4 ways to prevent burnout and minimize mental fatigue

  1. Play some mindless cell phone games

Spending 10 to 15 minutes on a mindless activity such as easy to follow cell phone games can give our brains a reboot, allowing it to take a break from the daily demands at work.

  1. Walk for pleasure, not exercise

When we think of walking for exercise we think of sweating, increased heart rates and distance covered. Taking a walk outside of the office to catch local scenery or to get some fresh air can take the stress out of exercise goals and let your mind settle.

  1. Cultivate a positive attitude

Regardless on the amount of projects or tasks you face each day, it is important to focus on the positives in your life. Try keeping a journal, writing down positive things and getting out of bed on the “right foot” each morning. It can make a significant difference for your mental health

  1. Delegate (or at least ask for help)

While many of us are responsible for multiple roles at our workplace it does not necessarily mean that we have to do everything all of the time. If you have the ability to delegate some work, do so. Likewise, if you just need a helping hand on a big project try partnering up with a co-worker so that you can help each other out during busy periods.
