Do you feel unhappy with your job?
Struggling to cope with your difficult work environment?
Drained with tasks at work?
Watch out! Do not leave it unaddressed because it can result in burnout.
“Burnout is a reaction to prolonged or chronic job stress and is characterized by three main dimensions: exhaustion, cynicism (less identification with the job), and feelings of reduced professional ability,” Elizabeth Scott, MS explained in her article Burnout Symptoms and Treatment in Verywell Mind.
To help with that, here are tips from our Beyond Small Talk hosts on how to overcome your challenges at work and become productive again:
1. Remember that Jesus is your boss
There is a greater purpose why you are working and that is found in Colossians 3:23 NIV, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human master.”
Give your best at work not because you want to please men, but because you want to please God above all. Whatever good that you do, God Himself will surely reward you.
2. Check your heart
If you are at a point where you just drag yourself to work and you feel unmotivated, Beyond Small Talk host, Ardy Roberto, advises that you have to do some soul searching.
Ask God, “What is it that You want me to do? What is it that You have called me to do?”
As you wait for God’s answer, remember that it’s also not too late to learn to love what you are doing. God surely led you to that job not by accident but for a purpose.
3. Improve your work-life balance
You can be in love with your job but still get burned out if you don’t practice a healthy work-life balance.
It happened with Beyond Small Talk host Miriam Quiambao-Roberto.
Her advice? Do not let work steal your time with God.
“We need that moment where we have to connect with our Creator so that we can create more in our work,” she said.
Moreover, carve out special time with your loved ones and you will see how it can bring refreshment to your soul and strength as you face tomorrow.
Find comfort in God’s Word in Philippians 4:6 NIV, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Do you need prayers for your work? Perhaps, you are at the point of burnout.
