What is burn out?
Burn out is a feeling that happens to the best of us— that feeling when you are overwhelmed, or even feel incapable of completing tasks that usually you leave you feeling impassioned. It is a completely common phenomena in the fitness world, but the solutions aren’t always so apparent to the sufferers. Maybe you’ve been cutting your work outs short, or even skipping them all together. How can one overcome burn out and get back on track?
Tips for Overcoming Burn Out
Evaluate— Seems simple right? Take a step back and evaluate your current situation. Remind yourself why you started working out and try to figure out why you are currently dissatisfied. Are you bored? Tired? Demotivated?
Dispel Monotony— If you’re feeling bored, try some new activities. Go jogging somewhere you’ve never been before. Try a new class, something crazy. And when was the last time you varied your lifting routine? Doing the same activities day-in and day-out can eventually lead to burn out, so be sure to add some spice to your life. Try mixing it up at least once every 3 months, with minor switch-ups at least once a month.
Be A Goal-Setter, Go-Getter— What are your fitness goals? It is great to set  long-term goals; however, it is also beneficial to set small goals that you can achieve along the way. It boosts morale, whether you shave 5 seconds off your mile time or add 5 pounds to your bench press. Don’t get demotivated if you aren’t reaching your “big goals”. Set smaller goals and remember that every effort is beneficial in the long run!
Take Some Time— If you are feeling abnormally tired or exhausted, try lessening the intensity of your workouts for awhile or even take a day off to recover. Overtraining can very well contribute to exercise burn out. Don’t be scared that one day will turn into a week or a month off; It’ll only happen if you let it, so make a solid plan and stick to it.
Accountability Buddy— Find a fitness friend who will hold you accountable for missing a workout. This can be in real life, or even here on the tumblr community. Stay actively engaged with others and make sure you hold them accountable, too! They will be sure to return the favor.
Retail Therapy— Sometimes getting some new, upbeat music for your iPod or a new work out outfit can help immensely.
Something Is Better Than Nothing— Push yourself to the best of your ability, but on the days that you aren’t feeling it, just remember: something is better than nothing.
