1. Accept It. Acknowledge It. You must first admit that you have reached a point of burnout. Mental and physical exhaustion caused by repeated pressures and stresses in your life are some key indicators, along with what we’ve discussed in the aforementioned sections.

2. Time For A Long (Deserving) Break Detaching yourself from your work environment for some time is one of the only methods to properly heal. Work exhaustion can suck away the joy from the job you love. Taking a vacation may be the thing that saves your career and restores your rockstar status. 

3. Find A Stress Releaser Burnout can feel like a stress cooker. You take it and take it and then you reach your final saturation point and boom! You’re going to blow up if you don’t open that release valve every now and then. Perhaps not literally, but emotionally, you’ll break down, have outbursts, or do anything that could jeopardise your profession.

4. Set Your Boundaries Taking on more than you can handle is a definite way to your exhaustion. It can also make you bitter towards your job and boss. Therefore, managing burnout in the workplace becomes really important. Ask yourself if you’re overworking yourself. Be brutally honest and if the answer is yes, you need to set your boundaries.

5. Have A Heart-To-Heart Sharing your worries, ideas, and concerns with someone who actually cares about your well-being is another approach to release some stress. It might be your partner, closest friend, neighbour, or a trustworthy co-worker.
