     Cure Your Burnout

Do you ever get those Sunday night blues? DREADING the week ahead, feeling the daily grind just draining away all of your energy before the week even starts? Or what about those days where you just feel like you are going through the motions and not really being present in your own life? Weíve all been there Ė- burned out. Here are some ideas for AVOIDING burnout in the first place:

Enroll in a class or learn a new SKILL related to your field. Doing something new and out of the ordinary can be a great energizer. Donít have the budget for training? Check out www.teleclass.com many of their offerings are FREE.

Change your ROUTINE. Try doing your usual morning activities in the afternoon and vice versa. This simple change can make a big difference.

If you were working at a corporate office youíd be rewarded with overtime pay or comparable time off from work when you put in a lot of EXTRA hours. Be sure to do this for yourself. Schedule an afternoon to go to the zoo or meet a friend for lunch. Youíll find when you are refreshed you work much more effectively. Iím sure youíve heard this many times, but be sure you actually do it.

Hate paying bills? Despise returning phone calls? Then why do it? OUTSOURCE those tasks that really drag you down and keep you from doing the activities you enjoy. Consider hiring a virtual assistant or even a college student who is looking for some extra money doing clerical tasks.

A major cause of burnout is feeling like your hard work is not being recognized or APPRECIATED. If you work at home and are your own boss, you may not be getting the kudos you deserve. When you land a big client, treat yourself to a professional massage or dinner at a nice restaurant. When you do something significant, print out a certificate of achievement for yourself and display it where you can see it.

Donít allow yourself to be a burnout victim! Take ACTION today to prevent or treat your burnout -- both you and your business will benefit.
