How to Prevent Burnout (3 Part Series)

This is the second part of a three-part series about Burnout. In this action, you will read about my own tips on how I’m able to prevent burnout in my own life whilst also juggling being a full-time student, a part-time intern, and a part time assistant researcher.

With multiple stressors that come with the closing of the year, it can be hard to deal with and balance all of these things at once. I personally like to take time to step back and make sure I am aware of all of my roles and responsibilities in life. This may include checking in on my classes through web courses to make sure I’m up to date on my work. I also like to make sure everything is written down for each day of the week. On Sunday I will take time to write down any club or lab meetings I might have along with tests I have to study for and other work I must complete during this week. Having the list keeps me extremely organized and prevents me from ever missing a deadline or forgetting to do work. Those who are experiencing burnout in which they feel stressed due to an overwhelming amount of work may benefit from writing down what expected of them on a weekly basis instead of everything needed in a month, as many people do, then setting specific times in the day to tackle each obstacle. However, it is always important to remember that things happen and events may shift in our life. So always remember to let yourself feel comfortable moving things around and changing different aspects of  “the list”. Another important thing to remember is to give yourself  “me time”. Your work can only be as good as what you’re able to physically and mentally give. This is why it’s important to always focus our attention on taking care of ourselves when needed. This will also help us to fight against burnout.
