Are there any students out there that have tips for managing the feeling of burnout?
If you do, it would be great to hear them!

Going to the school gym and doing laps on the pool did it for me. Others, mostly the females hit the spa and/or yoga/pilates class. One tip I did learn was thatf I was going to take a break, I would take the rest of the day off. Working out and then going back to the books didn't work for me. You need to decompress and get a good nights sleep and then pick up where you left off the next day.

Working out at the gym really helped out, just go out and get all that stress out of you.  Try and take a break by doing something nice for yourself when you've just read a chapter in the book for one of your classes or an article.  Something I do, is stop for about 20 minues or so and do a hobby like crafting, or scrapbooking, or taking a short bike ride around the neighborhood.  One thing that I think gets people so burnt out is that they focus so much on the grades instead of how much they know.  Who is going to care a year after you graduate if you received a 100 or a 90 for that A grade?  For that matter, who cares if you even have a B+!!  It matters how much you know and how good a clinician you will be, not how well you take a test.  I sincerely hope this helps out, I've been fighting burnout for a little bit, as I took the long route to get into PT school with 3 years off in-between!
