3 Signs You’re Burning Out

According to a study by the Family and Work Institute, 89% of US employees agree somewhat or strongly that they never seem to have enough time to get everything done on the job. When the amount of work you need to do at work compounds with all the work you need to do in your personal life, this can lead to burnout.

Burnout can increase your risk of:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Type II diabetes
  • Male infertility
  • And other impacts on your health

There are 3 signs that you’re burning out:

1. You have a big emotional reaction to the little things

Your daughter gives you lip and it sends you into a fit of rage. Your boss sends you an email with some constructive criticism and it sends you into a panic. The little things that you can usually let roll off your back result in a big emotional reaction. This is one indicator that you’re burning out.

2. You’re having trouble sleeping

You have trouble falling a sleep, wake up during the night or wake up very early is another sign that you could be burning out. This leads to you feeling more tired and frazzled than you normally do.

3. You Feel Like You’re Not Getting Enough Done

The final sign you’re burning out is that you feel you’re not getting enough done at work or at home. You might feel like you’re not as productive as your peers or you aren’t working hard enough.

The Good News?

You can overcome burnout. Overcoming burnout is about learning to:

1. Say NO things that drain you
2. Say YES to things that give you energy

That’s exactly why I created this checklist that gives you four simple steps to SAY YES to things that give you energy. These 3 simple steps will help you to get your time and your energy back!

Yes, I want to overcome burnout!!

Hope you’re having a restful weekend,

I work with big hearted people who want to make a positive impact in the world. The only problem is: -Your career isn’t working -You wake up some days and don’t want to get out of bed -You’re stressed about paying the bills Career Coaching in the Forest teaches you how to make small shifts that will free up tons of energy for the things you really love. A life where you wake up to feeling a sense of purpose and easily pay the bills. I teach you how to approach making a career change in a way that is fun, easy and gets results :). I have over a decade of experience in the field of education and during my four years at an educational non-profit I hired enough contract staff to know what employers want and DON’T WANT in the job application process. So why did I start this? When I was 24, I was overwhelmed by my job working with vulnerable youth and fell apart. I moved to a yoga centre for 2 years to put myself back together. There I figured out what I was messing up at work and became a yoga and meditation teacher. Career Coaching in the Forest will help you to see the mistakes you’re making without having to move to a yoga centre! And use meditative practices to help you see where you need to go. I know exactly what it feels when something’s not right in your career and now I love helping others to make changes so their lives can become full of meaning and purpose again and so that you can make lots money too ;).
