Calendar shopping? Seriously, it works.
My ritual to avoid burnout — a new calendar. It may seem ridiculous to you, but nothing does it for me like walking down the calendar aisle at my local Office Supplies store and starting fresh with a brand new calendar.
It is a whole process. I have to touch every one, picture it in my life, in my bag, on my desk. Once I choose the right one, the ritual begins.
I go home, get my markers and highlighters out, and go for it. I reorganize my time, my appointments, my availability, my connection to my life. I do this a couple of times a year (at least).
My silly ritual absolutely does it for me. It allows me to take a new step, a new lease on life into the next chapter. Then I naturally recommit to my workouts, my nutrition, my rest days, my playdates, my whole life in balance.
If I don’t listen to the signs of burnout (and sometimes I don’t) I usually get to a point of pain, I hurt, sometimes so bad I can’t even move. It stops me. Then the break is forced. And that is never fun.
Find your thing.

Get really familiar with your signs, your signals of entering Burnout Lane. Avoid it at all costs. If you don’t listen and look for the signals, they will get louder and louder, and eventually take over.
After many years in practice and at least 100,000+ adjustments served, my experience unfolds many truths. This is probably the number one doozer.
