How to Overcome Burnout

If you feel ‘burnout’ setting in, if you feel demoralized or exhausted, it is best, for the safety of everyone, to withdraw and restore yourself.

My clients are women executives who have always juggled it all…careers, family, friendships and self-care. 

Now, in the Covid world, they are juggling the school day alongside their workday.  They are trying to plan three healthy meals a day and trying to squeeze in time to prep and cook them.  They already juggle the politics of male-dominated workplaces – add to that the polarization of a political season and they feel pressed on every side. 

Many have let their self-care slip for the sake of giving more of themselves to other areas of their lives and this hasn’t been met with better results.  In fact, they are feeling more overwhelmed, burned out and exhausted than ever before.  It’s time to take a deep breath in and let out that heavy sigh.  This week, as I’ve coached these women, I’ve reminded them that this weekend, we get an extra hour and we can use that to our advantage to do something for ourselves.  Schedule that hour in to get back to something you love.  Maybe the self-care you enjoy is physical in the form of yoga.  Schedule that yoga time this weekend.  Maybe it’s emotional self-care of dinner around the table with family.  Make it happen and enlist your tribe to help you meal prep or order in.  Maybe you love intellectual self-care and haven’t picked up a book in a while.  What’s the next book on your reading list?  Go get it and find a quiet place to read for an hour.  Maybe you love your spiritual self-care of starting your day with devotions and prayer.  Carve out that time for yourself.  And, as the hour wraps up, set a goal for the week ahead of weaving in 10 minutes of self-care for yourself.
