How can you avoid burnout?

  • Reward yourself- recognize what you have done well: Measure your improvement and give yourself some credit if you have reached your goal. Sit back and relax for a bit and reflect on all of your hard work.
  • Set your focus on very specific goals or the reason that you are learning English: What exactly do you want to do? Do you want to be able to lead a meeting in English? Give a presentation? Read a book? Once you have set your goals, put blinders on. Don’t worry about other English goals. Focus on one specific goal to avoid burnout.
  • Take a day off: Forget about your goals for a day. Hang out and put your feet up! Maybe hang out with people from your home country and don’t speak English.
  • Set realistic expectations: Push yourself, but be reasonable. Make sure you get the right balance between pushing yourself and being kind to yourself.
