  • Burnt Out From Work? Here’s What You Can Do

    exercise-career-burnout

    If you've been at the same job for a while now, chances are you've suffered from job burnout, a type of stress even Mayo Clinic is recognizing. Job burnout is different from simply disliking the career you've chosen. Its symptoms include lack of motivation, irritability, exhaustion, lack of satisfaction.

    Although the reasons we feel burned out at work vary from person to person and job to job, some common culprits include feeling out of control at work. For example, having little or no say over your schedule or assignments, or having a micromanager as a boss can be triggers. When you're spending so much of your day at work, that it feels like there's never enough time or energy to be with your family and friends doing activities that you enjoy, that's when burnout sets in.

    Once burnout sets in, you might realize that it's time for a new job. Maybe you've been feeling this way for too long and the fact is, you just don't like the work you're doing. But if you remember the days you actually enjoyed going to work, and aren't ready to give up yet, keep reading. It might take some hard work, but you can defeat the burnout.

    One of the main solutions is nurturing yourself, physically and mentally. If you're not getting what you want out of your job, figure out what it is that you do want and then speak up about it. Maintaining a balance between work life and home life is extremely important. Don't take your work home with you. Home is for family time and some "me time," too. Don't let your hobbies be forgotten. You can do anything - something that relaxes you completely, or something that keeps you busy and makes you feel helpful. A lot of the time, we come home from work and just want to lounge around after feeling stressed out all day. But physical activity plays an important role in so many parts of your life. It gives you more energy, helps you sleep better, and makes you look better, which in turn makes you feel better. Just remember, it's up to you to de-stress and improve your well-being.
