Burnout is a serious problem that affects many people. It can affect any career field, including teaching. Burnout is characterized by exhaustion, cynicism and a sense of ineffectiveness. If you’re experiencing burnout, you might find yourself feeling physically and emotionally exhausted, cynical about your work and frustrated with your colleagues.

If you’re one of the many teachers who suffers from burnout, here are some tips for avoiding it and be at your best:

  • Take breaks from work. It’s tempting to work all day and all night, but this isn’t good for your productivity or your mental health. Taking regular breaks helps you recharge, preventing you from becoming overwhelmed by the workload. Plus, taking breaks means that you don’t have to work as hard when you do return to work after a break — because if you’re tired, you’ll feel less inclined to put in extra hours than if you were rested and energized.
  • Prioritize sleep over working late into the night. Getting adequate sleep every night is critical for maintaining good health and warding off illness as well as fatigue during waking hours. If possible, prioritize getting enough sleep over staying late at work — even if this means leaving early on some days or arriving at work later than usual on others.
  • Know your limits: Everyone has different limits when it comes to how much work they can handle. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with too many tasks at once, take time to prioritize what needs to be done first and what can wait until later. This will help ease the pressure on yourself so you don’t feel like everything is urgent all at once.
  • Exercise regularly: Even if it’s just 10 minutes of stretching before work or 15 minutes after work, exercise helps increase energy levels during the day as well as reduce stress levels so you don’t have to rely on coffee or other stimulants to get through the day.
