Listen Now: Avoid the Burn
The daily grind can burn you out, even if you never leave your home.
According to a July 2020 survey of 1500 people by FlexJobs and Mental Health America, 75% of respondents have experienced burnout at work–40% of them say it has happened during the pandemic.
Part of the problem is working at home makes people feel they need to be more available–and end up working longer hours.
So how do you keep your paycheck, and your sanity? According to FlexJobs, there are five tips that will help you avoid burning out.
First, develop boundaries. Being a remote worker means you are never really “away” from work. So have a dedicated work space that you can leave. Or put your laptop away when you’re done. This will signify to your brain the workday is over.
Next, turn off email and work notifications after hours. Let your team know when they can expect you to respond and let them know when you’re off the clock. For more, go to forbes.com
