7 Tips to Prevent BurnoutAs we head into a post pandemic time in our nation, it is easy to forget to take care of ourselves. We hope these tips can help prevent workplace burnout, and help you stay in the flow!

Set Boundaries

Above all else, do not overcommit yourself. Learn how to gracefully say no.

Try saying:

  • "I am not taking on anything else right now."
  • "I am honored you thought of me, but I can't."
  • "Any new yes I give means a no to something else, so I have to decline." 

Prioritize tasks

Focus on the tasks that require you immediate attention and those which cannot be overlooked. Then take pride in finishing them well. The tasks that are less important will need to wait, or can be delegated.


Have a candid conversation with your teammates and supervisors to pass off tasks. Hand off those remedial tasks that can be done quickly, and those tasks that don't require your specific attention.

Maintain a work/life balance

Start prioritizing a work/life balance which means once you leave work, focus all your energies on relaxing and recharging.

Get restful sleep everyday

Make sleep a priority again. Go to sleep and wake at the same time every day to ensure you are getting a restful sleep.

Exercise in the sunshine

Physical activitiy, especially in the sunshine can help to recharge your sould and give you a more positive outlook. Don't forget to hydrate!

Do what makes you happy

If that's reading a book, going to your kid's soccer game, taking a long walk with a friend, or swimming laps at a local pool. Anything that makes you smile and helps you to feel rejuvenated.
