Beat Burn-Out By Being the Best You


What is Burn-out?

The World Health Organisation recently described burn-out as;

“A syndrome conceptualised as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed”
— World Health Organisation

They characterised it by:

Feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion.

Increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job.

Reduced professional efficacy.

Burn-out refers specifically to phenomena in the occupational context and should not be applied to describe experiences in other areas of life.”

An on going cycle

When you’re going through burn-out you know that the feelings of exhaustion, negative thinking and lack of focus don’t stop once you leave work. It can feel like an endless cycle. It’s only natural to be under a certain amount of pressure as we need this to get ourselves up and out to work or to meet deadlines however, too much pressure and not releasing stress from our systems can eventually cause our bodies to breakdown, physically, psychologically or both.

So how do you beat burn-out?

How do you find your way back to an alert yet relaxed and happy state of clarity and mental sharpness?

How do you lift brain fog to a place of functionality and effectiveness?

Being the Best You

It takes input on your part, it involves a change in your thought process and a consistent approach to reducing your stress levels. By adopting a self development plan to beating burn-out you take control of your future wellness and create positive actions that not only help to restore good health but create habits that can prevent a repetition of feeling like a flat battery. 

The following tried and tested techniques may appear simple but are extremely effective and can, if used on a regular basis help to beat burn-out, propelling you to a healthier, happier, revitalised place.

Me- Time


How often do you hear yourself saying “I haven’t time” With work mounting, calls and emails coming in, daily pressures and demands can become such a burden that self development becomes the least of your priorities. Taking back control of your day by scheduling in time for yourself is vital for both your physical and psychological wellbeing.

Tip: Schedule in 30 minutes me –time. Include stretching exercises, a couple of minutes deep abdominal breathing, reading and reflecting. Spend time outdoors. Try sticking to your routine for 28 days to create good practice.

What have you just created?

Your thoughts, words, actions and deeds play a crucial part on your physical and psychological wellbeing.  Affirmations can be used to help manage stress levels. Affirmations are a string of positive words that have a beneficial affect on your energy system, the more positive your thoughts the more this trends your behaviour and overall levels of happiness. 

Tip: Create a positive affirmation to help you cope under pressure.

Do not react or allow yourself to be sucked into the whirlpool or turmoil

Salt Bath


Recall the last time you took a dip in the sea, how refreshing and revitalising did it feel? A natural way to “wash away” stress energy. Salt water is indeed a secret stress buster.

Tip: Recreate the therapeutic benefits of the sea in your bathroom by running a warm bath, swirl in a 1lb of salt, add a few drops of lavender oil, immerse and soak for 20 minutes. Rinse off and relax. 



It’s not about taking your foot off the pedal and going into a relaxed holiday mode. You may be surprised to know that specific advanced meditations can rapidly and effectively defrag your mind of unhelpful and unnecessary thoughts and emotions.

Water cooler chats. Let's talk physical, emotional and mental health.

Any back pain, tightness in your shoulders or bit of a stiff neck? Are you a headache sufferer? Do you constantly feel stressed, overwhelmed and anxious?

Be honest, what did you say the last time someone in the office asked "How are you? "

Did you say "I'm fine" 

Sound familiar? 

You would not be the only one chatting at the office water cooler, putting on a smile, pretending everything was great. Why can't we be honest, why can't we say, "well actually I ache from head to toe, I am not sleeping well and my head is all over the place"

Not wanting to let the team down, fear of failure and not being kind to ourselves all adds to the Oscar winning performances we put on everyday at work to cover up how we are really feeling.

Relax! The truth is out. It's time for some clear thinking.

Here's the situation.

Your Employer needs you to be physically, emotionally and mentally on top of your game, firing on all cylinders solving problems, efficient and productive, BUT to be productive and performing to the best of your ability you need to feel relaxed. We are not talking Barbados relaxed where you don't have the inclination to lift a finger, we mean the calm sleeping lion relaxed, alert and  ready to jump into action at the blink of an eye. Good health, physically, emotionally and mentally with a state of ready to go relaxed will  give you the mental clarity and focus needed to better  manage workloads and achieve targets and goals quickly. Your success through personal transformation can be very empowering.
