How to Avoid Burnout | The Professional Creative with Bonnie Christine

As creatives, it can be easy to get caught up in the "doing phase" of our work and neglect self-care—but it's crucial to prioritize our well-being by recognizing warning signs and implementing strategies to prevent burnout. In this episode, we're talking all about burnout and ways to prevent it plus my non-negotiable daily habits that help me stay on track. So if you're feeling overwhelmed or uninspired, take a listen to this episode and learn how to avoid burnout and create a sustainable creative business.

Discussed in this episode:

  • The signs and symptoms of burnout, as well as how burnout can manifest differently for everyone.
  • The importance of creating boundaries and making time for self-care to prevent burnout.
  • How to recognize warning signs of potential burnout and implement strategies to prevent it, such as creating a list of "non-negotiable" daily activities.
  • Determine your “non-negotiables.” Mine are getting enough sleep, following a morning routine, working out, drinking enough water, and having a healthy dinner.
  • The benefits of delegating tasks and building a support system of other creative entrepreneurs to avoid burnout and maintain balance.

Have you ever spent hours scouring through your video or podcast content trying to find that one place that you said that one thing or if you've forgotten or never found it and you had to rerecord everything? I've been there and it's so frustrating—and honestly a huge waste of time. But it hasn't happened to me ever since I started using Searchie. Searchie is the software that I use for all of my videos and all of my podcast content because it not only transcribes it, but it makes it searchable by keyword. To see this is in action, go to bonniechristine.com/resources.


Review of the week: 


I genuinely love listening to these podcasts. I always leave feeling uplifted and motivated. I’ve always struggled with self limiting beliefs and Bonnie has such a special gift of positivity and belief in people that it has helped me feel that I CAN chase after my dreams and that there are people and resources out there that can help me along the way. I’ve never found someone who has spoken so directly to me and my fears and helped me get through them. Thank you Bonnie!
