Avoid Burnout With These Simple Suggestions



Does your remote office having you feeling burnout? According to a recent survey conducted by Flexjobs and Mental Health America (MHA), you aren’t alone. Comprised of more than 1,500 respondents, the survey revealed that 75% experienced some form of burnout, 40% of which cited the pandemic specifically as the cause. More troubling, perhaps, is the finding that only 21% were able to find support in open, productive discussions with their human resources department.  

While an employer’s response is crucial to managing a crisis, there are some things you can do to avoid burnout without input from HR. For instance, develop clear boundaries by designating space for your work, and only for work. This should be a no-brainer, but sometimes space constraints lead us to unhealthy habits. If this is you, try to avoid working in the same places you intend to relax.  

Once you’ve established your typical remote working day with colleagues and managers,  turn off email and work notifications at the end of your workday. Stepping away from Teams at your home office should be viewed along the same lines as logging off your work computer at the corporate office. When the day is done, so are you.
