What is Burnout Syndrome?
Burnout is a state of physical and emotional exhaustion. It can occur when you experience long-term stress or disappointment in your life. It is a syndrome that can creep up on you and disguise itself under the veil of stress and can manifest itself in any field of our life. Whether emanating from personal or professional aspects of our lives, Burnout Syndrome is usually hard to pinpoint, as its symptoms can be quite common and so are sometimes brushed over by many of us.
How do you know if you have Burnout Syndrome?
If you feel exhausted most of the time, find no joy, satisfaction, interest or pleasure in your life or in the most serious of cases if you experience physical conditions such as chest pains, shortness of breath, sleeplessness, or heart palpitations then you could have Burnout Syndrome.
Below you will find a self-test questionnaire that can help clarify whether you do have Burnout Syndrome in some shape or form.
Burnout self-test questionnaire:
- Do you feel that every day at work is a bad day?
- Do you feel like you have no energy and are exhausted most of the time?
- Do you find that you get no joy or satisfaction in your work, or even feel depressed by it?
- Do you feel overwhelmed by your responsibilities?
- Do you engage in escapist behaviors, such as excess drinking?
- Do you have less patience with others than you used to?
- Do you feel hopeless about your life or work, like you have no control?
- Do you catch yourself feeling frustrated and agitated most of the time?
- Do you experience physical symptoms such as chest pains, shortness of breath, sleeplessness, or heart palpitations? (Make sure that you see a physician about these first!)
If you have one or more of the above symptoms, then you may well be experiencing Burnout Syndrome!
If you ignore Burnout, it will only become much worse and cause you further harm down the line, so it is important that you begin recovery as soon as possible.
Conventional rest is not the most effective way to deal with Burnout Syndrome. Simply resting in your home may help with the physical aspect of Burnout but still it does not help with the emotional part. If anything, chances are you could become even more depressed. What you need is, first and foremost, a change of scenery. Secondly, a healthy diet and finally some wellness treatments and activities that all come together to jolt your metabolism and mindset into the recovery phase that is required to rewire your emotional, mental and physical state.
