It’s Possible to Avoid Burnout in a Fast-Paced Workplace. Here’s How.
“Burnout is an occupational hazard in my field and except in the case of vacation, I have to be available when needed after hours. My solution is to start each morning focused on recharging activities, like listening to a meditative recording, journaling, or exercising before heading into work so I arrive feeling more energetic and ready for the day. I also intentionally balance intense work sprints with a regular day off to recharge, rather than wait for an official vacation a couple of times a year, and encourage my employees to do the same. Those strategies reinforce my well-being while keeping me highly productive!” — Shira Miller, chief communications officer, Atlanta, GA
