A topic came up for me just today with a client who wonders if she is burned out. I honestly think, if you're asking the question, you probably are – at least a little crispy around the edges.
I was reminded of this blog post by Derek Halpern over at Social Triggers, he wrote about how to tell if you're burned out.
He actually gives us a few questions to answer, nine to be exactly.
Three of them are:
Are you exhausted all the time?
Do you feel more anxious about your business than you used to?
Do you feel overwhelmed and indecisive?
I love how he gives ideas for breaking through burnout, of which there are six:
- Notice (and Admit) It Early
- Commit to Making a Change
- Give Yourself Some Room To Breathe
- Connect With Others
- Make Life Easy
- Fuel Your Passion
Derek gives thoughtful advice for each one – it's really meaty post, so go dig in and enjoy!
