Avoid Burnout With A Bit Of Balance

Avoid Burnout With A Bit Of Balance

You know those days, the ones where it is so busy at the office that you impulsively agree to work 2 hours overtime and when you eventually get home, you are met with piles of laundry, dinner to get ready and the kids trying to get your attention all at the same time. Sound familiar? Well, a regular routine like this can quickly spiral into burnout.

Take a look at these 5 ways in which you can create a manageable work-life balance and avoid burnout:

Prioritise Self-Care
Self-care is extremely important and we don't only mean it in the sense of pampering sessions and bubble baths. Just as care on the outside is important, so is caring for yourself from the inside. Making sure you are drinking enough water, sleeping well at night, and nourishing your body with healthy foods are all forms of self-care that are crucial to maintaining a healthy, balanced life.

Make A Schedule
A schedule is a great way to compartmentalise and prioritise your daily tasks. A schedule is a perfect daily guide that you can follow to ensure you complete everything you need to in a specific timeframe. Not to mention, it also makes it easier to set boundaries and move on without spending too much time on one thing and letting others drag on to the next day.

Stop Working At A Specific Time
This is a difficult one to stick to but skipping this step can be one of the biggest contributors to burnout. Often in the workplace, we are fooled by thinking working extreme hours has a direct correlation to our value and performance, which isn't necessarily the case. Setting a time limit for yourself also helps with productivity and will help you to prioritise and better manage your time in the long run.

This one is essential! Getting a full night's rest means your body and brain have enough time to replenish and repair so you have the energy to be alert, and cognitive. It's also proven to improve your mood and have a positive impact on your overall mindset in all areas of life.

Move Your Body
Often, exercise is the first thing people skip when they feel stressed. Moving your body with a little bit of exercise each day has the most positive impact on your physical and mental health as it releases the feel-good hormones in your brain that boosts your mood and allows you to keep going.

These are just a few ways you can maintain a better work-life balance and avoid dangerous periods of burnout.
