Don’t have we all a kind of burnout sometimes? Fortunately, there are natural ways for relief, drug-free, without side effects and self-sabotage. Scientifically validated. Read on to learn more about…
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
Holly Bear from Wheeling, WV, asks:
There is almost no week and month without suffering a – what modern medicine calls – burnout of which I cannot get rid with any synthetics. A vicious cycle of health?
The so called burnout is usually the consequence of an imbalance between work and our private life. Not only in quantitative terms such as time conflicts but also qualitatively with respect to different life contents. Leading to mental and physical exhaustion.
SCIENTIFICALLY VALIDATED NATURAL WAYS OUT
To get out of this vicious cycle and achieve a kind of equilibrium, scientific research at, inter alia, the University of Texas in Austin, TX, and the University of Sussex in Brighton, UK, is recommending following steps.
In order not to let work-related stress enter and hamper your private life, i.e. your family and other social activities alike.
Even if it seems hard to disconnect from work in your spare time, yes, it is possible if you organize your mind, accordingly. E.g. with
Another – or additional – avenue leaving behind work-related trouble can also be to
Change of Clothes
i.e. getting rid of your kind of ‘work uniform’ in favor of a casual dress. Since different clothes support a different mental identity for most people, as in most cases you demonstrate a different identity with different clothing. Drawing a ‘visual’ line between work and privacy.
Especially if you are one of those ‘modern’ people seemingly ‘dependent’ on electronic connections between all parts of your daily life –
Shut off your smartphone
in your spare time, to re-activate not before next work shift. In order to avoid being connected to your work place 24 hours as a kind of ‘brain drain’. With respect to permanently checking e-mails, messages and calls.
Outsourcing of chores
To avoid being overwhelmed by housework when coming home from workplace instead of relaxing, you may delegate at least part of your housework. In order to save your spare time for social and other private activities supporting you physical and mental wellness.
Read a book?
Yes, it really sounds ‘profane’ and not at all sophisticated. Still, according to research at the University of Sussex in Brighton, UK, reading a book “causes you to enter what is essentially an altered state of consciousness.”
Therefore, in order to avoid and overcome a burnout as the imbalance between work and private life, just read a book before you start to work, and after you stopped your professional work for the day.
This will not only lower your stress level in general, but has a positive effect on your creativity by increasing your mental flexibility.
