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.
