Burnout



Burnout is a state of physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion that emerges from a prolonged period of stress or external demands. When we fail to listen to or are unable to respond to the limits of our internal warnings that we are doing too much, we reach “burnout.” While general symptoms of exhaustion are usually present, the most notable symptom of feeling burnt out is a loss of motivation, especially to complete work or maintain a relationship that was previously important or meaningful to us. This usually stems from feeling that our previous intense efforts have not accomplished the desired results or are now pointless. Fortunately, burnout is not a permanent state, but it takes some care and intention to replenish our spirits and revive.
