What To Do When You're Totally Burnt Out

Lifestyle May 12, 2020

Feeling the midday ‘slump’ before you arrive at the office? Yawning all day despite back-to-back espresso shots? Constantly skipping Thursday evening drinks with the team? Yes, you’re feeling a bit burnt out. We’ve all been there. Sitting in the office all day with daily tasks on repeat, it’s easy for productivity levels to quickly drop. When 5:00 pm rolls around, you’ve been scrolling Pinterest looking at the latest trends far longer than you’ve been responding to those important emails. Here are a few tips to help you get through your daily to-do list in record time. After all, a bit of morning motivation never hurt anyone.


It’s time to put down your devices and disconnect. Set a firm time to unplug and unwind - whether that's 4 p.m or 8 p.m - set a time and stick to it. Make yourself a tea, head to the sofa and simply chill out.

Switch Up Your To-Do List

To-do lists are helpful, however, you can quickly overwhelm yourself if you pack in too much. When you start to get that sinking feeling, revisit the list and decide which items are a priority and which items are not. Prioritising your to-do list will help to eliminate stress and declutter your mind.

Get Active

Use your time away from the office to refresh and rejuvenate yourself. If you spend all of your nights working from the sofa, you’re bound to experience a burnt out feeling. Try signing yourself up to ClassPass - we hear hot yoga helps manage high stress.

Reward Yourself

Have you checked the first few items off of your to-do list? Well done - grab that overpriced box of sushi you’ve been eyeing all week long. Having rewards to work towards, no matter how big or small, are incentives.
