Frequent breathing is one way to avoid burnout at work

Posted: Updated:

With summer officially over, it can be extremely easy to tire yourself out when at work. According to the New York Times, in a nationwide survey, 50 percent of respondents are consistently exhausted because of work.

Work stressors like unrealistic deadlines, frequent scheduling conflicts and unpredictable schedules can lead to burnout.

But, here is what you can do to avoid it.

  1. Focused breathing- which can tap into your parasympathetic nervous system and help manage your stress.
  2. Take breaks- frequent breaks, preferably five minutes for every 20 minutes spent on a single task sitting at your desk.
  3. Comfortable seating- make sure you have a chair in your office that you are comfortable in. Also, have a sit-stand arrangement.
