Signs and Symptoms of Burn Out

Burnout is when you are in a state of mental, emotional, or physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. You may be feeling overwhelmed that you cannot catch a break and the work keeps piling, emotionally drained, and unable to meet those constant demand deadlines. As this continues, you may be feeling unmotivated and too tired or distracted to move forward. Burnout makes you less productive, leaving you feeling resentful and helpless, and close to just giving up. These are negative signs and effects of burnout that can occur at home, in schoolwork, or even in social life.

Because of the consequences, you should know what signs and symptoms to look out for throughout your daily routine. Some common signs of burnout mentally, emotionally, and physically include a sense of failure and self-doubt, withdrawing from responsibilities, decreased feeling of satisfaction in your work, taking out frustrations on family or co-workers, and self-isolating from others.


Stress Relieving Activities

Dealing with burnout requires the “Three R” approach:

  • Recognize. Watch for the warning signs of burnout.

  • Reverse. Undo the damage by seeking support and managing stress.

  • Resilience. Build your resilience to stress by taking care of your physical and emotional health.

You can start proactively investigating burnout and acting by limiting interactions with negative people, making new friends with co-workers or finding a cause of community that is meaningful to you, and reaching out and spending time with your favorite people.

The next steps can be taking some time off and finding a balance and value in your work.

And you can reevaluate your priories, get more sleep, set hard boundaries, relax and take frequent breaks, and take time off your technology to find a new hobby.
