4 signs that you're burning out:

  1. You’re exhausted all the time. Even after a good night’s sleep, you wake up feeling tired and drained. You may also find it difficult to focus and concentrate.
  2. You’re irritable and cynical. You’re more likely to snap at people and lose your patience. You may also have a negative outlook on life and work.
  3. You’re withdrawing from social activities. You’re no longer interested in spending time with friends and family, or doing things that you used to enjoy.
  4. You’re neglecting your health. You may be skipping meals, not exercising, or sleeping less than usual.

Here are some tips for preventing and recovering from burnout:

  • Set realistic expectations for yourself. Don’t try to do too much at once, and be willing to say no to new commitments.
  • Take breaks throughout the day. Get up and move around, or step outside for some fresh air.
  • Make time for activities that you enjoy. This could include spending time with loved ones, pursuing hobbies, or simply relaxing.
  • Take care of your physical health. Eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and get enough sleep.
  • Seek professional help if needed. A therapist can help you to identify and address the root causes of your burnout, and develop coping mechanisms.
