Understanding Burnout

Burnout is more than just feeling tired at the end of a long workday. It is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by prolonged stress and overwhelm. When left unaddressed, burnout can significantly impact your overall well-being, job performance, and personal life.

Recognizing the signs of burnout early is crucial for preventing it from escalating. Some common symptoms include:

  • Persistent fatigue and lack of energy
  • Decreased satisfaction and engagement at work
  • Feelings of cynicism and detachment from responsibilities
  • Reduced productivity and effectiveness
  • Physical symptoms such as headaches, muscle tension, or stomach issues
