The Three R’s According to Help Guide Recognize– It is important to look for signs of burnout, this can help you determine what you need to do as far as seeking help. Reverse– If you are indeed experiencing burnout it can be reversed by managing your stress and seeking support. Resilience– If we experience burnout, our physical and mental health can worsen so it is important to build that resilience to stress by taking care of our bodies.Â This includes a healthy diet, proper amounts of sleep, and physical exercise.

I think it would be an excellent idea as moms toÂ write the three R’s on a post-it or 3X5 card and put it on our mirror or in ourÂ planner, etc. as a reminder to us that we need to stay focused and healthy to avoid burnout.Â I think this is an excellent approach and one that should be adopted not just by moms alikeÂ but by college students, business men, etc. Will you consider using the three R’s approach?Â Maybe you have tried something different that has helped you?Â Please share with us your tips on how to avoid burnout.
