I know how easy it is to get overwhelmed with all that you have to do. When you’re so tired of late nights and an endless to-do list. You may be getting close to burning out in your business if you find that your tasks are no longer enjoyable, things are getting neglected, your hobbies don’t even bring you joy anymore.
My goal is to help entrepreneurs do only what they love in their business. To avoid that dreadful feeling and burning out in your business, here’s what I’ve found really helps.
- Take care of yourself.
If you’re not practicing self-care, this is a surefire way to find yourself burnt out. Note that I said “practicing”. It takes practice to take some time away just for you, without thinking about work and to do what most relaxes you and takes your worries away even for a moment. So have a bubble bath, enjoy that glass of wine and Netflix, and destress!
- Plan your week ahead of time.
Life can get busy. Emergencies can happen. Plan your week on Friday’s or Sunday’s so that you’re prepared and know what you’ll be working towards this week. This helps you stay on track and avoid taking on too much. When planning your schedule, don’t forget to leave a few blocks of time so that you’re not working 100% every day, and giving yourself extra room in case you need it.
- Say “no” to what doesn’t serve you.
If you’re always saying “yes” to doing things you don’t 100% enjoy, or taking on too many clients at once, and not having much time for yourself or to focus on your business, get familiar with saying no. You don’t have to feel guilty about doing what’s better for YOU.
- Outsource to a virtual assistant.
Seriously! Having a virtual assistant as a source of support will save you from burnout. Your business can run, emails answered, social media posts sent out, while you relax by the pool sipping your drink of choice. Even if you just get a few tasks handled, this may free up more time for you to focus on self-care, focus on areas of your business that you LOVE, and grow without the added stress.
