We all know what burnout feels like. It’s a state of physical and emotional exhaustion where you’ve simply “had enough”. The key is to spot the signs and take action. To get out of your slump, all you have to do is make a few little changes to dig up that lost motivation. But how? Let’s find out!
If you want to get revved up for work, set some personal incentives. For example, schedule something nice after work, like meeting a friend or playing your favourite sport. Also, try to challenge yourself and set deadlines for each task. Keep reminding yourself why you’re doing the work in the first place and stay positive!
MIX IT UP
Have you ever considered it might be time to switch up your routine? A change to the structure of your days can give you a massive boost in motivation. Try to do your day-to-day tasks in a different order and explore how members of your team get work done. When you make a change to your workflow, you force your brain to pay attention to these new habits. Routines run dry after a while, so create new habits to spark your motivation.
CREATE A TO-DO LIST EVERY DAY
If you’re prone to falling behind at work, having a to-do list can help you stay on track. If you physically write down your goals for the day, you’ll be more motivated to complete them. A to-do list gets you organised and improves your focus. It only takes two minutes to write out a list of to-dos and there’s no better feeling than ticking off a completed task.
CELEBRATE SMALL WINS
You need to celebrate all the wins in your life! No matter how little the wins are, you should reward yourself for all the good things you’re doing at work. A feeling of progress and achievement in the is crucial. Waiting purely for long-term pays offs will drive you insane. So, try to focus on the amazing things you’re bringing to the table right now.
This is a big one. To avoid completing burning away all of your mental energy, you need to take regular breaks. As soon as you feel tired, step away from your desk to give your brain a rest. For most of us, we get one hour-long break at work, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still take regular intervals throughout the day. Go for a quick walk, grab some snacks or make or call. Whatever you do, make sure you get moving!
