Is Your Enthusiasm For Work Flickering Out? Reignite the Flame! Part 1
Are your coworkers under so much pressure they’re erupting like volcanoes? Do you see people around you turning into pessimists? Are they waiting for the overwhelming situations to just go away?
Burnout is a general erosion of the spirit. It occurs when its victims have been worn out physically and emotionally as a result of long term stress … However, burnout is also a time for deep reflection to make major changes.
10 TIPS TO KEEP THE FLAME BURNING
It took us a long time to form these negative habits, so it may take some time to make life changing choices. These ideas will take you back to the basics. Find the one idea that “speaks to you” and take some action. Are you ready?
1. Find a hobby.
Talk to people who have achieved balance in their lives and find out what activities they’ve added to enrich their lives. What activities have you wanted to experience? Now is the time to discover them – not when you retire.
2. Take a class for fun in order to add something different to your life.
A benefit from taking a new class is that you will meet people who have the same interests as you. If you are thinking that you don’t have the time, ask yourself…”If not now, then when?”
3. Volunteer for a cause that means something to you.
I hear many success stories of people finding new opportunities after they give their time and attention to others. Studies show that people tend to be happier when they help others.
4. Eat right and exercise.
Do these for the right reasons. Find a nutritionist or health coach who will support you to make behavioral changes that are stopping you from feeling as good as you can. It usually takes only a few sessions.
I don’t mean hide. Your body may need some extra time to heal. So take the time, just don’t use it as an excuse to stay away from others.
Look for the next five tips on how to reignite your passion for work in Part 2.
