Get some help Maybe all of your tasks are satisfying but there are just too many of them. Explore whether you can outsource some of them (if you work for yourself) or get another employee to help you (if you work for someone else). Perhaps outsourcing some of your personal chores would free enough time to allow you to get back on top of your work responsibilities.Other suggestions include switching projects, offloading some responsibilities, starting a side job, and taking a sabbatical (which, alas, isn't an option for everyone). Have you found a worthwhile way to cope with burnout? Help your fellow workers and post it in the Comments! Photo by Pal Berge.
