    TPJ 102: 10 Ways To Get Out Of Survival Mode

    TPJ 102: 10 Ways To Get Out Of Survival Mode

    Are you finding yourself in survival mode, feeling like you are running on empty and worried that you might be leading yourself to burnout? If you’re not sure where you fall on the burnout spectrum, go check out last week’s episode on the 10 signals that you might be in survival mode. 
     
    Now that we know the signs, it’s time to get practical and do something about it. 
     
    What we really want to do is get our expectations to meet our level of support, and work on both sides of that equation. On one hand we need to be realistic about our expectations and in some ways lower the bar. But we can also work on increasing our level of support or perhaps reduce our level of responsibilities. 
     
    Let’s dig in and talk about how we can conserve energy and recharge so that we can push ourselves out of survival mode and thrive.
     
    [02:22] #1 - Simplify everything
    [02:56] #2 - Use more screen time
    [04:05] #3 - Lower your learning expectations
    [05:03] #4 - Lower your presence expectations
    [06:31] #5 - Write out helpful scripts
    [10:11] #6 - Ask for help (and accept it)
    [12:11] #7 - Let people in
    [13:29] #8 - Prioritize self-care
    [15:20] #9 - Positive self-talk
    [16:50] #10 - Enlist your children's help

Thank you

Thank you for creating content that inspires me. You have helped me in my journey of healing and making connections with my kids and husband. I am so glad I found your podcast. It has almost been a year since I have discovered you. I find myself going back to podcasts that are on areas I want to grow or that I am struggling in. I am slowly getting to know myself better and having a connection with me. Getting out of survival mode and being present in my life.
