8 Ways to Avoid Burnout

June 16, 2015 | By | 5 Comments">5 Comments

how to avoid burnout

 

Have you ever discovered that you’re burnt out from work? From life?

Well…where is that coming from?

Is it because you’ve been overworked for too long? Maybe you’ve been overstressed for too long?
(Keep in mind this could be work stress, family stress, and relationship stress.)

In order to avoid burnout there’s a few questions I want you to consider.

 

  • When was the last time you went on vacation?
  • How often are you telling people “NO”?
  • Do you need to tell some family members or friends or bosses “No”?
  • Do you have too much responsibility on your plate?
  • Do you have controlling people in your life?
  • Are you writing down all you commitments in order to eliminate the unnecessary?
  • Are you focused on your health?
  • Are you suffering from information overload?
  • Are you in control of your calendar?

You hear me talking about this all the time but you must stop making statements and start asking questions. Ask yourself questions. Gain perspective!
Start asking yourself some good questions on how you got to where you.

We want you to be the strongest possible self that you can be.

Emotional Intelligence Explained

Emotional Intelligence Explained

 

 

Welcome everybody – today we are talking about this idea of Emotional Intelligence, what it is and how it can help you, can you develop it.

You’ve probably heard the term “Emotional Intelligence” before.
But…do you know what the heck it really is?

I’ve talked a lot about emotional strength and becoming a more emotionally strong leader.
I’ve talked about people pleasing and the lies we believe, that we tell ourselves.
And today I wanted to show you how all that fits into this “emotional intelligence” framework that’s becoming popular.

So I want to ask you: Are you able to detect your feelings and emotions when they start to get carried away?
When they start to drift toward the deep end of the emotional bellcurve?
How about other peoples emotions? (Yikes!)

Are you able to differentiate and process through all those feelings and emotions so that they can actually give you a framework moving forward for your actions and thinking?

If you’re like most folks, this is a big fat NO!
In fact, your eyes may have glazed over while I said that.

Let me ask it in another way:
Do you allow people’s actions to effect the way you live?
Do the actions of others stress you out?
Are you able to make decisions easily?
Do you wake up depressed some times?
Do you feel stuck?

Well, these questions are basically interpretations of the definitions I saw of emotional intelligence and todays show tries to explain it and give you a guide for developing yours.

If you have a question about todays show, go over to http://chrislocurto.com/askchris and leave me a voice note. It just may end up on air!
