How To Break The Cycle Of Burnout
By Christopher Ruane
Formerly the word "burn out is used to describe busted electric bulbs. Somehow, the word burnout came to origin and is now also used to describe emotional drain in humans. For light bulbs, it is irreversible. In humans, this is only temporary. Self-help remedies are readily available to get us out of this predicament.
Consider following these tips:
1.Take time out to savor the fresh scent of nature, especially flowers. The sight and fragrance that flowers bring can be great relief to a tired, irritated, or dragged feeling. If you love nature, nothing is more invigorating than flowers and plants. They represent nature in its true essence.Have you heard of the Bach flower remedies ?
2.Examine if your burnout is a result of doing something you don't like to do, yet you have to face it just the same. In such cases, picture in your mind an image that you like to do and substitute this image to the thing you don't like to do. Somehow, this strategy of imagery helps to lessen the tiring weight of the thing you despise to act upon.
In the process, your task gets done with less resistance on your part and it would even probably reach the point that you would enjoy doing it. Before you even know it, the job is already done and probably with favorable results.
3.Ginseng is an energy food. Most health food stores sell it. You can either take it as a tea drink or mix it in your cooking for a wholesome meal. Ginseng comes in a variety of strengths. The more potent it is, the better your physical (and mental) performance will be. If you're not very familiar with it, just ask your health food store representative and they will gladly help you out.
4.Take time out to regain your composure. A burnout can be equated to an individual who could use a time out from the hustles of life. This is similar to a coach of a basketball team asking for a time out to come up with a winning game plan when his team is not playing at its peak. Take advantage of this time out to meditate and relax those frenzied nerves.
5.Take time out to empty your mind. Pick up and round up useful memories and discard those damaging emotions and negative thoughts.
6.Discover a newfound freedom, free from emotional drain. Go on a picnic with the family, a camping trip out in the woods, or a weekend excursion to a totally different environment.
7.Listen to relaxing music. It lifts us emotionally. You may want to choose specific sounds that can relieve a person from burnout like soft Classical melodies.
8.Indulge. It's quite common to hear from somebody: "I just want to get home and soak myself in a bathtub." Quite true, this can help overcome burnout. Better yet, go to a spa where you can get a treatment package from massage to whirlpool baths.
