Are You in Danger of Burning Out?

Got this as a forward.

If you feel that you are in danger of burning out, the suggestions below can help you correct the situation:
  • Re-evaluate your goals and prioritize them
  • Evaluate the demands placed on you and see how they fit in with your goals
  • Identify your ability to comfortably meet these demands.
  • If people demand too much emotional energy, become more unapproachable and less sympathetic. Involve other people in a supportive role. Acknowledge your own humanity: remember that you have a right to pleasure and a right to relaxation
  • Learn stress management skills
  • Identify stressors in your life, such as work, or family. Get the support of your friends, family and even counseling in reducing stress
  • Develop alternative activities such as a relaxing hobby to take your mind off problems
  • Ensure that you are following a healthy lifestyle:
1. Get adequate sleep and rest to maintain your energy levels
2. Ensure that you are eating a healthy, balanced diet—bad diet can make you ill or feel bad. Limit your caffeine and alcohol intake
3. Try to recognize your spiritual needs that may have been buried under the mires of worldly pursuits
