Step Away to Avoid Burnout

Step Away to Avoid Burnout

When someone tells you to recharge your battery, how do you interpret it? In today’s increasingly digital office, you might misinterpret this statement as charging your laptop or smartphone, but in reality, we’re talking about your internal battery. If you constantly find yourself exhausted from your work, perhaps you should take some time to reevaluate priorities and destress a little bit.

When Should You “Recharge?”
A good rule to follow for unplugging yourself from the daily grind is whenever you find yourself to be either overwhelmed or exhausted from working too much or too hard. After all, no business professional can work as hard as possible for an extended period of time without taking a break. If you ever find yourself struggling to answer the question, “What is it all for?”, perhaps it’s time to take a break and unplug from the workplace for a little bit.

Here are three ways you can recharge your mental battery during a busy workday.

Get Out of the Office
Sometimes a breath of fresh air can go a long way. Some employees might skip lunch because they feel they are too busy to get all of their work done otherwise, but this can be a mistake. If you’re not taking a break every now and then, your ability to focus can be impaired. We recommend taking your lunch and using it to grab something to eat or get out of the office, whether it’s taking a walk down the road or going for a short drive. Try to separate yourself from the office during your breaks, even if it’s a little.

Exercise a Bit
If you think you are working a bit too hard, you can use something as basic as even a minor amount of exercise to get your blood pumping. Exercising can help improve focus and improve your health, so if it’s done regularly, you will be more comfortable in the workplace. Furthermore, you may find that you achieve better rest at the end of the day, sleeping more soundly while feeling stronger and more energetic as a whole.

Read More
There’s something inherently relaxing about reading a good book. Even if you’re not into reading, you might find that taking some time out of your day to read a story or learn something new can refresh your outlook on a new project or idea you have. That being said, not everything has to be about work 24/7; that’s not how you “recharge the battery,” so to speak. Even if it’s just something you enjoy, try reading a little bit here and there. You might be surprised by the results.

Be sure to prioritize your mental and physical health to ensure that you are prepared to meet your workplace responsibilities.
