Avoid burning out this spring

With the spring real estate season now underway, some agents may find themselves working longer hours to service increases in buying and selling activity. When work heats up suddenly, it can be easy to over-exert yourself and burn out quickly – which can leave you susceptible to letting your clients, and yourself, down.


One way to avoid burnout is to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle. And while doing this may be a bit of a challenge for some time-poor professionals, a few simple measures can go a long way to maintaining health and happiness.


Here are three key ways to stay healthy and balanced this spring:


1. Go to bed early: while partying all night and sleeping all day may be a dream lifestyle for some, it usually doesn’t work for busy professionals. The impacts of not getting enough sleep are apparent – in fact, a study conducted by the University of California found that a lack of sleep led to early onset memory problems in participants;


2. Find a confidant: people may avoid sharing their concerns and struggles with friends in order to avoid appearing weak. Take the time to find someone who will provide a safe haven for you to discuss your concerns with and you may be surprised at the weight that lifts off your shoulders;


3. Eat well: a healthy diet will help you to maintain energy over a long day at the office. It’s best to avoid fast foods, as these are often full of fat and sugar, which only provide short-term energy boosts. Try having a bowl of fruit at your desk for a healthy mid-afternoon snack to keep your energy levels up.
