Three Tips To Avoid Working From Home Burnout

Three Tips To Avoid Working From Home Burnout

Those of us fortunate enough to have remote jobs can be grateful for a few things like the lack of a time-sucking commute and more time with the family.

But…anyone who has been doing the work from home thing for a while is probably feeling the mental heat. Chances of a burnout can be high, if you’re not careful.

Over time, even the benefits of working from home can devolve into stressful situations. Without self-imposed boundaries, our time saved on the commute can lead to extra hours poured into work. Without a healthy regiment of self-care throughout the day,  anxiety and stress can build up. And that leaves you primed for a meltdown.

Luckily, Barrie is chock full of tools and providers to help navigate Covid, while maintaining productivity.

 

Three Tips To Avoid Working From Home Burnout

 

MEDITATION

Taking a break from your work to practice self-care will cut down on the aggro, and give you some time to get grounded.

Meditation is a great way to find a bit of peace during the day, even if it’s just 15 minutes. The Barrie Meditiation centre offers online streams of guided meditation every week.

There’s also the Centre For Inner Freedom, which offers meditation alongside other stress reduction programs and mindfulness techniques.

 

EXERCISE

We know…quarantine is the perfect excuse to let your entire workout and fitness fall by the wayside and eat ice cream for dinner twice a week.

But you know that your physical and emotional wellbeing are interconnected. And when it comes to experiencing burnout, neither are off the hook.

There are alot of online options, including instructor led video workouts from Core Evolution here in Barrie.

There is also a virtual walk/run for mental health later this month, with proceeds going to support RVH. So back away from the desk and get your muscles moving!

 

DISTRACT YOUR KIDS

If you have kiddos running around it can be, how to put this politely…challenging to keep them at bay for hours on end.

Beyond Netflix or Angry Birds, there are a couple of online options in town to occupy their minds while you hit the grind stone.

The library has weekly video and zoom meetings, including story time and craft making. For the older kids, the city has put together a digital hub with virtual recreation activities, like learning to juggle or building bee hotels.

And if you are looking for something a little more active, Barrie Karate is providing a 4 week class intro to martial arts, for all ages.
