When you’ve overworked yourself, you’re bound to feel the immense pain of burnout. Sensations of excessive tiredness, anxiety and much more are sure to come and stop you from being a fully-functional human being. 

Fortunately, Metroscene is here to guide you in dealing with burnout in this 5-point article. To find the peace and energy you once had, then keep reading! 

Recognize burnout

To begin healing from burnout, you must first learn to recognize it. To know if you’re suffering from burnout, ask yourself if you’re feeling well mentally, emotionally and physically. Since burnout affects these three aspects of yourself, should one or two of them not feel well, you’re definitely suffering from burnout. 

Some signs of burnout include: 

  • Loss of motivation

  • Intense tension in your muscles

  • General feelings of unhappiness

  • Doubt in your skills

  • Unable to be functional in even basic tasks

Should these signs be a daily presence in your life, then it’s likely you’re suffering from burnout. Fortunately, recognizing these signs is your first step to healing. 

Discover your triggers

The feelings of burnout are caused by a variety of triggers such as certain environments, people or situations. To help you overcome burnout, search for these triggers that affect you and avoid them as much as you can. 

Yes, these triggers can easily come to you, but avoiding them as much as possible helps you lessen the effects of burnout. 

Take some time for yourself

Burnout is caused by spending all your hours focused on just others’ needs and not your own. With this in mind, one of the best ways to deal with burnout is to take some time off and do the things you love to do. 

Once you start to enjoy your life and practice self-love, you’ll feel rejuvenated to take on whatever challenges await you. So if things are getting too hard for you, take some time off and enjoy doing the things that you love.

Practice Compassion

Since our society over glorifies the “grind mentality”, many of our generation overwork themselves to fit this mentality. Afterwards, when we feel the need to rest, guilt and shame overtake our minds since doing so won’t fulfil the “standard” working habits society has set. 

There’s no doubt about the excellence of overcoming your limits, however, practising compassion for yourself when you’re unable to do so is a must. In doing so, you remove the heavy, crushing weight of pressure lifted from your shoulders! 

Have a conversation with a therapist

A therapist is a mental health professional that can help you better understand what you’re going through. If you’d like to heal from burnout, ask a local therapist and they can help you recognize your conditions and handle these properly.
