4 Ways to Avoid Burnout in Lock Down
Paying Yourself First.
I was working with a client this past week, helping her comeback from burnout. An amazing Mum of 2 who works in a big corporate role - exhausted from years of juggling it all (who can relate?!!).
In a couple short weeks of 1:1 coaching together she started to see and feel shifts happening in her life.
Like each of my private clients we began with a 7-Day Mindset Detox.
A method I use to pattern interrupt and break old habits no long working, to bring in new fresh ideas that recharge your energy. Packaged in an easy-to-follow step by step morning and evening routine.
We chatted about what the real turning point was for her, and she realised that…
"When I wake up and 'Pay Myself First' then I don't feel so depleted".
I loved this analogy so much because I know that how you begin your day actually has a flow on effect to the rest of your day!
Q: Are you paying yourself FIRST?
Or are you waking up reacting and responding to everyone and everything around you? WORK, emails and notifications, the KIDS, the DOG – do all of their needs come first?
What about your needs? Are you giving all day, and not replenishing?
You see, when you pay yourself FIRST you create a magical buffer of time in the morning just for YOU (and only YOU!).
And a few amazing things happen:
Committing to pay yourself first is about filling your energy tank BEFORE anything else.
It is one of the key ways of preventing burnout in lock down. Here are the rest of my golden rules, learnt the hard way, through 6 lock downs )and 2 border lock outs)!
1. Pay yourself first
2. Nourish your body
3. Stop overworking
4. Get outside
I did a poll last week on my Instagram checking in with my beautiful community in lock down. A staggering 72% of women who replied said they were NOT getting outside EVER DAY!
Take care out there, be kind to yourself (and others!).
We are all just doing the best we can.
