Tips on Avoiding Burnout

1. Accept the fact that God cares about every aspect of your life and He supplies grace for it all.

2. Do not take on too much. Most of the time, we know what we can realistically handle.

3. Practice saying the magical two letter word, “No”. You do not have to be involved in every project that happens by. Do not feel guilty if you have to turn down some stuff.

4. Strive for a life of balance with work, home life, church activities, play.

5. Rest is not an option. Vacations, staycations, short getaways, spa days, downtime : these are all necessary. Everyone should have at least a day off in a week where you can rest from your work. If God rested , so can you.

6. You feel most fulfilled when you are helping others rather than just running about frenetically chasing activities for their own sake

7. Set boundaries. For instance, no phone calls during dinner; or every day when I come home from work I will relax in my room for thirty minutes; or every three months, my wife and I will go on vacation for 4 days.

8. Do not let circumstances control your joy.

Well, that’s all folks! Have a great day!
