Burnout is one of the top reasons so many women leave their jobs and quit their careers or transition away from the work they do. They just can’t take it any longer, they’re not happy.
And it’s silent… it creeps up on us.
Burnout shows up as exhaustion, overwhelm, anxiety, frustration, reduced efficacy, distancing, even anger, physical illness, and negativity. It can show up physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
In fact, in 2019, the World Health Organization officially recognized workplace burnout as an occupational circumstance caused by chronic work-related stress that has not been successfully managed.
And here is the thing… taking a pause, a vacation, going to the gym or doing yoga, even listening to a meditation APP may not be enough.
So, what do we do about it?
1. In the “always on” culture, it’s important to turn “off”. Especially as women! We are not wired to constantly perform, deliver, achieve, and “do”. Don’t get me wrong, we love to achieve, earn, and accomplish as high-value women. The KEY is to have balance.
2. Design your day. If you don’t plan your day, you’ll be constantly running in all directions, changing directions continually causing you to lose focus and feel overwhelmed.
3. Put yourself first. This is the mindset part that so many of my clients struggle with.
