How to prevent mental exhaustion

Experiencing burnout and feelings of extreme tiredness can affect your life quite significantly. We are living in a stressful time and these feelings are more common than you might think. The way to overcome mental exhaustion is to first locate the stressor that is causing you to feel overly exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, and even a lack of motivation.

Here are 5 ways to combat mental exhaustion and prevent it in the future:

1. Build Breaks Into Your Schedule

Taking breaks is essential in helping prevent over-exhaustion. It can be easy to fall into the habit of overpacking one’s schedule and working tirelessly. However, giving yourself moments throughout your day to relax your body and mind will not only help you feel more at peace but also give you more clarity and energy when you do get back to work.

2. Exercise

When feeling overwhelmed, getting active is a great way to blow off steam. Not only is it healthy for you physically but even just 20 minutes of working out a day releases a lot of endorphins. Endorphins help improve your mood and boost your energy. Getting outside is an added benefit for it sunlight and fresh air are invigorating and allow you to get space from screen time. Sunlight helps regulate your circadian rhythm for a restful night’s sleep while also giving you the benefit of vitamin D.

3. Journaling

Journaling is a great way to get your mind off of stress in your everyday life and a tool for helping organize the many thoughts you may be experiencing. By writing your thoughts, feelings, or actions down you can gain new perspectives and insights on the events occurring in your life while also finding relief from the stress. Take time to reflect and implement this as a daily hobby to help regulate your feelings of overwhelmedness.

4. Setting Boundaries

Many people experience work-related stress and a great way to find some ease in your everyday life is to set boundaries with your work. It can be easy to follow habits of working long days and overtime, however, this ultimately takes a toll on one’s physical and mental health.

Finding a healthy work-life balance is imperative and can make a huge impact on your life.

When you are not working, try to fit in time for hobbies or being with people who bring you joy. This will help increase your creativity and motivation while at work.
