I have recently had some health issues, because I ended up ‘burning my candle’ in about 10 different places. Trying to be all things to all people and trying to get too much done in a day. My tip is write a realistic list of the things you need to get through in your day and stick to it … And, make sure you leave the office on time. Finishing up tasks at 8pm in an evening is no more beneficial than doing the task first thing the following day.

In the summer, I am in the swimming pool every morning at 7am for a 30 min swim ending with some stretches. During the other months, I am in the gym on the treadmill with some additional stetches and weights. It helps with my arthritis hot spots so I can feel better.

From my experience of a burn-out, I can say that doing sport in a good condition without stress is a good thing. When I have fallen in burn-out the most difficult was to find a balance to do enough activities without making me more tired. The most difficulty was to give up, for a while, the activities I regularly did. That takes time to understand. What is most important is to do activities without stress. To listen to how our body is reacting. What is most challenging is to feel that over the months, this special tiring of the burn-out is going away. No drugs, no alcohol, good food, self-empowerment and receiving the environment as help even when it’s hard.

Hi, I go for a 10 km run every morning with Hendrix, my black lab mix, I stop and do a few yoga poses to stretch things out and I do pull ups on branches of trees for strength training and in summer, we finish with a swim!

After serious illness I found using a stopwatch on my phone very helpful. I’d stand for 5 min and sit for 15, and kept on increasing the standing and decrease sitting e.g sit 10 min up for 50. And so on
