Burnout Prevention Strategies
6/23/2007 - Hilary Drummond and Anita Bakker, Southern Exposure Weekend

Do you wake up on Monday morning looking forward to going to work, or do you remember what day it is and lose your excitement?

 

With the increased demands in the work place it is becoming more and more likely that you will experience some level of “burn-out”.  Think about the phrase “burn-out”.  It suggests that like an engine or a light bulb our energy is depleted!  We need to pay attention and manage ourselves better before that energy really is completely all used up. 

 

Here’s a scenario you might relate to. 

For the most part you usually like your work.  The people are great but you are finding yourself increasingly frustrated by the politics and hidden agendas. It seems that you are walking through a workplace minefield.  There is a sense of dread at the thought of Monday mornings.  One day you realize that that you feel physically ill at work.  You might notice that you are looking for escapes to “hideaway” and deal with your frequent headaches, heartburn or sick stomach.  You might notice that this doesn’t happen at home, and you come to the realization that your work is actually making you sick.

 

Sound familiar? You may have the option of changing jobs, however ultimately there is going to be stress wherever you work, so why not learn to manage it better?

 

Here’s a start on some work-stress strategies:

  • Awareness.  Get to know what the underlying cause of the stress is.  Is it really a workload issue or perhaps it’s a communication breakdown or a values conflict?
  • Assess what is on your plate.  Determine what you can let go of and what you might need to delegate or get help with?
  • Access support.  Some people find it difficult to ask for help, but creating collaborative relationships at work can develop into a powerful support network for yourself and others.
  • Re-charge and regenerate.  Find some time for yourself everyday to ensure proper nutrition, rest, exercise and some true enjoyment.

 

What one thing could you start doing right now that would make a difference to how you feel at work?

 

Share your stress management strategies with us…we’ll pass them on.
