Working from home is not the walk-in-the-park many imagine it to be. There are still deadlines that need to be met, quotas to fill, and customers to please. Burnout happens at home too.
Burnout is when you are constantly stressed to the point that you feel tired, don’t care about your work, complain about your job, and your work performance is suffering.
Everyone reacts to stress differently. Recognizing your individual responses to pressure is key.
Pay attention to encroaching deadlines and get a jump start on important assignments so you don’t have to work under pressure later.
When your workload is out of hand, try making a to-do list of what you need to have completed in order of importance.
If you start to feel stressed, sometimes taking a short break is perfect for recentering yourself.
Try deep breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation, visualization, and meditation, aromatherapy, chair yoga, or massage.
