Focus on the future
Don’t just focus on the problems, think about what you would like to be, what you would like to achieve, do or see, and start to work to develop what you need to achieve those goals. This allows you to focus on the positive and what you can do, rather than what is beyond your control.
Dare to make important decisions
If the burnout stems from your work, for example, you must not only identify the causes, but also decide if the problems are solvable and, if they are not, you have to dare to make the decision to look for something different and change. Because not everyone is going to adapt to what you want, but you can always find something you like and make you feel better.
You can’t do it all alone, trying to do too much alone will leave you exhaustedThat’s why it’s important to surround yourself with the right people and learn to ask for help when you need it.
Diversify your time
Mental exhaustion can be linked to an overly closed routine, where you do the exact same thing all the time. Focusing only on work can be exhausting. It is therefore important to set aside time to do what you love, to go outside (with the 20-5-3 rule for mental health) or for a hobby that helps you relax and clear your head.
