There’s tired, and then there’s exhausted. Perhaps you’ve been there – so stressed and fatigued from deadlines and demands that it’s hard to focus, even to the point that you just don’t feel like yourself. Burnout can happen to anyone, but you don’t have to let it rob you of your rest and focus. If you feel that you’ve reached burnout, try these tips to rekindle your mental energy.

Schedule Rest

While staying on top of your tasks is valuable at work, you still need to take time to recharge. If you don’t get enough rest, you won’t be able to perform to the best of your ability, and beyond work, sufficient rest is essential for your wellbeing. Block some time on your schedule each day to relax, and give yourself a set time after work where the laptop shuts down so that you can get enough sleep and time to yourself.

Move Around

Physical activity can do wonders for your outlook. You might not always feel like getting up and hitting the gym, but if you can work in a little exercise free from screens, you can give yourself some mental space while getting the blood pumping. Some fresh air may be in order, so consider stepping out to go for regular walks on a scenic trail. Getting out into nature is a great way to unplug, and it’s an opportunity to let your mind wander away from stressors and relax.

Write It Down

When you’re feeling burned out, it can be hard to focus or recall important information. That’s why it helps to take notes and jot things down if you know you’ll need that info later. Writing your notes by hand – not typing them on a laptop – can also help you retain that info better. Outside of meetings and reminders, it also helps to keep a journal, logging the day’s experience and compartmentalizing your thoughts. Reflecting on the day’s events can also help you focus on anything that went well, allowing for a more positive outlook.
