How To Identify and Address Burnout

Lifehacker has a great write up on burn out.

Most demanding careers practically guarantee stress, but if you’re feeling completely exhausted, unable to concentrate, or as though you’re neglecting your own well-being, you may be suffering from burnout. It’s a very real condition that’s easy to ignore, but you can detect and fix the problem if you know what to do.

The first step is to identify it. Some examples:

  • “A generally negative attitude, often paired with the feeling that nothing is going to work out.
  • A lack of interest in social activities and being with others.
  • Difficulty with healthy habits like exercise, diet, and regular sleep.
  • Constant exhaustion.”

The next step is addressing burnout. Lifehacker provides 4 tips with further details:

  • “Cut Off the Source of the Burnout
  • Be Unusual
  • Be Heathy
  • Be Patient”

It’s a really great write about burnout. I highly recommend it.
