The Real Reason For Burnout

by Time Management

In this episode, I share with you the number 1 factor that I believe leads to burnout and clinical burnout syndrome and give you a few insights on what to look out for.

In a later video, I will dive deeper into prevention & recovery based on my personal experiences and studies.

If you are unsure what burnout is, then here is a definition provided by mentalhealth-uk(dot)org: “Burnout is a state of physical and emotional exhaustion. It can occur when you experience long-term stress in your job, or when you have worked in a physically or emotionally draining role for a long time.
Common signs of burnout:
-Feeling tired or drained most of the time
-Feeling helpless, trapped and/or defeated
-Feeling detached/alone in the world
-Having a cynical/negative outlook
-Procrastinating and taking longer to get things done
-Feeling overwhelmed

When asked to identify the symptoms of burnout, 85% of UK adults correctly identified symptoms of burnout, while 68% mistakenly identified symptoms of anxiety.”

I’d like to add that I make a difference between burnout as described here and clinical burnout syndrome, which is clinically diagnosed and often comes with long-term side effects/health issues such as cardiovascular diseases, gut issues, or muscular issues.
