How to Recover From Burnout In Anything
Do you find yourself unmotivated and exhausted with your work? Are you constantly pressured to put on a happy face, be overworked from 9 to 5, take care of your family and kids, keep the house in order, all while trying to maintain a fabulous and harmonious life?
Your brain can only handle being overwhelmed for so long! If you have been under constant stress during and after work, you may be on the road to mental burnout.
Through my career psychic readings, I’ve helped clients regain their balance, positivity, and passion for their work. Here is my advice on how to recover from burnout.
Signs you have mental burnout
Mental burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It happens when you’re overwhelmed, mentally and emotionally drained, unable to meet work demands, or constantly overworked.
Burnout fogs your brain, affecting your life decisions and how you do your work. As the stress continues, you start to lose the interest and motivation that led you to take on your career in the first place. Your energy and productivity are gone, leaving you hopeless, cynical, and feeling like you have nothing more to give.
If you are experiencing one or any of these signs, you are more than likely suffering from mental burnout.
- You are mentally and emotionally exhausted
- Your physical health is suffering – insomnia, fatigue, pain, muscle tension
- You are forgetful and have difficulty concentrating
- You are constantly frustrated and irritable
- You lost sight of yourself and your goals
- You lost your passion for work
- You have difficulty maintaining your relationships
- Your spiritual life has waned
- Your life is no longer enjoyable
It’s Time To Power down
If you are feeling burned out it’s time to take a step back, calm down, close your eyes, and take a deep breath. Repeat this multiple times until you’re in a stable and sound mindset.
It’s time to power down and take some time for yourself. If you want to know how to recover from burnout, the first step is mindfulness. Figure out what is weighing you down and how you can let it go.
For example, maybe you used to look forward to waking up at 6 am for your job, and now you can’t even seem to get out of bed. Perhaps you’ve been juggling too much in a short period of time or you realized that your job was not what you thought it would be.
Write down all the triggers of your burnout. Is it your boss? Your colleagues? The commute? The job itself? Or other external factors outside of your job? Number them in order from what triggers you the most to the least, with number 1 being the highest. Then look at your number 1 trigger and act on resolving it.
If you’ve been unhappy with your job for a long time, you’re experiencing the downside of choosing the wrong career. Consider taking some time off and think about if this is something you would like to do for the rest of your life. Though all jobs come with stress and frustration, they shouldn’t destroy your physical and mental health.
Regain your sanity
What do you do when nothing makes sense anymore? During times of burnout, you will feel like there’s no way out of this mess you’re in. You may feel trapped, but trust me, you’re not! Consider these steps to regain your sanity and recover:
1. Be kind to yourself because when you practice self-compassion, you become your own best friend and you don’t have to rely on anyone to pull you out. Though everyone needs external help, no one can really push you to make a change but yourself.
2. Celebrate your own successes no matter how small they are. Just getting out of bed and pulling yourself together is already a big accomplishment! Avoid looking down on yourself and comparing your success with others – it’s still a success!
3. Remember what matters most and if you’re lost in the moment, write down everyone and everything that’s important to you. It could be your family, your health, or your spirituality. Live for them and don’t let your current situation dictate your thoughts and emotions.
4. Stay grateful for those things that are important to you. There’s always something to be grateful for! At the end of the day, you are alive, breathing, and have everything you need under the sun. Keep a gratitude journal and list down at least 3 things you’re grateful for. Do this every day and you will experience life-changing results!
5. Start a social media detox because everything you see online is not always the truth. If you see someone on a beach or having a much better life than you, chances are they’re fake! Comparing your life with others is never healthy and just contributes more to your mental burnout. Once you start limiting your social media use, you will feel much more empowered!
6. Get active because research shows that exercise is much more effective than medication in treating depression. Make sure to squeeze in at least 30 minutes of physical activity to get your mind and body moving.
7. Reach out to other people, such as your close friends, family, or external support like a psychic who can help you manage your mental burnout. When you feel like you belong and have a strong circle of people around you, you are releasing dopamine, a happy hormone that improves your mood!
Escape from your reality
Transform your life through magical thinking! Magical thinking is when you can willingly switch off any negative thinking and believe that there is a power outside of yourself and the rational world. This means that when you are feeling hopeless, anxious, or depressed, you have the power to switch it off!
When you start magical thinking, you are escaping from your reality and you are allowing the Universe and higher powers to work through you. You can do this through positive affirmations, manifestations, meditation, and performing spiritual rituals.
You can also re-energize yourself with crystals if you’re burned out and need a little strength. Click here for the best crystals you can use to heal your burnout.
Going forward, choose to take control and don’t let others, even your own mind, belittle your own value and self-worth. If your career has been weighing you down for so long that it has controlled your energy and thoughts, remember that you have the power to change it! Your career should align with your true purpose, passion, and personal happiness.
