5 tips to avoiding Burnout in 2024

Over the weekend news broke that Juergen Klopp, the Liverpool FC football manager will be stepping down from his role at the end of the season.

I must admit that as an Arsenal fan I celebrated the news. But then I listened to his interview as to the reasons why:

“…The one thing I didn’t know and I underestimated was the fact that my energy source wasn’t endless…”

Start-ups, Business Founders, and those with complicated, highly demanding roles or lifestyles may experience fatigue or burnout at some point in their careers. 

I certainly have so here are some ways to achieve balance and avoid burnout:

•✅ Exercise. 

Stress is caused by a rise in cortisol. Too much cortisol for prolonged periods of time create stress which may lead to burnout. Exercising floods the body with endorphins and can bring balance to the bodies chemistry and hormones. 

•✅ Sleep. Get more sleep. 

Give your body time to heal itself. Ideally adults will sleep, undisturbed, at least 7 hours/night. 

•✅ Set boundaries. 

It’s ok to say ‘no’. It’s ok to delegate. It’s ok to ask for help. It’s ok to have your work week end at 6pm on a Friday and restart at 7am on Monday. Set time aside for you. 

•✅ Balanced diet. 

Yes, this is hard. In a world of convenience food, and rising cost of quality produce we can find ourselves time poor and cash poor. Adding the right fuel to the tank can increase performance. 

•✅ Take a break. 

A week off. Some cost efficient time away in a caravan. A cheap getaway. Set time away to spend with the special people in your lives. 

It can feel unfair that we work for 45 years post Uni, giving our best years to contribute to the state though tax contributions - but as that’s the case be sure to cut out time for you too whilst you’re healthy and mobile.
