5 Top Tips To Put a Spring In Your Step Following Stress Burnout

1) Indulge in your passion!

What are you good at? What inspires or excites you? You may be at a stage in your life where you’re unsure of your true passion, but this is by no means negative, as this small journey of self-discovery can itself can be one of the most exciting! Are you adventurous? A people person? Creative, or more of an introvert? Studies indicate that following your passion is proven to motivate you and you may not realise but the humblest of interests can be turned into a constructive hobby, pastime – or in some cases – even a career. Engaging with the things that make you tick is ultimately great for your well-being, so be sure to take time out to find and to do what you love!

2) Work towards simple goals

Is there something you’re saving up for? A task you’re aiming for in the workplace, or are you just trying to make time for that bit of exercise you can never seem to fit in? Whatever your goal, keep positive and focus on taking steps to take  yourself just one extra bit further, even if it’s just once a week! Self belief is a fantastic confidence and motivation booster: overcoming a small apprehension or can have big rewards. And: the more confident you get about yourself, the easier it will get to see difficult tasks more as a challenge than a source of stress.

3) Reward yourself

Don’t be afraid to allow yourself some ‘me’ time. Life is short so take time out of your day-to-day roles and responsibilities to do the things that make you happy. What do you look forward to during your day? Settling down to a good book? Indulging in a bubble bath? Being creative or thoughtful? Indulging in simple pleasures can be gratifying so reward yourself following an eventful period, busy day or small personal accomplishment.

4) Strive for balance

Everything in moderation is a great mantra to live by and it can extend to more than just your diet.
If you’ve worked yourself hard mentally, try a bit of physical exercise as relief, or vice-versa. Equally if you feel you may have overindulged too much of late and are feeling sluggish, dedicate a week to being more active and healthy. Ultimately it’s not about perfection, but maintaining that ‘happy medium’. Too much of any one thing can create dissatisfaction and stress, so strive for balance across the board.

5) Know your limits, know yourself!

The more you accept your strengths and weaknesses, the more you’ll learn about yourself; this paves the way to growing as a person. Avoid comparisons and never measure yourself against goals or expectations that are unrealistic.  Instead look towards small objectives that you know are within your reach if you put your mind to it. Be aware that being true to yourself is a first step in gaining confidence and ultimately, satisfaction. Overall, knowing your mind and body is crucial for maintaining your happiness and general sense of wellbeing so always do what you feel is right for you.
