For those of you who are not aware of the Serenity Prayer allow me to introduce you to a very import part of it.

Tips for Preventing Burnout
Set boundaries: Learning how to say ‘NO’ will allow you not to over extend yourself or take on additional tasks that may cause you stress. Remember it is important to say ‘NO’ so you can have time for yourself or the tasks you would prefer to be doing.
Try to start the day with a meditation or by taking a few minutes to clear your mind and just breathe.
Eat healthy, exercise regularly and get good nights sleep. This will help with your mental health in general enabling you to manage life’s daily challenges better.
