You probably heard a phrase “occupational burnout” more than once. The truth is, this is far more than just a cliché, and since quite recently – a syndrome. Before burnout was not easy to come by, while these days it’s an essential part of our life. The hectic pace of life is to blame: we are compelled to work incessantly, effectively exhausting our emotional and physical resources.
So what’s a burnout anyway? Basically, it’s chronic stress at its final stage. It’s a state of physical and emotional exhaustion that leads to complete apathy, disappointment with life and yourself. This condition certainly requires proper treatment in order for a person to live a full life and function normally.
