How to Cope with Burnout and Fall for your Job Again

Don’t ignore your feelings

You shouldn’t be ashamed of feelings. It is the first true step on your way. In other words, you won’t solve problems if you aren’t ready to notice them.

Tell someone

Conventional wisdom: there are no problems we cannot solve together and very few that we can solve by ourselves.

Change job

You have two ways: quit right now or wait for a few months and save some money. The second option gives your sense of security. You shouldn’t agree to any work because you can afford a two- or three-month break.

Do sport

The healthiest way to get endorphins is doing sport. You do need endorphins if you quit and become unemployed. The world is your oyster: you can go to the gym, a swimming pool, go jumping or attend pole dance classes or take morning walks. Anything goes!

Find a hobby

For my licking hobbies help a lot in discovering new sides of your personality and relaxing.


You need to leave your home every week or twice a month at least. As enticing as it sounds, you don’t have to go to the Maldives. You can find interesting places to visit nearby. You need to get away and can do it even in the middle of nowhere. I promise you won’t regret it.
