How NOT to Burn Out!

25 Aug


Tips for Overcoming Burnout When Working From Home

For most people, working from home is a brilliant position to be in. However, as with most things in life, it does have its drawbacks. So, if you’ve felt like you haven’t been giving the best you have to offer, you might be approaching burnout; here’s how to overcome it. 

Watch what you eat

We are more likely to resort to stress eating when we are facing a lot of pressure work-wise. Research has shown that eating unhealthily can cause all sorts of unpleasant effects on our bodies as well as our minds. So, if you’ve been failing in this area and have been resorting to fast food instead of healthier food options, there are ways around this. For one, you can have healthy food items delivered right to your door instead of going the non-healthy route when you are out and about. Before choosing a food delivery service, be sure to look up reviews to see what companies are offering top-notch delivery services, so you can be assured you’re receiving the very best there is. 

Creating a relaxing outdoor space

If you have been suffering from burnout lately, then why not get outdoors more?  What’s more, if your backyard is peaceful and serene, then you’re more likely to derive even more satisfaction from the outdoors, which should help to lessen your stress levels quite a bit. So why not hire professional landscaping services to transform your backyard into a dream oasis by connecting with local landscapers in your area that are close by?  Be sure to keep an eye out for deals or discounts, too, if you have your budget to consider. Also, having a preliminary meeting with them beforehand will ensure everyone’s on the same page design-wise. 

Eliminate all negative energy

Now that we’ve dealt with the exterior of your home, it’s time to deal with the interior of your home as well. For example, a well-organized workstation, with everything in its place, is sure to promote inspiration and creativity, which can enhance any positive energy there already is. 

Take regular breaks

While working from home can seem not as pressurized timewise, it is also easier to lose track of time. This can result in you not taking regular breaks even though you should, which can eventually lead to feelings of overwhelming exhaustion and burnout. So, make it a point to take small breaks often – your work will thank you for it! 

Create boundaries

Setting boundaries means knowing when to say no when your body and mind are telling you so. Again, establishing boundaries should enable you to accomplish much more as you’ll be focused on matters of priority instead of having your time and attention spread over too many things. 

Go to bed earlier

Going to bed earlier can make a lot of difference to your day the next day. Furthermore, you’ll be more alert and focused when it comes to handling pressing issues more thoroughly than you would if you were only just getting the bare minimum of shuteye daily. 

Go on that mini vacay

Take a holiday often, even if it’s just a mini vacay or a weekend getaway on the odd occasion. And when you return, you should feel more wide-eyed and bushy-tailed on your return. The above are just some of the things you can do to avoid burnout even while working from home.

Skip the Financial Struggle: 5 Tips to Launch Your Dream Business

16 Apr

Finances might be the single most difficult part of business ownership. From startup costs to seasonal slumps to attracting new customers (and their wallets), it’s tough to keep your company in the black. Especially if you’ve already experienced financial setbacks before, success may feel far away. If your business plan is on the line and you’re not sure how to fix up your finances, try these helpful tips from Sunn Legacy Group LLC.

Check Your Niche

Finding the cash to support your dream business can sound daunting, not completely overwhelming. However, tons of financial programs offer resources to would-be business owners in all niches. The trick is tracking down the programs that will work for you.

You can start with conventional financing options like small business loans and support. Then, look into special programs for companies in your niche. For example, the National Association for the Self-Employed offers specific grants of up to $4,000 for eligible businesses.

Other organizations provide grants and loans with varying terms. See what’s out there for your intended industry and start applying as soon as possible.

Seek Social Support

There’s a reason so many startups turn to crowdfunding for money: it works! Some crowdfunded businesses with humble beginnings even became million-dollar companies thanks to their customers’ initial buy-in.

You may not reach millionaire status with crowdfunding, but a well-planned campaign could help you get a jump on your business goals. Popular crowdfunding sites that are also trustworthy, says the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, include:

  • Kickstarter
  • Indiegogo
  • GoFundMe
  • Patreon
  • Fundable

Check out each platform and its options before signing up. Consider the fees required and how transparent your campaign will be to potential buyers.

Get Legit on a Budget

A legitimate business model and structure is likely a top priority for your startup. Having a recognizable business name and branding is great, but you’ll want to check all the legal boxes before you can take off. Fortunately, you can DIY much of the business setup process for less cash than you might expect. Searching for existing business names on your state’s filing site is a good place to start. After all, you don’t want to run into any trademark or copyright issues.

Your next step is to define your organization with a solid business structure. You might go for an LLC setup for tax advantages and flexibility. By filing using a formation service web site, you can save money that you would otherwise spend on a lawyer. For an affordable cost, you can have your business documents in order before your doors (online or in-person) open.

Pick Projects That Count

You likely have a long to-do list of things you want to accomplish before starting your own small business. However, tallying up the expenses for each item may leave you wondering whether business ownership is really your jam.

The good news is that hiring help for business setup tasks might be cheaper than you think. Outsourcing freelance help project-by-project means you can get your logo designed, have your website set up, and source branded product packaging for less than you think.

Think about the essentials and pick projects that count the most. For example, your organizational branding is vital for helping customers discover you online and in print materials, so that may be a must-have service you decide to shell out for.

Prioritize your to-do list project by project and decide whether outsourcing a bit at a time is a better use of your time and energy. It may be preferable to spending hours flip-flopping on design ideas or learning new tools. There’s plenty of time for that later, as your business grows!

Take It One Step at a Time

Business growth doesn’t happen overnight, and neither will success (or your first sales). Having a cushion in your savings account to fall back on is ideal. But if you’re operating on a shoestring budget, it’s still possible to operate on very little cash flow while growing your company.

Of course, if you need help attracting audiences, think about new ways you can engage audiences with Bangs Media.
