High Risk for Burnout
You scored a high risk for burnout. Based on your score it is highly recommended that you take steps to reduce the stress in your life to prevent a total crash.Here are 3 key steps you can take to begin restoring your energy.1) Reduce stimulants, like caffeine, alcohol, and sugar. They ultimately create a net loss in energy, since they artificially spike blood sugar, followed by a crash. They can even trigger the stress response. These spikes and crashes require more energy than they create. Your body has to work hard to come back to homeostasis.2) Prioritize sleep. Have your last caffeine, if you’re still drinking it, by 2pm.Turn off screens an hour or two before bed and try to be asleep by 10pm.Create a dark, calm environment in your bedroom by using blackout curtains and minimizing artificial lights. Reserve your bedroom just for sleeping and relaxation – don’t bring work to bed.3) Streamline your schedule. If there’s something you can take off your plate, do it. Whether you eliminate it entirely or outsource it, clearing space is crucial. Very few things are worth burnout. Think about how much time and money it will cost if you do burnout, and that might make it easier to spend $25 on a laundry service or hire a cleaning professional for $100. 4) Prioritize self-care. Schedule time often to do nothing or something that brings you joy. Some examples are: walking in nature, listening to music or relaxing at TULA WELLNESS.
