Write Down Your 'Stressors' To Recover From Burnout

Write Down Your Stressors to Recover from Burnout

All of us have faced a lump of work and felt, well, burnt out. The Next Web recommends writing down your feelings to discover the true cause. Once you realise you are burned out (we've got a guide here), a good way of moving on is to take an inventory of exactly what has got you stressed.

Write down everything in your life causing you stress and be honest. Next to each stressor, write down a way you can reduce that stress. Because we do such a good job of telling ourselves to ignore stress, writing this stuff down is usually our first chance to really let our brain begin to process.

Once you have that inventory written down, you'll be able to analyse what the actual cause -- and solution -- is.

    Nice piece of advice.

    Of course, the whole point of GTD is that you capture these things and get them out of your head so they don't become a stressor in the first place. Or at least you have those things in a system you can use to take action.
