“Burnout is not afraid of playing the long game. To prevent burnout, we need to play a long game, too.” ― Sally Clarke
You’ve probably been there, you’re a visionary and you have big plans for your business…BUT NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY! You find yourself overworking to make your business grow. You’re exhausted, yet not sleeping. More emotional than usual, maybe overeating or leaning on alcohol. It feels like you are spinning and your business is out of control.
Hunter says it’s important to come back to ourselves and our bodies by:
- Journal and meditate
- Let your values guide you
- Ask for help
And, hey, if burnout has got you down, it’s not the end of the world!
Here are some tips for recovery:
- Get to know yourself through personality assessments to better understand what led to this moment.
- Let go of the “shoulds”
Like Hunter says, there are no rules and “shoulds” when it comes to developing your business. So let that pressure go and move forward with you in mind!
Take the first step to valuing your needs and listen now!
