2021 burnout and end of year overwhelm
Have you looked at your checklist of work-related jobs and realised there is still so much to be done? If you feel like 2021 has vanished in a smoky haze of lockdowns and pandemic-related interferences, you’re not on your own. I’m sure it was September last week and bam! Now it’s December.
3 simple ways to help with brain overload
Whilst these solutions may seem obvious to most of us, we tend to dish out the advice but not take any of it on board. You’re not doing yourself, your clients and colleagues, or your family any favours by trying to be superhuman. You are one person.
Put the word out amongst your business network and find a likeminded person to collaborate with you on a project. Chances are you will be helping each other and will establish an ongoing working relationship.
While it seems that outsourcing is a fancy term for delegating, it’s not quite the same. You can outsource small jobs to individuals or companies to do the work for an agreed fee. It will reduce the amount you are paid for the job – but more importantly, outsourcing will reduce the stress of you trying to get everything done solo.
Not too much explaining needed here. If you don’t take time to take care of you, there’s a distinct possibility that you will fall in a heap. And that’s not ideal at this time of year. Support your local Wellness Centre and schedule a pre-Christmas massage, float tank experience, yoga or pilates class, meditation session … or whatever relaxes and rejuvenates your mind, body and soul.
If there’s anything I can help you with to relieve your workload, please get in touch. Words are my business.
Wishing you all a safe, stress-free Christmas and a much-improved New Year.
Bring it on 2022 … we are ready for you.
