Almost everyone is at the point is fatigued. Between the chaotic election season, the global pandemic and the eight months in lockdown, everyone is tired of staying at home or being anxious about the risks of Covid-19.
Entrepreneurs may feel extreme crisis fatigue due to the Covid-19 restrictions and regulations in California – especially surrounding shopping and businesses. It begs the question of how business owners cope with crisis fatigue while managing their business.
Keep a standard routine
While the pandemic causes irregularities in most residents’ schedules, employers must stick to their routines. They have to set an example for their staff members and also remain productive. The right routine can also boost your physical and mental health during a period of unrest.
Along with a routine, business owners can take a few minutes out of their workday to be mindful of their mood. All you need to do is to disconnect from your work and recharge yourself to a better mindset. It significantly reduces stress and often boosts creativity – which is helpful if you are approaching your company in new ways.
Implement a support system
Whether it’s your staff, a business partner or your family, make sure you have an outlet of support for yourself. You do not want to take on the burden of managing your business during a crisis alone. You can even use your support system as a way to develop new ideas for tackling declining customers and Covid-19 limitations.
The most important tip for crisis fatigue is to recognize it’s normal. If you are running a business, you will feel extremely frustrated by the restriction and new regulations you must follow. However, you will get past this period and grow stronger for it.
