5 Tips to Manage Stress and Avoid Burnout in 2020

Happy New Year!

You’ve entered 2020 full of high hopes and ready to start fresh. You are ready for this year to be different. It’s time for a change, and you’re ready to commit to caring for yourself and making that change this year.

January is a Time for Reflecting & Goal Setting

With the end of another decade, you’ve been feeling more reflective lately. As you look back, you observe the things that didn’t work in the last year. Or 2 years. Or 10 years. And, you are using that knowledge of what hasn’t worked to propel you forward into this new decade. You’re starting 2020 feeling more motivated than ever. You’re feeling motivated to be a better version of yourself. As you turn your attention forward, you’ve begun to set new goals for yourself and develop plans for achieving big dreams in the upcoming year.

As you reflect on 2019, you realise you’ve been a little burnt out.

You’ve worked hard to take care of everyone else. In fact, it feels like you have to be everything to everyone. Others depend on you. But you’ve been overworked for a while now. Your work feels draining, not energising. You’ve been sick a couple of times recently, but you feel exhausted even when you’re physically healthy. It feels like you are constantly juggling responsibilities and rushing from one thing to the next. Even when you’re out having fun, part of your mind is still on your long to-do list.

You know you can’t keep up this pace forever.

In 2020, you’re setting a goal to better manage stress.

You know that self-care needs to be a top priority this year, and you’ve promised yourself to not work yourself to burnout again. Not only do you want to survive this year, you also want to thrive. You worked so hard last year that you forgot to take care of yourself. But that’s not going to happen this year. This year, you’ll establish the right routines and find balance in your life.

Taking care of yourself will help you reach other goals.

You have so many things you want to accomplish this year. So many things to tick off your list. You know that the list is do-able. However, you know you need to take care of yourself in order to be at your best and achieve your other goals. You realise that you’re going to have to prioritise yourself.

If you take the time now to set a goal and make a plan to care for yourself, you’ll build your resilience. Then, when you come face-to-face with difficult times, you’ll have the strength to continue to push through.

As a reminder, it starts with a self-care mindset.

In last month’s post, we talked about the mindset involved in reducing stress and the need for ongoing self-care. Once you’ve got the mindset covered though, it takes more. You need a practical plan in place for how you can keep up with self-care all year round to avoid burnout.

5 Tips for Building Resilience Against Burnout in 2020

You’re ready to take care of yourself, but not sure where to start. It starts with good self-care habits that you can consistently follow. Here are some practical places to begin.

Self-Care Tip #1: Plan to Take Breaks Throughout the Upcoming Year

Begin your year with planning when you take time off work. Of course, things can come up that may change your schedule. It’s possible that emergencies could come up or special occasions will prompt you to move things around in the schedule. However, if you mark breaks in your diary now, you are keeping the idea of taking a break top of your mind. This way, you’re less likely to be left rushed trying to find a way to ‘get rid’ of your annual leave before you lose it.

Plan the breaks in a way that works for you.

Everyone needs something a little different in their break schedule. Maybe you’re someone who needs 1 or 2 extra-long holidays to help separate and disconnect from work to feel refreshed. Maybe you even have family living abroad and longer breaks are needed so you can travel and reconnect with other important people in your life.

Self-care is an effective way to avoid burnout in Angel and Farringdon, London.On the other hand, maybe you’re someone who needs several shorter breaks, say 4-6 times a year, with a week off here and a few long weekends there. Maybe breaks work better for your family when they align with your children’s school holidays and half-term breaks. Or it could be that you know you start losing concentration every quarter if you don’t take a break.

The bottom line is that breaks don’t have to be fancy or expensive. They just need to meet your needs.

Breaks can be as simple as taking time to do house repairs or spending a couple of days going for walks in the countryside. Just something to give your mind time to re-set.

Planning ahead now, at the beginning of the year, by marking it out gives you something to be excited about. Knowing this treat is coming will help motivate you in between all the hard work that you do so you don’t become discouraged or burnt out.

Self-Care Tip #2: Plan Out Your Meals

Have you been in the habit of eating out for convenience or drinking too much alcohol? If you are feeling the impact these food habits have on both on your waistline and wallet, maybe it’s time to create a new breakfast, lunch or dinner routine.

Meal planning can take the stress out of deciding what to eat, saves you money and helps you continue eating healthy even when life gets busy.

A few tips to make meal planning easier:

  • Consider doing online shopping and marking items you use frequently as favourite items so you can shop quickly each week.
  • Pre-plan meals for an entire week at a time.
  • Keep healthy snacks and meal bars on hand (so you’re not tempted by chocolates or crisps when you’re feeling low in energy).
  • Pre-make breakfast so it’s ready to go when your alarm clock wakes you the next day. This means you can literally grab and go.
  • Make food in batches for the week or even freeze extra-large batches to use at a later date.

Self-Care Tip #3: Keep Your Top Priorities Top of Mind

You have certain goals you want to achieve in your personal and work life. For example, if this year you know you need to give special care and attention to your family due to a new arrival. Or perhaps a big part of your life is that you are acting as a carer to an ageing parent. Regardless of what it is, there are specific things you’ve named as a priority that needs your care, attention and active involvement.

On the other hand, there are some things you will need to take off your list that required attention last year but aren’t truly top priorities for you. Maybe there’s something you need to say “no” to or take off your plate now so you can focus on what’s important this year.

Sometimes we can get excited and take on projects that seem interesting but truly take away from the most important things. At some point this year, you’ll experience this where a new opportunity will come up or you’ll be asked to do something you feel like you need to do. However, taking this thing on would take time, energy and resources away from those things you’ve set as priorities.

This is why it’s so important to identify what those top few priorities are now and to write them down. Make a manageable list of the things that you want to focus on this year. Keep the list short so you can recall it on your hand (or both hands) without losing track or muddled.

Then, say “yes” only to those things that will benefit you by helping you reach those top goals. Say “no” to things that will take you away from what is most important to you.

Self-Care Tip #4: Take Time for Fun Days or Nights Out to Support your Mental Wellness

Most of your life you are responsible and busy doing things to help others. However, it’s important for you to also make time for fun days or nights out. Perhaps it feels like an unfamiliar concept to bring more adventure into your life. Consider doing something that you’re familiar with and you know you’ll enjoy such as going to a museum, comedy club, music event or festival. For example, all in the heart of Islington, you can go shopping in Angel Central, find hidden gems in Camden Passage, watch a film at the Vue cinema, see live music or theatre at The King’s Head Theatre, or take a quiet stroll along Regent’s Canal (aka. Islington Tunnel) – turn into Colebrooke Row for extra tranquility if you want to avoid the busyness of Upper Street.

Any activity where you can let go, smile, laugh, dance, see things from another perspective, or be creative is an excellent form of self-care!

Sometimes these moments of joy need to be planned in advance. Otherwise, the weeks of work will turn into months and then you wonder why you’re feeling so stressed! However, if you are a planner by nature, maybe you can also challenge yourself to be free and spontaneous. So perhaps you plan a night off but not a specific activity. Then, when the time comes you just see what you and a friend can come up with on the spot without too much planning or expectation.

Self-Care Tip #5: Set Yourself Up for Success with Your Mental Health

You know yourself best. In your self-reflection over the past year, what mental health challenges did you notice? Did you struggle with burnout to the point where you were less productive than you wanted to be, needed to change jobs or had to take some time off work? Stop to think of the steps leading up to that. Now, ask yourself what you can put in place to avoid being in the same situation this year.

For instance, it could be that you can save some emergency helpline numbers in the contacts of your phone. This way, if you feel depressed again you can easily call the Samaritans at 116 123. Perhaps you want to download a meditation app, start listening to a funny podcast or read a new self-help book. Some people even find it helpful to write a new affirmation or positive statement on their mirror each week. Another idea is to join a yoga studio and attend a yoga session at the beginning and end of each week to give attention to your body and to help you stay grounded. These types of resources can help you become more conscientious of your mental health, so it remains a top priority throughout the year.

Counselling as Self-Care

Maybe counselling would be helpful to add to your self-care plan for 2020. As a therapist who specialises in helping high achievers who often face a lot of pressure, as well as first responders, medical professionals and other “helpers” who often experience burnout, I’d love to help you.

You may think your struggles aren’t “bad enough” to need the help of a therapist. However, many people seek counselling at points when they are not in a crisis or standing at a crossroads, a point of desperation. Perhaps you have something niggling. Maybe it’s a long-standing issue that feels important to address. Counselling can help you work on that issue so you can continue to build strength and resilience. Through counselling, you can get to a stronger place and mindset.

Red and white Christmas stockings are seen hanging in a row with a lit up Christmas tree behind. Preparing for Christmas can be stressful, especially for workaholics, yet stress can be successfully managed with good self-care and stress and burnout therapy in Central London.

Christmas Countdown – How Workaholics Can Reduce Seasonal Stress

Seasonal Stress Takes a Toll on High Achievers

As a high achiever and someone who “works around the clock”, stress is second nature to you.

Your day starts at the crack of dawn and ends when it’s dark outside. Your busy work life leads to significant expectations placed upon you. Especially at Christmas – you have to juggle your responsibilities on the home front, help with seasonal preparations, fulfil family commitments during the holidays and attend important social events.

This would be difficult at the best of times, but it only gets harder around the Christmas holidays. The delicate balance is easy to be tipped over around now. On some level, you believe this added stress is temporary and hope that it will pass. But for now, you’re more prone to sickness and tiredness because your body is physically run down.

You wonder to yourself if the stress you’re feeling now will just go away after Christmas or if it’s something bigger you need to get a hold of because you’re always on the brink of burnout.

Your Mental Health Goals This Holiday Season and Beyond

You want to enjoy Christmas. This includes having the time and energy to join in with everyone and be able to do all the things that bring you happiness. (This may include generous helpings of mulled wine and mince pies.)

You’re well aware that it’s important to have some proper rest and relaxation before starting back up again in the New Year. Especially at this time of year when you’re meant to get to grips with your rising stress levels. You can’t risk burning out now. Perhaps this feels like a good time to make an early New Year’s Resolution because you want to be more on top of things and feel less stressed moving forward.

Self-Care at Christmas – Mindset Solutions for Workaholics Who Give, Give, Give

Let’s talk about self-care in terms of mindset (not just the little treats you give yourself or indulge in – like chocolates, candles and bubble baths).

Real self-care goes beyond escapism from your everyday reality. It’s about becoming aware of your relationship with “doing” and how you approach everyday life.

A nurse is standing in profile view sipping a cup of coffee on her day off work at the hospital outside at Christmas. She is managing the stressful holiday season and preventing burnout by prioritising her tasks and sharing the load with her support network. Stress management is possible even when living in Central London. Therapists can help with Work-Stress so you can avoid burnout.


When you think about self-care, you may think to yourself, “I should do more of this and less of that.” Instead of adding more pressure on yourself with “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts” take a moment to reflect on your current mindset. When you fully understand the way you approach work, rest and play, then can you take the right-for-you steps needed for real self-care.

Which mindset do you identify with most? And what does this mindset look like over Christmas?

The “I need to take responsibility for everything” Mindset

  • You are an active participant and involved in all or most Christmas festivities with family, friends and colleagues at work.
  • Does the part of you that holds high expectations, desires control and nit-picks over the finer details come into play at Christmas?
  • Are you taking a passive or active role in the seasonal activities? For example, taking a lead on the menu, decorations and social event organisation?
  • How does this mirror the way you usually work and take responsibility in activities when it’s not Christmas? (I bet there’s a link!)
  • What would it be like if this year if you delegated some responsibilities to someone else, sent some e-cards instead of handwriting everything, or shared the menu planning and cooking with others?

Key Takeaway: It’s important to re-evaluate your expectations and make room for flexibility and spontaneity. It’s also okay to let go of some responsibility and let others take charge from time to time.

The “I need to be there for everyone” Mindset

  • You’re known as the helper in the family and in your peer groups. You may even manage a team of people who rely on you for your support and decision-making skills.
  • Even in personal family and social situations during the Christmas period, you’re invited to a lot of different gatherings. When a family disagreement comes up, you are always the one intervening. Essentially, you take on the peacemaker role. Everyone always wants a piece of you and you give it to them!
  • How much can you actually give? Can you be okay with not being there for everyone all the time? Do you believe they will survive without you and can you temporarily lay down your role as a rescuer?
  • What would it be like if this year, you said no to the non-urgent and unimportant things? And be more mindful to step away from things that would overstretch you?
  • You know not everything is a problem for you to solve. So what would it be like to make plans and seek support for yourself by calling on a friend to help if you know you’ll likely feel emotionally overwhelmed again at Uncle John’s party?

Key Takeaway: It’s important to think about what it is that people seek you for, and for you to be clear in your own mind what you can and can’t do for others. If guilt sets in when you say no or take time for yourself, check to see how you respond to this feeling. Do you forget your needs and go on doing more to get rid of your guilt, or can you respect your needs and work through this initial uncomfortable feeling?

The “I need to shut everything off and everyone out” Mindset

  • You do so much, and to others, you manage it all so well. However, at different times in your life when you reach a point of high stress, you are prone to shutting down. This is especially relevant during Christmas. When you know you can’t do it all, it’s very possible that you drop all the balls you’ve been juggling. When this happens, it can feel awful and leaves you feeling like a failure.
  • This results in you doing the complete opposite. You hide because of your feelings of failure and the guilt and shame that comes with it. For example, you may avoid or push people away, and you completely crash.
  • Running away when it gets too much is a telling sign that your brain and body are on overdrive. You can’t take on any more tasks or deal with anyone.
  • Deep down it’s actually really hard to understand how stress and self-care can possibly go hand-in-hand with the way you’ve been working.
  • What would it be like if this year, you took things at a slower pace, committed to one less responsibility or delegated tasks to someone else? You can safely step away from needing to perfect things that don’t really need to be perfect. Tell someone you trust that you need a little support before things build up and communicate how you’d like them to support you.

Key Takeaway: It’s important to find different ways to be kind to yourself, to nurture yourself and work on accepting who you are. Take some time at the end of the year to celebrate all your achievements before moving swiftly onto the next new thing.

There’s Help All Around You – Remember You Can:

  • Take some of the burden off yourself and use your own support network. Hand over responsibility to someone else and phone a friend when you’re in need of help.
  • Try some new digital tools to help you when you feel the stress levels rise, such as the popular meditation and relaxation app ‘Calm’.
  • Nurture yourself in ways that make you happy and celebrate all your wins this year. Whatever you choose, make it less of a task and more of a treat.

With a mindful approach, you can make this upcoming holiday season one to remember… for all the right reasons.

For high achieving adults, stress and burnout is a commonplace and will continue to be a problem if you shy away from addressing it. Ignoring your problems may feel easier right now but it won’t erase or bring peace to the uncomfortable feelings that are hard to express. If deep down you know you are burying your feelings – it may be that you are covering experiences of trauma by keeping busy. Regardless of how deep your stress may go, you know that you are hurting yourself and your relationships. Whatever your reasons for reading this are, if you’re someone feeling stressed out and are about to burnout, I can help you.

First Responders and Family – Surviving Christmas and Beyond

“I’ll Be Home for Christmas”…or, Sometime Soon

One of the hardest parts about being a First Responder is not being able to ‘be there’ for family. This is especially hard during Christmas. For most people, being there means being physically present. For first responders, this could also mean being in the moment or having the right mindset to be fully present.

Regardless of being at home (or not), you aren’t always fully able to spend enough quality time with your family during the holiday season. Sometimes both physically and mentally. Christmas is supposed to be a time of togetherness. A time to eat and drink. To have fun and connect in gratitude with your nearest and dearest.

Families of First Responders Feel Unique Stress

In the build-up to Christmas day, you find stress in the planning and preparation of family gatherings. Organising presents, preparing food and co-ordinating your social calendar. All of this takes what little physical and emotional energy you have left. Often, at a time when you need to rest and recharge. This makes socialising hard. Especially when you need to expend so much energy travelling to or hosting your own parties.

Facing these challenges can also result in arguments, disagreements and traditional family feuds. For some people, Christmas can be a very difficult time.

YTherapy helps police officers and firefighters and medics address issues of stress and burnout, and the impact this can have on relationships over the holidays.Added to the potential drama at home, you often find yourself on-call again. Sometimes working harder over the Christmas period. And, sometimes, made to feel like you’re abandoning your family. Guilt and shame become a central theme. Again, you find yourself spending time away from loved ones and tending to trauma and other work-related tasks. All of this, amplified by the Christmas season.

Once again, work seems to always take priority and you’re reminded of how stressed and burned out you really are. There is little time for a well-deserved break or a time for celebrating.

Perhaps you work in a particular ‘problem’ area and are likely to see more cases where people’s mental and emotional welfare are of concern. You witness violence, neglect, abuse, self-harm, and other safeguarding issues. You recognise that this period is also hard for others and that working over Christmas may be more than you are mentally prepared for.


Somehow this hits you harder at this time of year, yet somehow this makes you feel more grateful.

Surviving and Thriving Through Christmas as a First Responder

As a police officer, firefighter, ambulance worker or another first responder, you deserve to enjoy Christmas with your family. You can feel free from work when you are off-duty! Let’s start by creating a mindful plan. When you take the time to plan ahead, you get to put in place things that help buffer, safeguard and protect you. With a mindful plan, family support, and solid peer support, you can truly enjoy the holiday season and protect yourself from burnout.

How to Create a Mindful Plan: Families of First Responders During the Holidays

You can reduce work stress around the holidays and family conflict by taking a few steps to prepare yourself and your family. Talk to loved ones ahead of time, sharing how you would like them to support you directly. When people have a heads-up and are cued to know what to do, we can prevent frustration and feelings of shame when dealing with things in the moment.

Plan Early

Be realistic in planning for the holidays. Whether that includes contributing to family duties, taking care of the organising or planning, and buying presents early instead of at the last minute. This means you are taking some responsibility and not leaving it all to your partner or missing it all together so that you feel a more substantial part of the celebrations.

Create New Family Traditions

  • This is the perfect opportunity to create and establish new traditions for your family that can take place before, during and after Christmas. For example, marking new special moments instead of missing out on the big day, such as counting down on an Advent Calendar, or leaving a traditional treat for Santa, or maybe even marking other seasonal holidays that take place around the same time of the year. This will allow you to feel more connected with your family and be present in the upcoming year.

Peer Support

  • Reach out to different friends who you know you have fun and a good connection with or other people who are there with you working over Christmas. Supporting each other through the holiday season will increase established bonds.

Plan for Social Situations

If you are feeling overwhelmed, consider how you are being supported in group situations. Think about what you can do when things become overwhelming. What coping strategies traditionally work for you in these situations? Make a plan and communicate these tactics to your closest family members so they know how best to support you.

Prevent Burnout: Bonding as a Family Beyond Christmas

It’s important to keep developing these new ways of thinking and coping. You can apply these tips to everyday life situations that stretch beyond the holiday season. Stressful situations happen year-round. Luckily, you will find that your new strategies will work in many situations moving forward.

Planning Ahead: Celebrations and Events

It’s easy to miss birthday celebrations and other important family events when you have so much on your mind. Every day is an emergency. So, it is understandable to neglect these annual celebrations. If you’re feeling fed up with being the absent family member, doing this can help you curb any ongoing feelings of guilt and shame.

Space for Socialising & Space for Self
(aka. Me Time!)

When you find opportune moments, you can be present and engaged with family and friends who matter to you, so you can feel connected to them. This, of course, needs to be balanced with the time you give to yourself – especially when so much of YOUR space, time and energy is often dedicated to helping others.

Peer Support: Formal and Informal Groups

Establishing your connection with friends enables you to keep in touch and be safe in the company of people who are not connected to your work. This includes people who you can both confide in, listen and relate to, or just do everyday activities that perhaps you would have skipped in the past. Having a sense of normality away from the intense trauma is so important.

Fun Family Holiday Traditions

You figured this out for the holiday season. Now, you have the opportunity to establish these new, fun family routines year-round! For example: on your days off, or new occasions with your family. Think of different ways to strengthen family bonds, such as movie nights, a trip out of town, or other special days to look forward to.

Prevent Burnout: Resources for First Responders

Contrary to popular belief, you are not invincible. You are human. You have real, human emotions and needs! When things are feeling hard and you are feeling low, it’s time to get help. If you or your loved ones start to notice your mental health is not where it should be, that is a sign that burnout is creeping in. This is especially important when it feels like there’s little support around.

If you are a first responder in London looking for support to cope with work stress and prevent burnout, consider reaching out to the Samaritans:

    • National helpline for people who are feeling affected by troubling thoughts and emotions.
    • If you’re a First Responder who may be dealing with other people’s issues of self-harm and suicide, they also lend an ear to talk specifically about difficult topics – anytime – 24/7/365.


You don’t need to be in a crisis of your own to reach out for help.
