Whichever it may be, these 10 quotes will help you fight digital burnout. 

Here Are 10 Quotes to Insulate You and Your Team Against Digital Burnout!

1. "Nobody's perfect, so give yourself credit for everything you're doing right, and be kind to yourself when you struggle. " - Lori Deschene 

A huge part of burnout is becoming so incredibly overwhelmed, that our brains just short-circuit. Therefore, every single task becomes so much more difficult than it needs to be. So, as strange a remedy as it may sound, be easy on yourself! 

You're doing your best, which is all you can do.

2. "An activity that allows you to use your imagination is an antidote to burnout." - Jardin Dogan

Reproducing the same content over, and over, and over again can only lead to boredom - for both the creator and the viewer. Disrupt the normalcy that you work in, even just in the slightest way. Read a book, listen to music, watch a film. 

Find inspiration in even the most mundane things, and ideas are sure to start coming.

3. "If you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit." - Banksy

Though tempting at times, quitting is never a viable solution. Especially in digital marketing/media, keeping up with the ever-changing industry can be hard. But it is also oh-so-worth-it to persist. 

So take a step back, rest up, and try again.

4. "You can do anything as long as you have the passion, the drive, the focus, and the support." - Sabrina Bryan 

Passion is what drives us to want to do well, what motivates us in our day-to-day life, and what keeps the momentum going. 

Take the time to discover (or rediscover) your passions, whether they be related to your work or not. 

In doing so, only good things can happen. 

5. "Self-care is how you take your power back." - Lalah Delia

Being too hard on yourself is a recipe for burnout. In order to let the gears of your mind start turning, you have to be relaxed enough to do so. 

It's like trying to pack a car full well past its weight limit and expecting it to be able to go the speed limit. You have to "unpack" so to say, and allow yourself to relax in order to let your mind operate smoothly.  

6. "Write out everything when you're feeling sad... Do the opposite when you are in a great mood. Look for patterns about where, when, and why you are in this mood. I wrote this out on a post-it note and try to put myself back in those places when not feeling great." - Noah Kagan

When you feel down, maybe even due to spending too much time in the digital world, be sure to remember to grab a pen. The act of writing is actually good for your mental health

7. "If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door." - Milton Berle

Finding new ways to promote and be creative in the digital landscape can be tricky. It can be very tempting to just leave it hoping that things will just sort themselves out. 

But as tempting as it may be, the best thing to do is to find it within yourself to create your own opportunities to grow your brand.

8. "You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." - Martin Luther King Jr. 

A huge part of burnout is being overwhelmed with whatever task you're faced with. It seems almost impossible to climb "the whole staircase", but one step at a time is a wonderful way to combat feeling overwhelmed. 

There's always a learning curve in the digital world, but taking things slow and asking for digital marketing help from experts can help.

9. "Tough times never last, tough people do." - Robert Schuller 

You're tougher than you think! The period of burnout will pass, and things will start to slowly but surely fall into place and begin to click. 

10. "Ninety-nine percent of the time it’s not urgent and to create a culture where you are constantly plugged in and expected to be always-on is to create a culture of burnout." - Arianna Huffington 

Exactly as the quote says, it's important to take time away from digital devices and networks. Take time to smell the roses, so to say. The demand for being online can be extensive, and recognizing when to step away can be a vital sense to develop. 

Unplug and take the time for yourself in the real world, you deserve it.
