How To Avoid Burnout

Great wisdom here from Brian Howard.  I don't know many guys who know how to rest well.  We need to work really hard and rest really hard.  Laziness should never be part of the discussion.  This article contributes greatly to the resting part.

Brian writes:
These kinds of collapses are common in leaders:
  • Physical Collapses - Sickness, Exhaustion, Insomnia, or Lack of energy.
  • Spiritual Collapses - Spiritual discouragement, Lack of spiritual interest, Moral failure.
  • Emotional Collapses - Anxiety, Depression.
Burnout might seem to come out of nowhere, but it really doesn’t. Burnout is often the by-product of poor choices on the part of a leader. There are patterns that lead to Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Collapses. These patterns involve not paying attention to what your body and soul really need. 
One of the most important strategies in avoiding burnout is to get rest. Without rest, burnout is inevitable. Without rest, collapse is certain.

Consider the following 4 strategies for rest that will help you to fight against Burnout.
