Working and managing the stress associated with daily living can be challenging at the best of times, and trying to achieve success can be stressful. Whether you’re a student or a professional on a mission, it is too easy to become consumed in the whirlwind of your work and experience burn out.

There are no elevators to success – you have to take the stairs one at a time. Building on small wins is how we can achieve great things. Here are three powerful strategies to avoid drowning and feeling burned out:

 1. Embrace progress over perfection

Chasing the elusive idea of perfectionism will only ever end poorly – instead, celebrate every step you take in the right direction. Set daily goals for yourself that are both achievable and manageable, and enjoy all the small victories that will lead you towards your ultimate objective.

2. Map out SMART goals

When planning out your objectives, make sure that they are SMART.






Using the SMART system can be a helpful way to set goals that are both achievable and focused – they are your pathway to success!

3. Master the art of true relaxation

If you have work to do, chores to take care of, responsibilities piling up, and a never ending list of tasks that need your attention, the niggling guilt and the stress of it all can make it especially difficult to relax. The often forgotten secret, however, is that relaxation is essential to productivity. You need to achieve a proper balance between being productive and getting enough rest, or else it’ll only end up being counter-productive in the long run. Recharging your internal battery and regaining your energy is extremely important for your physical and mental health. Veer away from endless scrolling and opt instead for healthier ways to occupy yourself. Engage in physical or creative activities that engross your mind and body and bring you joy.

Burn out is always unpleasant to deal with, but these three strategies can help you manage it, or avoid it altogether.
