Career Burnout Symptoms  

  • Disengagement: Over-engagement is a symptom of high-stress levels. Going to sleep and waking up thinking about a problem or a deadline is a perfect example of over-engagement. When you start to disengage with your work by ignoring or avoiding it, burnout warning bells should start ringing.
  • Helplessness: Stress usually manifests as a sense of urgency, often resulting in hyperactivity. Anyone facing perpetual deadlines knows the feeling. Burnout, however, is characterised by helplessness and hopelessness. The feeling that nothing you do is going to have any effect on your situation or progress your workload.
  • Blunted emotions: When under stress, you may find that your emotions are exaggerated and more difficult to control. You may become angry or upset far easier than usual. Blunted emotions are a symptom of burnout. You may feel that you do not have the energy to react appropriately to situations, or that you are unable to feel excited or worried at all.


Burnout is Preventable

Unlike other physical or mental health issues, burnout symptoms have the potential to be managed, prevented and even reversed before any serious intervention is needed.

How to Recover from Burnout at Work

  • Seek Support: Whether from a co-worker or manager, talking about the problem and seeking advice is the first step to finding a solution. Your company may have mental health assistance available or measures that you can take to get back on track. Evaluate all your options.
  • Book Time Off: Sometimes taking time off work is the only way to give yourself time to re-evaluate your priorities and get to the root of your stresses. Make a conscious decision to use this time to reflect on your situation and not simply evade it. Find out how to strategically book leave in 2019 to optimise your time off.
  • Slow Down: Feelings of being out of control, and the idea that everything is under severe time-pressure, are common symptoms of long-term stress. Take a few minutes each day to practice mindfulness and focus your mind on the tasks in your control.
  • Ask for more flexibility: Studies show that employees are willing to exchange a pay increase for the chance to work more flexible hours. With a huge shift towards businesses becoming more agile, the growth of remote working, and an increasing amount of co-working and flexible workspace options around the world, more companies are starting to introduce flexible working hours to reduce commuting time and increase happiness.
