How I Prevent Burn Out

Recently I was asked my tips on preventing burn out, so I thought I would include my response here as well.

Burn out is real and it plagues so many of us.

Here are a few of my tips to help prevent it.

1.Proper nutrition. I make sure I feed and nourish my body well.

2. I make sure I make the time to get my workouts in. It can be as easy as going for a walk.

3. Connecting with family and friends.

4. Taking time off. We all need vacation, no matter how much we love what we do, we have to make time for a reset.

5. Proper rest. I make sure I am getting a good nights sleep. I like to take my magnesium at night, it contributes to a great nights rest. The CALM product is good product to help with sleep.

6. I definitely make sure I have recovery days in my schedule.

7. Setting boundaries is another way to prevent /help with burn out. It is OK to say NO at times.

We have to listen to what our mind and body needs. Take care of YOU. Self care is not selfish, it is a necessity.

How do you prevent burn out? Let me know in the comments.

Be well.

Daily Habits

 

According to Wikipedia habits are defined as a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously.

We all have habits or rituals we repeat daily, some good and some not so much and its the latter we want to change.

 

There is research that says it takes 21 days to form new habits, so it’s not going to happen overnight.  Whenever, I want to break a bad habit or habits and implement a new one, I first start with my mindset.  Secondly, I then have a mental plan on how overcome any road blocks that may occur and how to successfully deal with them.  I have discovered over time, that it is best to be patient with myself and to focus on only  changing one habit at a time.  It all starts with making the decision to change.
