Tip 1 - Rest and Recover

Burnout is a serious condition which has built up over time and is caused by ongoing stress. This may be stress from work or family or financial or a combination of a number of chronic stressors. It needs time for you to heal from.

Best thing to do is to take time off and rest. Reflect on the things that are important and what you can let go of.

Tip 2 - Life is all about balance

Life is all about balance.
You don't always need to be getting stuff done. Sometimes it's perfectly okay, and absolutely necessary, to shut down, kick back, and do nothing.
(Lori Deschene)

Tip 3 - Release Stress Accumulation

Everyday take time to wash away the accumulation of your inner self talk and the energies you have picked up from other people.

This simple but effective exercise you can easily add to your daily routine.

Every time you shower close your eyes. Imagine that the water is washing away your stress and anxiety, imagine the water is a grey sludge running off your body and down the drain.
Say in your mind as you are visualising I let go of everything not for my highest good.
