Re-read your favourite old book or read a new book. For such cases I have my list of books i want to read. Sometimes I like reading “The Little Prince” or “The Catcher in the Rye” again and again on my tough days. Other than books, reading one of your favourite bloggers (Me? :)) will do too. Better, find a new blogger to read and follow.

“Every great wizard in history started out as nothing more than what we are now, students. If they can do it, why not us?”

Positive adrenaline

Having more adrenaline in your blood and imprinting unforgettable images to your brain will definitely trip that burnout once and for all. I suggest going bungee jumping. I suppose you’ve never done it (neither have I). Cause otherwise why would we ever feel burnt out?! If that’s too much for you for now, try this simple proven solution: running. Scientist proved it long ago that when you run your body pumps hormones that make you happier. Humans were made to run, give your body a present it will love so it can fight burning out.

However, one fundamental idea to remember during burnout is to stop whatever you were doing that led to burnout. Stop and do nothing. Rest – not you, but your body. Breathe fresh air and relax. Then start your journey back to recovery.

PS: One little thing to keep in mind. This post is for fighting burnout only. I realise it can consist of a few things from your daily routine. But I hope not all of them. So don’t overdo this. Save it for days like that. Otherwise it may not help at all.

Oh, and if you ever feel burnout – drop me a message online (be it Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or any other social network)
