No matter if you’re an entrepreneur or an employee in an organization, chances are you’ve experienced burnout.

It happens to everyone, especially when we pour so much of our time and energy into working our jobs.

But instead of pushing through burnout and letting it grow and snowball, it’s important to combat it and allow yourself to refresh and rejuvenate.

Here are six tips for when you experience burnout. These are things I’ve done throughout my career — some even as recently as today — to fight the inevitable feeling of burnout.
