Everyone wishes they could make stress disappear with the snap of a finger. Unfortunately, not all of us have the power of the Infinity Gauntlet.
Burnout is a gradual process. Likewise, prevention works the same way. Here are a few simple tips for managing stress and self-care.
1. Check-in with yourself
Set a reminder in your calendar or take a few minutes before your meals to self assess.
How are you feeling? Are you overwhelmed? Are you exhausted from a lack of sleep? Are you anxious about your upcoming meeting?
It’s important to practice mindfulness so that you can fully address your needs.
2. Be your most important client
In life, work, and school, you’re constantly trying to cater to the needs of others whether it’s your boss, mother-in-law, or teammate. Masha Malka from the One Minute Coach conveys an important message: keep yourself first in line.
Your 30-minute coffee break or yoga session might not have answered any emails, but it’ll boost your productivity in the long term.
3. Practice consistency
The key to preventing burnout is to practice self-care on a regular basis. Make daily reminders in your calendar to go for a walk during work or schedule a weekly Sunday brunch to grab food with a friend. The more convenient something is, you’re more likely to do it!
