Infographic: How to set work boundaries to avoid burnout
Wednesday, May 26, 2021
With remote work being the new professional normal, it can be especially challenging to stay productive and separate job stress from our personal lives. When stress is high and maintained over a period of time, it can lead to burnout or a type of work-related stress that can have a myriad of negative effects on your health and productivity.
Those experiencing burnout can suffer from fatigue and mental exhaustion, and it can also lower work performance and cause job dissatisfaction. Over time, burnout can increase your vulnerability to disease and even potentially cost you lost income because of unpaid sick leave or a missed promotion.
As May is Mental Health Awareness Month, it’s important to create healthy work boundaries whether you work remotely or in-office to help prevent the negative effects of burnout. Setting boundaries can be as simple as having a strict time to end work every day and silencing notifications or planning out your vacation days so that you make sure that you have time to recover from stress.
