Burnout can cause you to slip into a cycle of negative thinking. This negative thinking often worsens over time.
You can combat this by learning how to think positively . Affirmations , which are positive statements about the future, also help you visualize and believe in what you're doing.
When you're in recovery from burnout, it can be a challenge to develop the habit of positive thinking. This is why it's important to start small. Try thinking of something positive before you get out of bed each morning. Or, at the end of the day, think back to one great thing that you did at work or at home.
You deserve to celebrate even small accomplishments. These celebrations can help you rediscover joy and meaning in your work again.
You can also bring more positivity into your life by practicing random acts of kindness at work. A basic part of our human nature is to help others. Being kind to others not only helps spread positivity in the workplace, but it also feels great. Our article on Winning by Giving has several ideas that you can use to help others in your workplace.
