69: How To Avoid Burnout and Compassion Fatigue

Burnout. Compassion fatigue. Pandemic fatigue. The human race is experiencing the reality of these mental and emotional stresses every day. In today’s episode, we share with you the audio from a Coffee with the Coaches Facebook LIVE show we did on our page in January 2021. This content comes from leadership content that we created for one of our corporate clients and it is a much-needed, timely message that we can all benefit from! Grab your coffee and let’s discover how to avoid burnout and compassion fatigue…

3 Ways to Avoid Burnout and Compassion Fatigue:

Tip 1: Be compassionate and caring of yourself!

Most of us have harsh inner critics who judge us, put us down, and punish us when we make mistakes. As long as you have a tape in your head playing negativity and beating you up all day long, you’ll find it hard to be compassionate to your patients and their families. Seek out a trained professional, like a coach or counselor, to help you with your mindset. Being compassionate and caring toward yourself will go a long way in avoiding burnout and compassion fatigue!

Tip 2: Manage your stress and emotions by UNPLUGGING from social media.

People tend to forget that burnout and compassion fatigue can happen due to a lack of fun. Make it a point to schedule times for fun and relaxation every week. Start the gratitude journal. Implement steps for a better night sleep. Stay off of social media for 24-48 hours each week!!!

Tip 3: Re-connect with your WHY.

When you know your why, and remind yourself of it often, you will keep the feelings of indifference and carelessness at bay. It’s an important step to stay focused and avoid burnout and compassion fatigue.
