Are you suffering from “Burnout” on the job? Actually, who isn’t in this economy? However, you could be REALLY suffering and not even be aware that you have a problem.
If you want to know for sure, ask yourself these questions:
- Are you more cynical, critical and sarcastic at work now days?
Have you lost your ability to experience joy or even crack a smile?
Do you have to drag yourself off to work and have trouble getting started once you arrive.
Have you become more irritable and less patient with co-workers, customers or clients?
If you answered YES to these questions, you are probably suffering from burnout, which could easily become depression.
So what can you do about it?
First, consider manifesting a miracle using a few powerful techniques:
Here are a few self-help suggestions:
Start your day with some high energy music. That might not sound like it will help, but it does. Research has shown that people who use high energy music to start their day and before they face challenging situations have increased productivity by as much as 200%! If I’m alone, I’ll even turn on the music and dance around a little to get my adrenalin going.
Stop thinking about the past. If you cant get over something that went wrong in your life, remember this quote: Do not blame yourself for past errors. You are no longer the same person who made them and you cannot blame a person who does not exist.
Put a humor board in your office. Laughter helps ease stress and bring mountains back down to mole hills where they belong. Learn to see humor in difficult situations. A good, hearty laugh is the best stress releaser of all.
Take a break or just slow down: Take inventory of your business, personal life, accomplishments and goals. Take the time to reflect and think. This revitalizes the mind and refreshes the spirit.
Remember to always take care of yourself. You only get one life (well, as far as we really know anyway. . .)
