In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle of life and business. We can often find ourselves trying to keep up with the never-ending to-do list, leaving us feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and burnt out. After recently experiencing “masculine energy” burnout, I’m making it my mission to help women from going through the same thing. From the depths of my soul I mean it when I say its essential to take a step back, reevaluate our priorities, and find ways to restore our energy and vitality.
Here are seven ways to go from burnt out to lit up:
1)Create a “dream day” calendar
One way to combat burnout is by creating a dream day calendar. This involves visualizing and planning out your perfect day, including all the activities, people, and experiences that make you feel happy and fulfilled. It’s an opportunity to set intentions for your life, prioritize self-care, and make time for what matters most. By incorporating these elements into your daily routine, you’ll feel more inspired and motivated to tackle your to-do list.
2) Set aside sacred space for yourself each day
Finding a quiet space where you can disconnect from the noise and distractions of the outside world can be incredibly rejuvenating. It’s a chance to tune inwards, connect with your soul, and recenter. Whether it’s a morning coffee with the Universe, a lunchtime walk, or an evening yoga class, scheduling regular time for yourself will help you maintain a sense of calm and balance throughout the day. Make this non-negotiable!
3) Find your power in being present
Living in the present moment is one of the most powerful ways to reduce stress and anxiety. It allows you to fully immerse yourself in the present experience and let go of any worries or concerns about the future. Learning this has been one of the greatest lessons I’ve had in the past year. The practice of presence continues to be my highest priority and focus in as many moments as possible.
4) Hire a coach or mentor for insight and guidance
Sometimes, it can be challenging to navigate the complexities of life on our own. Working with a coach or mentor can provide valuable insights, guidance, and support as you navigate life and/or business challenges. Whether it’s a therapist, a life coach, or a business mentor, having someone to hold space, give you ideas and strategies, positively call you up, uncover areas of growth, etc. can help you gain clarity, perspective and so much more!
5) Know your elemental pattern of air, earth, fire, and water
the elements of air, earth, fire, and water represent different aspects of our physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. By understanding your dominant elemental pattern, you can tailor your self-care practices and business activities, to meet your specific energetic needs. For example, someone in their fire element “week” would benefit from selling, podcasting, doing live videos, etc., while someone in their earth element “week” would benefit from grounding practices, decluttering, organizing and strategizing.

6) Upgrade your body and self-care routine
Taking care of your body is essential for maintaining optimal health and well-being. This includes eating better, getting enough sleep, and moving that beautiful body.
In addition, incorporating self-care practices like massage, acupuncture, or aromatherapy can help you relax and unwind. By prioritizing your physical health, you’ll have more energy and vitality to tackle life’s challenges. This is the hardest area for me, but I’m fully committed to making my health my #1 priority in 2023.
7) Find a hobby that allows you to have fun and take your mind away from stress/anxiety
Engaging in hobbies and leisure activities is an excellent way to reduce stress and boost your mood. Whether it’s painting, playing music, or practicing a sport, finding an activity that brings you joy can help you unwind and recharge. By prioritizing leisure time, you’ll have a greater sense of balance and perspective, which can help you navigate life’s challenges with more ease and grace.
