Understanding burnout

The main reason for being burnout isn’t necessarily being overworked. It can also come from being under-challenged. 

Burnout is chronic workplace stress that can result in feelings of being drained and being increasingly disengaged and cynical about your work.

Burnout and your free time

Burnout and your free time

When you are experiencing burnout from the stress of your job, you can forget what time off is supposed to feel like. 

You can even develop bad habits on the weekend that are making you feel even more drained and overwhelmed on Monday morning.

Living too much for the weekend

Living too much for the weekend

When people split their week up and start thinking of work as bad and the weekend as all good, that contributes to the problem.

Bring your weekend into your week, and find engagement elsewhere: if that's when you connect with friends and family, find a way to make it a part of your workdays as well. Also, choose to engage during your free days with activities such as volunteering, arts or even starting a side hustle.

Venting about work all the time

Venting about work all the time

Constantly complaining about your terrible colleagues and your boss on the weekend can feel like a stress release in the moment, but in the long-run, this rumination can make you feel even worse.

Gain self-awareness and reframe your thinking“What can I do about this?” or "How can I learn from this going forward?" are good questions to use.

Not engaging with the world

Not engaging with the world

When you’re experiencing burnout, your tunnel vision of work, work, work can lead to trouble engaging in the world outside of it on the weekends.

Be intentional. This doesn’t mean you can’t relax on your couch and watch movies, but be thoughtful about this plan.

Technology controls you

Technology controls you

When your phone is nearby, you may find yourself checking email apps and work notifications mindlessly to check in.

First, recognize where this need to be available may be coming from. Then create boundaries about when you’re available, and share those expectations. Even if you need to be reachable, you can be intentional about how much work you allow to take up your weekend.

Take responsibility

Take responsibility

Burnout is not always your problem, but you should feel empowered to change what you can.

When you trace your burnout to a systemic toxic source, you need to decide whether staying at this job outweighs what it is doing to your mental health.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
