Create structure and boundaries for work, to separate your professional time and protect your personal time. Create a routine that allows you to mentally detach from work at the end of the day too.
Keep an open dialogue with your line manager about how you are feeling. Talk to them about how you can adjust your workload, so you can better manage the demands of the day.
Whether it’s something simple like walking the dog in the fresh air, or cooking up a storm in the kitchen, making time for yourself is important.
Burnout doesn’t suddenly appear - it’s a gradual process. Take time to check in with yourself on a regular basis to understand how you are feeling and if it’s time to address any concerns.
Being able to recognise that you are feeling overwhelmed or burnt out is the first step in addressing the problem. In order to overcome these experiences, try making changes to your workload and habits rather than working harder and pushing the feelings to the back of your mind.
