Practical tools for beating burnout

A tale about teacher burnout ...

You've just ended another term.

What a challenge - it's been fun, rewarding - but draining. Oh so draining.

You've been running on empty for weeks.

School holidays come.

"Thank goodness," you say as you stumble over the finish line.

 You're beyond exhausted...

Relieved that the term is over.

It's the holidays.

You spend time rejuvenating, ignoring all the school work you brought home to do.

You spend some time ignoring all the home projects you've put off during term time.

You spend some time berating yourself for not getting the school work or home projects done.

Slowly you start to gather enough energy to make plans for 'doing it differently' next term.

And then, before you know it, it's time to go back.

And the resolutions begin.

"This term it's gonna be different", you say to yourself confidently.

You make plans – this term, this month, this week is going to be different.

 You're going to get on top of that endless to-do list for once and for all.  

You're going to eat well, you're going to exercise, you're going to... you're going to...

But then the term starts, and a week into it, the holidays are long forgotten.

And Sunday after Sunday, Monday looms.

You know the weekend is coming to an end and tension starts to rise.

Each week the stress and overwhelm accumulate.

Each week you are slipping closer and closer to the burnout bunker.

As a fellow teacher of 25 years, I've been there.

I would start each term full of hope and inspiration,
committed to work-life balance and my own well-being.

This would be the term, the month, the week that I would finally do it differently,
only to have those goals fall away all too soon and to watch my mental and emotional health falter.

I get it. I’ve been beat up and broken, exhausted and depressed,
yet still trying to continually give to those around me,
to slog my way through the to-do list,
the endless meetings that should have been an email.

We're here to thrive, not just survive.
Make the decision to put your well-being at the top of your to-do list.

So, what do overwhelm and burnout
look like in your life?

Perhaps they show up at work and the ways you overextend yourself in that environment,
chasing the completion of the endless ‘to-do’ list and constant demands.

  Maybe you find yourself unable to concentrate, with your head endlessly buzzing, a million things demanding your attention, you find yourself jumping from one task to another, with nothing ever being completed.    

For me, burnout shows up when I’ve been overextending myself to “make it all work",
ignoring the overwhelm of trying to show up 100% as business owner, a teacher, a partner,
a family member, a friend, but overlooking my own needs along the way.  

However it takes form in your life, one thing is for certain: Burnout appears when
we constantly give to others without making time to replenish ourselves.

Are stress and overwhelm a normal part in your teaching term?

  You start off fresh and excited, enthusiastic and determined but before long…

You begin to feel overwhelmed by day-to-day activities.

Another meeting, another piece of paperwork, another demand on you and your time and your emotional bucket becomes emptier and emptier...

You start to resent people and feel disconnected from others.

  Your patience is wearing thin, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to see the blue sky for all the grey clouds of planning, the little things are becoming bigger and bigger

You find yourself getting easily irritated with people.

  You're feeling exhausted, empty and unable to keep up with the pressures and demands of your day to day life.
