Burnout, which is a state of physical and emotional exhaustion, can be a result of experiencing long-term stress in your job, such as overwork, or of having worked in a physically or emotionally draining role for a long time. There are careers that carry a high risk for burnout, such as nursing, social work, and the medical profession. Business owner burnout is also common.
Burnout can also occur in relationships, for example by being a carer or being in an emotionally challenging situation for a long time. A certain personal background can make you more vulnerable to burnout, and there are personality traits that can do the same.
It can also occur when your efforts have failed to produce the results that you expected, and you feel deeply disillusioned as a consequence. Burnout can occur in relationships or at work.
What are common symptoms of Burnout?
You might be experiencing burnout if you:
Feel exhausted much of the time.
Feel overwhelmed by your responsibilities.
Feel that every day is a bad day.
Feel no joy or interest in your work or life, or even feel depressed by it.
Engage in escapist behaviors, such as excessive eating, drinking, distractions etc.
Have less patience with others than you used to.
Feel hopeless about your life or work.
Experience physical symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, sleeplessness, or heart palpitations. (Make sure that you see a physician about these to rule out other causes!)
Studies show that people who experience burnout early in their life or career often find it easier to recover than people who go through it later in life. However, it’s important that you know how to recover effectively, whatever stage you’re at.
These are just a few of the many symptoms that you can experience with burnout, each person is unique and experiences burnout differently.
