I recently saw a fundraiser praise an achievement of hers at a large charity, crediting her 'every weekend spent since September' on the project. It's such a shame that so many feel that time spent not working translates to help robbed from their charity's beneficiaries. Realistically it just results in quick burnout, your mental health compromised and (paradoxically) an inability to make an impact in the long-run.
What are some of your tips on how to beat burnout in the sector?
A wise campaigner (Clare Lucas) once said, although it's tempting to tell all your friends about your charity when you see them in the pub—don't. If talking about your charity is you 9-to-5 job, you're just allowing yourself to work overtime. Don't be fooled when it's midnight and your mind is still racing in bed.
So how do you keep the balance? Especially while we're remote? Keen to hear your thoughts 👇
