We are all used to the idea of stress; it is now a recognised fact of life in many jobs. But burnout is different, and more serious.
Burnout is a reaction to prolonged and unremitting stress. It results in physical, emotional and mental exhaustion. Typically, this is accompanied by feelings of cynicism, a loss of interest in the job, self-doubt and doubts about the value of your work, loss of confidence, and feelings of overwhelm and helplessness.
If you see the signs in yourself then it's time to take urgent action. If you don't, the risks to your health increase. The longer you leave it the harder it will be to restore your normal levels of vitality and motivation.
This episode explains what to do if you are noticing the signs in yourself, and how to avoid burnout in the future.
