Bismarck once said: “Life is like being at the dentist. You always think that the worst is still to come, and yet it’s over already”. It is the same for burnout. Learn 3 tips to boost your optimism so vital to overcome burnout.
Yes, the worst has been over already! You are in it! So take a few simple steps below to be always an optimistic person regardless of anything.

How about starting your day with powerful mantras like the below?

A morning rampage by Abraham Hicks is a great way to start a day. Try this out, I used to download and put it as my alarm message to wake up every morning! (Yes, I know, I’m extreme!).
Congratulate yourself on the smallest ‘anti-burnout’ success!
‘I had a good sleep, well done! I had a great time with my kids this afternoon without worrying about my grocery shopping, super! I did cut down two things to do on my list, good job!’ All these small things will move you out greatly from your burnout. So don’t forget to celebrate your success!
