Stressed? 5 Simple Ways to Prevent Burnout | SUCCESS Magazine Blog

I just had my voicetested via a new technology called Kijini, which analyzes the tone of your voice for personality traits and nutritional deficiencies (pretty amazing!). My voice indicated that I’m deficient in lutein and B-vitamins—both easy fixes. The personality portion, though, revealed this: “You spread yourself too thin.” Well, that’s no surprise, I thought—who doesn’t? But how do we fix that?

Most modern success stories read like adaptations of Greek myths. Our role models are remarkable demigods like Oprah, Tony Robbins and Beyoncé—we admire and study them with awe, aiming high and taking our own leaps as they lead the way. The entrepreneur or career rock star is the hero, on a journey built from accomplishing half a dozen amazing feats and still fitting in Pilates before dinner. Accomplishments like these are our new currency and our status symbols.

While we strive to be our happiest and healthiest, we also reach for financial success, achieved by longhours and hard work. As we reach for our “best life,” we aim for work-life balance and feel bad when we don’t feel we have achieved it.
