How to Avoid Career Burnout Webinar Resources



Stress is an inevitable part of life. We experience stress at work, at home, and in our daily commutes. Here are a few things you can do when you feel stressed:


Stress Relievers


  • Take a walk during your lunch break. If you work at home, take frequent breaks and get fresh air

  • Practice breathing exercises

  • Journal your feelings

  • Take a bath or go for a swim

  • Use a stress ball

  • Have a spa day

  • Quit Your Job (if you are overly stressed and unable to relieve the stress)

  • Spend time more time with friends and family that you enjoy

  • Create a work cut off time. Don’t answer work emails or phone calls after the workday ends.

  • Unplug from your phone. Refrain from checking your cellphone for at least one hour after you wake up and turn off your phone 1-2 hours before you go to sleep.

  • Get real about self-induced stressed! Most stress is self-inflicted. Work to change your mindset around urgent versus non-urgent matters. Use an Eisenhower Matrix to keep yourself on track with things that matter the most.

  • Start a stress-free hobby

  • Take a weekend trip

  • Delegate tasks to coworkers at work and to family members at home. Build a team of supporters


Often times career burnout is a result of feeling unfulfilled at work. Here are a few things you can do make work a little more engaging:


Level Up At Work


  • Transition into a position within your company

  • Find new employment

  • Speak with your manager or supervisor about incorporating a preferred job role in your current position

  • Ask for a schedule change (starter later or leave earlier)

  • Negotiate work from home days

  • Find a mentor at work or within your industry to have regular check-in with


If you are beyond the point of feeling stressed and unfulfilled at work, there may be a deeper problem that you should address immediately. Here are a few ways to get over the workday slump:


Depressed, sluggish, or lethargic?


  • Join a gym and workout regularly

  • Eat healthy food (mostly lean meats, fish, veggies, fruits, and grains)

  • Try vitamins

  • Speak with a healthcare professional

  • Delegate task and use assisted technology when needed
