Are you burning out, do you have friends or family burning out, or do you fear burn out happening? Better question to start is probably, what are the symptoms?
Fatigue, withdrawal, depression, loss of appetite, missing deadlines, tension headaches, suddenly a normal workload feels heavy and yes escapist behaviors like drinking, drugs, smoking and overeating. If you have any of these, or know anyone that does, odds are you've failed to take care of yourself. So what can you do, or a better question why are you burning out?
People who burnout haven't made it a priority to take care of themselves and they haven't found a passion to live.
First, get some exercise, any exercise. You'll build energy, and energetic people are forward moving and don't burnout. You'll also build endorphins and they make you happy. Happy don't burnout. Next, drink lots of water. Drink half your body weight in ounces per day. Keep fueling your system with water and clean it out and the toxins. You'll also increase your energy level, and you guessed it - energetic people don't experience burnout.
Stop taking yourself too seriously, and de-clutter your mind and space around you. Give yourself a spring-cleaning of sorts. Get around and hang out with anyone you feel has achieved a success you desire. They'll immediately make you feel better and cause you to raise your standards. Read a book and learn something new. When you learn, you grow, when you grow, it fills you up inside.
The last item thing I'd recommend is find out what you're passionate about and start doing things related to that passion and incorporate them into your everyday professional life.
Burnout is a symptom of a life without drive and a life without energy and health. Take responsibility. Find your passion, live your passion, and start treating your body as a temple. Burnout will disappear immediately.
