Practical Ways To Prevent “Burn Out” In Your Life

March 14, 2008

Over these years of my training and consultation, I’ve worked with many people who admit that there had been times where they were on the verge of breaking down and burning out. These feelings of pushing beyond limits usually stem from the pressures of life and the high demands of oneself.

Listed below are some of the practical things you can do to prevent burn out from happening:

1. You must first insist that maintaining balance in your life is a priority.

2. If things get too stressed up, talk it out. Share with a current friend, a respected, trusted person.

3. There are always hotlines you can call up if you want to share or discuss anonymously. Some people do prefer relating to a neutral party or a stranger on the other line.

4. Make a new friend. You can also gain new perspectives as you communicate with that acquaintance. However, have a positive friend instead of one with negative emotional burden.

5. Practice instant relaxation of your physical muscles. Simple movements of swinging, swaying or stretching will do wonders too.

6. For emotional aspects, visualize the fulfillment of positive goals and enriching environment. Meditate on calmer thoughts.

7. Insist on cutting down certain demanding factors in your life.

8. Remember what keeps you on track in life. Review through your inner motivations. Hold on to these keys and allowing them to inspire you.

9. Learn to let go of the small things. To take it further, letting go of past major trespasses is an even greater virtue.

10. Allow the media to help you take your mind off. A funny movie coupled with cheerily music always cheers a person up.

Do take time to run through these ways, applying them as soon as you can and as often as possible. You’ll find that renewed vigor will spur you towards Excelling Beyond Excellence!
