How do you get over/prevent burnout? I can’t even take one day of PTO without feeling like I’m letting my whole team down. Even when I’m not technically assigned to something. I am having such a hard time being productive because I haven’t stopped in 4+ months. Help ☹️

You have to be self disciplined and just take it. Be reasonable in timing, but just take it. Remember end of day it's just a job, you can and the job can always be replaced. Your health cannot.

I’m feeling the same way, I’m having trouble bringing myself to even ask for one day off but I’ve been going nonstop for way too long and am exhausted and not nearly as productive anymore

You just have to remember that the company gave you the PTO for a reason. The way that I prevent burnout is working in extremes. So for a certain amount of time, I do nothing but work. Then for a certain amount of time, I literally do everything but work. For me that works. To prevent burnout, you HAVE to structure the balance that works for you, communicate it clearly to your team, and then implement. It’ll be difficult at first, but your team will appreciate your balance over your burnout. Believe me!

I recently took extended time off, which was my first multiday vacation since January. I quickly realized that I had been compartmentalizing my humanity and emotion since January in order to manage workload in the COVID environment. It felt amazing to disconnect from work and regain a feeling of humanity and life. How do others avoid falling into this trap?

On the bench, and on PTO effectively until 10/1. No project lined up because apparently it's too far in the future for anyone to staff. I'll be leaving the firm before the next FYE.
