Employee Burn Out is Too Doggone Real!

Yo, my brain :brain: has officially checked out from work. This dang burnout is too real. The only thing keeping me hitting the clock is the consistent paychecks.

However, I am excited and proud because I have started taking serious baby steps with networking my blog and guest posting submissions! :raised_hands::raised_hands::raised_hands: eeeekk!!! I am too happy since I am a hermit and marketing is NOT my 1000% forte.

How are y’all handling your burnout moments?


Hey there!

First off, huge congrats on taking those steps with your blog and guest posting! :tada: It’s fantastic to hear that you’re making progress, especially since marketing isn’t your strong suit. It’s not mine either and I’m definitely an introvert.

Burnout is definitely tough. These are probably things you have already heard bur, maybe the reminder will help:

  1. Set Boundaries: Make sure to define clear boundaries between your job and your side hustle. Allocate specific times for each and stick to them. This can help prevent overlap and reduce stress.

  2. Prioritize Self-Care: Taking care of yourself is crucial. Schedule regular breaks, get enough sleep, and make time for activities that relax and recharge you. Even short moments of relaxation can make a big difference.

  3. Leverage Your Network: Since you’ve started networking and guest posting, use these connections to your advantage. Seek advice, share experiences, and lean on others for support.

  4. Celebrate Small Wins: Don’t forget to acknowledge and celebrate your achievements, no matter how small. Each step forward is a victory and can boost your motivation.

  5. Evaluate and Adjust: Regularly assess your workload and see if there are areas where you can cut back or delegate. Sometimes, a small adjustment can relieve a lot of pressure.

Remember, it’s okay to take it slow and give yourself grace during this process. You’re doing an amazing job juggling both your job and your passion project. Keep going, and take care of yourself along the way!

You’ve got this! :muscle::sparkles:


Man, I thought I was going to struggle with guest posting, but it is starting out fine now.

Also, thank you for the advice! How are you holding up on your end?


hey! sorry you are feeling burnt out but I’m glad you are finding something else to do outside your work.

Have you ever heard of the Pomodoro technique? It’s where you will have to do a focused work for 25 minutes and then take 5 minutes break after. After 4 pomodoros, you’d want to take longer breaks like 15 to 30 minutes. Then take the 5s again.

You may want to try that so you can easily celebrate small wins by completing the tasks and it gives yourself a break too.

If you can, go on a vacation or just go somewhere refreshing for you during your time off. Breaks are important. Even machines get broken when they continue to function nonstop.

Pause when you can and then get back at it. :smile:
