Burnout is a serious problem for divorce professionals. Think of the instructions you’re given before every flight – in the case of an emergency place your own oxygen mask on first and then help others. Same principle applies here – if you don’t take care of yourself, you’re actually less likely to be able to effectively help others.
Here are some tips for avoiding (or recovering) from burnout.
- Shift your focus periodically. Take a break to clear your head and regenerate your enthusiasm.
- Build healthy habits. Focus on your strengths, your values – create practices which allow you to be your best.
- Create boundaries to protect yourself. Having a balance in your life between several activities which challenge your brain in different ways is a great start to having that work-life balance.
- Find some rewarding activities to engage in that stimulate another part of your brain on the outside.
These should all help you keep yourself centered so you can, as a CDC® Certified Divorce Coach, be that thinking partner and advocate that your client not only needs but deserves. Becoming a divorce coach is one of the most fulfilling and satisfying career paths you can embark on.
If your single most important goal is to support people going through a divorce in not only making their own decisions but making the best possible decisions, they can for themselves, their family, and their future, then becoming a CDC® Certified Divorce Coach might be for you.
