Exercise. Simple answer to stress related problems.

Whenever I'm just not feeling like working, or a problem is running me in circles, I'll go do some physical activity. I have biking, walking, yoga, and weight lifting as stand-bys. Instead of wasting time before I screen I'll go do some sports.

This both improves my physical condition and brings my mental condition back to a calm state. From here I'm a bit refreshed and willing to tackle the problem again.

I think if you keep the stress down on a continue basis, the long-term burn-out feeling may not come. Of course, once at the burn-out level, I don't have a good idea how to fix it -- I'm addressing mine by major career changes.
