Are you feeling burnout or just plain flat leading up to the holidays?
Are you trying to push through, to make it over the line?
It’s a very normal feeling and goal to have during the coming days leading up to Christmas and new years & you’re definitely not alone or the only one experiencing this!
Today we wanted to discuss our favourite tips to decrease burnout and feeling flat, in general, & leading up to the holidays. Here we go:
- Make yourself a priority: Putting yourself first should always be your main priority, especially when it comes to taking care of your mental health.
- Make sure you’re getting enough sleep: Sleep is so important for general health but especially mental health! When you’re not getting enough sleep, it accelerates symptoms of burnout like fatigue, sluggishness, irritability & more.
- Invest in movement: Moving your body daily is a must! Adding it into your day can be as simple as a morning stretch, an afternoon walk, a walk to get lunch on your lunch break, or yoga for half an hour. It doesn’t have to be hard or strenuous, do what makes you feel good and that’s gentle on your body. Movement gets your blood pumping and brings new oxygen to the brain, not to mention gives you those good endorphins!
- Deep breathe: Meditation or deep breathing can relax your mind & body. It gives your shoulders a stress release, it allows your brain to catch up with your body and decreases your overall heart rate. It can be as simple as taking one long deep breathe or a series of them. Do whatever you feel like & try not to force yourself to do it because chances are, you won’t.
Practising these during the day leading up to the holidays can calm your nerves, anxiety, or any other negative feelings. As they decrease negative feelings overall, they are also a great idea to add to your daily routine! Comment below & tell us your favourite ones.
We hope these tips are valuable & put to good use. Happy holidays from us to you! – SMP
