EPISODE 26: How to avoid burnout in the missions world
In this episode we discuss how to avoid burnout in the missions world. We also answer a listener's question about what to do if your pastor doesn't think you're ready for a mission trip, but you do.
>> If we're not careful we can burn ourselves out, even if we're doing something that we're passionate about. Passion alone is not enough to keep you going, and this is especially true for those in the world of missions. Here are a few practical ways to avoid burnout in the missions world. Listen to the episode to hear us elaborate on each point:
- Spend time with friends that aren’t passionate about the same thing as you
- Reflect on progress
- Serve from an overflow
- Be passionate in other areas of life
- Take a break
- Remind yourself that it won’t always be easy
