Burnout: 7 Behaviors to Watch Out For
Posted on: 29 janvier 2017, by : Basile

There’s stress, and then there’s burnout.

We all experience stress on the job from time to time, but how do you know when you’re headed for something more serious?

Burnout is defined as a state of physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion, and it is not to be taken lightly. It’s been linked to high blood pressure, heart disease and depression, so it’s important to know some of the warning signs — and what to do about them.

1. You get sick… a lot. 

Physical exhaustion can lead to your immune system being depleted and not functioning as well. If you seem to catch every single cold and flu that goes around the office (or your kid’s school) it could be that your body is trying to tell you to slow down and take a break. It may also be a symptom of the fact that you’re working so much you don’t have time to take care of yourself, eating well and exercising enough.

2. You feel disengaged at work or procrastinate excessively.
