Burnout is very real.
In case you weren't aware. And it's not uncommon - turns out nearly 30% of workers have "high" or "unsustainably high" stress levels at work.
Now, stress itself is not a bad thing. Stress can be a great motivator. But when it's so great that it incapacitates you (or lowers your productivity and wellbeing in general), then it's a problem.
So we ranked the top ways to combat burnout - using a practice called "mental health first aid"
(no, it doesn't involve quitting your job)
Similar to first aid for physical injuries, mental health first aid is a set of practices that are quick, easy to implement, and can be done almost anywhere.
When you hit a wall at work (mental block or otherwise), getting back to "normal" is the first step. Only then can you look at the deeper issues and make a sound decision.
So if you're feeling like work turned from healthy stress to pressure cooker (or, let's be honest, if your boss is being an ass), these tips may help you get back on track.
