“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.” – Bob Moawad

Tips for Preventing Burnout!

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.

Ban technology for at least an hour every day. Switch of your PC, Laptop, phones and communication devices. Allow yourself to disengage completely.  

Take up a hobby, something that you will enjoy and look forward to doing.

Why not try something you have always wanted to do but never gotten around too? Or return to that kickboxing class?

Connecting with nature and being creative can be very therapeutic. Allow yourself to be creative in any form that works for you. Painting, drawing, kitting, writing songs, poems etc..
