What to expect
Burnout is a combination of a mental and physical state of the individual, which was first described in 1974 as Becoming exhausted by making excessive demands on energy, strength or resources. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies burnout as an “occupational phenomenon”, which is related with feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion, increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job, and reduced professional efficacy.
Everyone is susceptible. While certain types of personalities are more prone than others, under specific circumstances burnout can evolve without ever being noticed initially. The top five fundamental drivers for burnout are one’s emotional state, physical condition, working capacity, self-esteem, and relationship with others.
Absolutely. It is completely within your control to understand how your daily routines and work-life balance affect your performance, drive, and energy for keeping up across all fronts. It takes small and easy steps to build out your life in the right way to support your true aspirations and desires.
The trickiest part of burnout development is precisely the fact people usually are not aware of the ongoing process. Asking yourself the right questions, understanding what and why is bothering you are good first steps for avoiding burnout altogether. The earlier you start improving your work-life balance, the greater the chances of developing sustainable habits for becoming the best version of yourself, progressing professionally while truly enjoying everything your personal life has to offer.
