How to avoid working from home burnout
As we keep hearing, we’re in unprecedented times. Covid-19 is affecting everyone in all aspects of life so it’s not unreasonable to suggest we’re all experiencing mass chronic trauma at this moment in time.
Faced with the very real threat of this current pandemic and all that it entails, it’s very tempting to over-compensate by working all hours. But how do you keep an eye on your business concerns while looking after your family, your health and your finances at the same time? How do you keep all those plates spinning without feeling totally overwhelmed?
The answer, so says burnout awareness expert, Anna Pinkerton, above all is by being kind to yourself. It’s by taking a sustainable approach to work that will support you now and in addition keep you going over the next few months. That way, when we’re out of lockdown, you’ll have the energy and drive to go back to business as normal…
