Life is one big rush. Weekends only last so long and the work on your desk just keeps piling up and up … You probably feel more tired each week and you hope and pray that the following week’s leave, which you diligently saved for, will boost your energy levels that you so desperately need. The question however is, will it work, or have you reached the point where burnout is waiting for you on the horizon?
Stress is not something unknown to anyone. It has been a part of us since the beginning of man and we probably owe our survival as a species to our stress reaction. This might all be good and well but the 21st century with all of its challenges has changed so much that our natural stress reactions often lead to discomfort and burnout rather than protecting us. We can definitely not depend on our natural programming anymore but should rather find ways to manage the current challenges proactively.
When people experience emotional exhaustion, it can make them feel emotionally fatigued and tired. Although people do not always recognize the early warning signs, these feelings usually develop over a long period.
If left untreated it can have significant consequences for someone’s daily life as well as their relationships and behaviour.
Emotional exhaustion has physical as well as emotional consequences that can influence a person’s behaviour. These symptoms can accumulate over time with repeated stress, although people often do not recognize the early warning signs.
To be emotionally exhausted is not something anyone should feel ashamed about. It occurs more often than most people realize. It means that you only need new tools which will enable you to grab life and its challenges by the horns.
To be mindful of the symptoms of emotional burnout in yourself and others is extremely important so that someone can start to take the necessary steps to feel better early on.
