How To Reduce Burnout In A Competitive workplace

Working hard for your money is not a new concept. It’s one that is buried deep into our minds. We are transfixed by the idea of the hustle and a plethora of side hustles. Every now and again it is best for us to take some time to step back. This is just to reduce the burnout we all seem to face at least one point in our lives.

Stress is inevitable. It is a normal part of work and life, but prolonged stress is what seeps into our core and creates a corruption of productivity. Properly managing your time around what is important is an art yet to be mastered.

There are many factors that can make work a bit stressful. Working overtime or working through breaks can burn us out. Trying to finish a task in a too short time can add additional pressure. Unrealistic targets are a big issue. Poor communication can lead to arguments and tension. Communication plays a vital role in a good working environment. You and your co-workers should make this regular practice. If you work alone, then the pressure is all on you and that can be even more stressful.

Yes, a five to ten-minute break at work is going to keep you from going insane on a daily basis, but extended time away from routine and chaos will do wonders. A simple change in environment is all it takes. You can call it a mini-vacation if it makes you feel better. Vacations interrupt the cycle of stress that can lead to being overwhelmed. They help us unwind so we can restore ourselves physically and mentally to a healthier place.

Triggered stress can lead to decreased creativity, memory problems and mild cognitive impairment. It’s simple. During your unwinding time and relaxation. Your body and mind rests and enjoys the stress-free environment, so going back to work with that mindset helps in making you more productive. You get to complete your tasks with a fresh new mindset. You get that one idea you were looking for or a new way to solve a problem you have been experiencing.

Breaks are not just for the holidays. Sometimes stress can be sneaky and if we do not realize it soon enough it will affect our work. This is where weekend getaways are a must, you don’t need to go to another place to unwind.

We can all agree that traveling can be expensive. If you are vacationing with children, then it’s not exactly stress-free. It won’t make sense to have an extended vacation that isn’t going to extend your happiness.

If you are not able to get that vacation time there are also many different ways you an unwind and feel relaxed. Some of these include yoga, meditation, starting a hobby, jogging, photography, or even gardening. You have to remember everyone is different so you must find something you enjoy doing.

How quickly can you run away from your problems? How often do you find yourself going off in the opposite direction? Running from the things that challenge us won’t help us.

Celebrate Success & Failure

It’s easy to acknowledge success because, unlike failure, they don’t wound the ego. In the space of entrepreneurship and career independence, there is a lot of personal investment into the general success of a business. Meeting goals, accomplishing milestones, and running past the finish line are the things that let us know when we are on the right track. Failure lets us know what we were unable to achieve. It may be easy to acknowledge a win and acknowledge the lessons from a failure, but it isn’t a natural human tendency to celebrate the times we fall.

Moving The Goalpost

Setting goals are important to establishing a pathway in life and business, but everyone struggles with maintaining the consistency of those goals. A system that is too rigid doesn’t allow for necessary changes to take place when circumstances change, but a relaxed system can make deadlines and goals too flexible. Maintaining a balance between the two seems difficult. While moving the goalpost can be seen as a negative because it allows for complacency, it also marks an ability to reevaluate priorities.
