Preventing Burnout

If you recognize the warning signs of impending burnout, it's likely to get worse if you do nothing. But by taking steps to get your life back into balance, you can prevent burnout from becoming a full-blown breakdown. The steps to prevention are as follows:

  1. Identify the stresses in your life via the Work and Home Stress Tables, and a Stress Diary
  2. List and prioritize the sources of stress
  3. Identify appropriate stress management strategies
  4. Create a Stress Management Plan
