to someone at the gym to be your accountability, signing up to volunteer, or even join a workout class. Being a part of a community, allows you to make connections so you are not going at it alone. We all know support groups make reaching your goals easier and more fun! 
  7. Do Something New - Step out of your habits. Going to the same group class every day? Try a new one! Turn on the T.V. when you get stressed? Try writing in your journal or reading instead. Have an unhealthy habit like smoking or eating when stressed? Really switch it up and adopt a healthy habit like going on a walk.

Burnout can really put a halt to your reaching your goals. Allowing your self to refocus your energy is a great way to stay on track wit your weight loss goals (or even personal/professional goals). We encourage you to adopt at least one of these tips today.
