My Secrets to Avoiding Burnout
Entrepreneurial burnout is a real thing, but I have a few secrets to avoid it!
Last week, most of my family was sick including me. It started with my little one, who then gave it to the big one, who gave it to me. Long story short I decided to do something different than I normally would, and it was a big win for me. I think that as entrepreneurs, this is something that we need to pay attention to. I would normally push through it and continue to work, and the sickness would just end up getting worse and lasting for weeks or months. It was miserable.
This time around, I decided that I was going to cancel all my calls for the day and just take some time to relax. I binge-watched a ton of Netflix, read half a book, watched some Game of Thrones, and still had the nanny come to watch the kids so that I could take time alone. I finally, completely, 100% relaxed. A really big part of avoiding burnout and stopping it before it happens is listening to your body.
