What do you have in place for burnout?

Burnout. It’s not a word or a circumstance I like to face or consider. But it happens. There is a time for everything under the sun. Maybe burnout is one of those things put in place for us to stop and contemplate all that we do from a detached perspective.

What do you have in place for burnout?

I have a few things:

  • Say “no” for a season.
  • Read a book that you want to read.
  • Go for a walk.
  • Plan a vacation. (Planning is half the fun!)
  • Drink tea (or coffee) on the front porch away from the computer or phone.
  • Journal, meditate, and pray.
  • Make a photo album.
  • Unplug for a day, a few days, a week.
  • Prepare favorite recipes for no reason.
  • Eat comfort food—chocolate, cake, French bread.

Your turn. Any ideas? Anything that has worked for you?

    Great topic! I like your list

    Taking a break for coffee, Diet Coke or a snack.

    Planning some breaks in the schedule for days off.

    Giving myself time to compete things without rushing.

    Stopping to watch a movie or soccer match.

    Taking at least one day of the weekend off.

    Experiencing burnout at this time myself! I have been decluttering. Not just my closets and cabinets but life. Saying no, releasing obligations to someone else for a change. Trying to slow down.
    My coping includes:
    Staying in bed for a day
    Taking a walk
    Tea and listening to nature.
    Taking a drive in the countryside.

    We really all need to take care of ourselves and listen to our bodies and slow down.

      I agree to all of that! Take care. Love you bunches!!
