4 Ways to Recharge Your Body After Burnout

By taking back your health and properly maintaining your wellness, you can give your system the refresher it needs.

Dedicating too much time to your job and neglecting to take proper care of yourself often leads to burnout. Essentially, burnout is defined as physical and mental collapse due to overworking. This can negatively impact your immune system, emotional health and overall outlook on life. To get your body back to normal, you can start by rejuvenating your regular lifestyle habits. Neglecting to follow a normal sleep schedule, eating unhealthy foods and stressing isn't going to help you overcome burnout. By taking back your health and properly maintaining your wellness, however, you can give your system the refresh it needs.

Here are a four simple ways to recharge your body after experiencing burnout:

1. Stay Active
Physical activity certainly works wonders for the body. Not only does it promote mental clarity by reducing stress, depression and anxiety, but it can also boost your immune system. Make time for exercise, no matter how busy your work schedule may seem. Just don't overdo it and contribute to your burnout even further.

2. Prioritize a Normal Sleep Schedule
Following a normal sleep schedule is also critical to overcoming burnout and recharging your body. Prioritizing an adequate amount of rest gives your body the ability to rebuild itself after a hard day's work, preparing you for the following day. If you tend to take power naps throughout the day, now's a good time to stop. It could be impacting your ability to stay asleep throughout the night.

3. Reconsider Your Current Diet
Nothing's easier than breezing through the drive-thru window after a hectic work day. But that doesn't make it OK for your health – fast food is loaded with sodium, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol and sugars that can deteriorate your wellness over time. If you tend to choose this option because it's quick and easy, start meal prepping in advance with delicious and nutritious natural ingredients. 

4. Try our BarleyMax
Feeling burnt out may drive you to drink lots of coffee. While the caffeine can help keep you feel energized and focused, it can also increase your anxiety and lead to muscle spasms and overall restlessness. To recharge your body naturally, we suggest you consider our BarleyMax. This organic juice concentrate is derived from young barley and alfalfa leaves, harvested at peak nutrition to provide the most powerful, living nutrition possible. Just mix it with water or your favorite fresh 100 percent juice for increased energy, a boosted immune system, improved circulation and more.

    Thank you for this article. Life is busy and most of the time we do feel “burnt out” Hallelujah Diet Barley Max is really great to help with that energy level.

  2. This is great information! As a working Mom it is easy to feel burnt out. This is a good reminder to make the 4 suggestions top priorities in my day.

    Sleep certainly is important. I made the room I sleep in darker recently to help my body produce melatonin. Last night I slept straight through without waking up once! When I woke up in the morning, I felt well rested.

    Some sources encourage napping during the day. It makes sense to me as this article states that naps can interfere with sleeping at night.

    I did not know that caffeine can contribute to anxiety. Good to know.

  4. What do your recommend to reverse adrenal insufficiency?

    This Blog have some great information. We can get burned out in so many ways from a daily habit of living. So glad we can recharge with the right thing as the blog mention here from staying active with some good exercising each day or at least three to four days a week. I love to walk and going swimming is good too. Getting enough sleep at night is helpful as well for our bodies, along with all this we need to make to eat a good balance and helpful diet. This was some good points for us after getting burned out.

    Getting burnt out can sneak up on you in a sly way. Thanks for this blog to help us realize how important sleep, diet and staying active are in avoiding the burned out state. It is so much about the balance we need to keep. As one of the previous people stated sleeping in a darkened room does make a huge difference. I am fully aware of the adverse effects of caffeine in our system but I am still attached to my morning coffee.

  7. I crashed and burned this teaching year. I resigned after 2 months because as a support leader I was pulled in so many directions. I started binging on fast food, not sleeping well, feeling anxious and depressed and lost my walking routine. I had to act fast because my health would have suffered. I am transitioning to a better job environment and I returned to healthy cooking. This article is a great reminder that we must take care of ourselves. No job should ever take over your life. It is not worth compromising your physical health and mental well being.

      How true, Deb. When people and marketers seem to be pushing us beyond our limits, we must know our boundaries and take charge of our own lives. In this fast-paced world, it is very easy to lose balance. When our prayer time, exercise time and sleep time are suffering, it is up to us to adjust, and get back to our priorities.

      • “When our prayer time, exercise time and sleep time are suffering, it is up to us to adjust, and get back to our priorities” is so true.

        I had no idea how far down I had gone until I was hospitalized for 3 days and told I had a TIA.

        I am trying to get back on track.

  8. Dear Kay,
    Usually the adrenals get exhausted as a result of long-term low thyroid. Supporting the thyroid with iodine often takes the stress off the adrenals and allows them to rebuild. Of course being fully on the Hallelujah Diet is important too.
    Here is an article by Hallelujah Diet scientist about iodine:

  9. Burnout is fairly common in today’s stressed society. Taking time for yourself, making sure to get enough rest, and feeding your body more nutritious foods can all make a huge difference.

  10. Unfortunately, it costs over $30 to get one little can of Barley Max to Canada.

    • Melody Hord July 2, 2021

      Hi DHW,
      There is that $30. shipping fee for orders under $350. retail. Perhaps you could order 3 months worth of product at a time so you only pay the fee every few months. As long as the product stays sealed, it stays fresh tasting when it is opened.
      I have not found a juiced powder I likely nearly as much as BarleyMax. I love taking a tablespoon full in water at least once a day. By reading all the reviews, it definitely is an amazing product.
      Other products I keep on hand from Hallelujah Diet are D3-K2 and Magnesium Complex. Supplements can make such a huge difference in one’s health.

    I believe we all feel burnt out from time to time. The suggestion for sleep is so true. As a Mom of two small kids I have times of very little sleep and I can see a huge difference in how I feel. My body lets me know real quick I have to sleep to keep feeling strong.

  12. Annette Whitworth July 13, 2021

    Thanks for some great reminders. I hadto stop and think about ALL of these 4 points. Im very thankful for each of them. I do take my barley and I think I might increase it to take another spoon in the middle of the day too. Again thanks
