Stress can paralyze us. I was feeling a bit stressed over the past couple of days 😞.
I had my first live face-to-face series of meetings yesterday ever since the start of COVID and maybe it was just adjusting to that new norm that was stressing me out a bit.
But today I'm feeling perfectly fine, so I've succeeded in being resilient so that I can bounce back up from my stress 💪.
The classic definition of resilience is bouncing back from adversity, the truth is, that most of us are resilient.
We spend a lot of time at work, yet most of us don't enjoy it the way we ought to. Our thoughts about work play a role in whether we choose to get consumed by it, or whether we are able to balance our lives with things outside of it. What thoughts cause you to deprioritize other things in your life over work, and does your work fulfill you as a result of it? Mastering the way we think about work and our lives outside of it is a key element to finding balance and happiness in life.
Burnout results in people feeling a lack of fulfillment from work. They don't feel like they are accomplishing anything. Take stock of your personal accomplishments every day, big or small, and you will start finding meaning in your work, a recipe to avoid burnout.
