A lot has happened in recent times. Countries are at war with each other. Economic realities are getting harsher every day. The increased cost of living has led people to take on more work than before just to get by, all while still coming down from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
With everything that’s going on in the world today, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, tired, exhausted, and anxious. Believe me when I say that you’re not alone. If you can relate to these feelings, you’re most likely experiencing burnout.
Burnout is a form of exhaustion caused by constantly feeling swamped. It's a result of excessive and prolonged emotional, physical, and mental stress.
One of the ways to tackle burnout is by resorting to gratitude. It may sound unorthodox, but here are 4 ways gratitude can help you overcome burnout.
Gratitude Keeps You In Check
Expressing gratitude helps to develop and maintain healthy habits. These habits are often pushed aside when experiencing burnout and indulgences like overeating, excess alcohol consumption and other vices often become prevalent. Gratitude helps you to regulate yourself and maintain your active lifestyle without relapsing to negative habits.
Gratitude Helps To Manage Anxiety
Anxiety is a common symptom of burnout. When you’re burnt out, your everyday tasks and life can make you increasingly anxious. Gratitude helps you focus on positive and happy thoughts, thereby reducing the chances for anxiety to linger in your mind and curbing the symptoms of burnout.
Gratitude Helps You Design An Optimistic Reality
One of the most beautiful things about practicing gratitude is that it helps you to create a positive outlook on life. When you find things to be thankful for, you’re less likely to b plagued by negative thoughts which lead to the psychological stress common with burnout.
Gratitude Enables You To Bounce Back From Challenges
Experiencing challenges and obstacles is a normal aspect of our human existence. How we manage them, however, is the determining factor of our mental strength. When you practice gratitude, you can recover from setbacks and challenges quicker because your mentality is not leaning towards defeat. That’s what gratitude does. It tackles the victim mindset that makes you wallow in self-pity and helps you to put challenges into perspective. That way, you can work through them with ease and clarity.
So start “counting your blessings” today!
