Burnout is something that most people deal with but ignore to ‘get the job done’.
World Health Organisation (WHO) states that burnout is identified by three specific characteristics:
- feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion
- increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job
- reduced professional efficacy
Burnout often happens over time and is a gradual shift in your mental state. Therefore, it is important to recognise when you are overwhelmed so that you can take appropriate action.
Today, we share six slight changes you can make in your life to self-correct when burnout is creeping in.
