Suffering from burnout

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Simply put it, this year I've been studying A Levels and been trying to get my business off the ground. I always have a positive mindset but jut recently, I've just felt that my efforts are useless and just not needed. I'm by no means suicidal but I do have the thoughts of what's the point in working so hard whenever you could just end it.

    Does anyone else feel burnout and if you've ever went through it, then how did you solve it? Really needing some help in thinking more positively than I have recently.

    Give yourself a break. If you are spending every minute working on A Levels and starting up a business, it's going to be frustrating when you don't immediately see results. Take a step back and pace yourself. Consider your end goal: why are you studying A Levels? Why do you want to start this business? What benefits do you stand to gain if you succeed? Try to find time for things you enjoy in your free time. Giving yourself a mental mini-break regularly will help keep your thinking positive. Over-working and worrying will cause more stress.
