   Burnout is a psychological term for the experience
    of long-term exhaustion and diminished interest

   "a general wearing out from the pressures of work"
WHAT IS BURNOUT?
Burnout is a term
 which is frequently
used to describe the
    emotional and
       physical
     exhaustion
   experienced by
  people as a direct
 result of excessive
study or work related
 stress. Burnout can
  cause significant
physical, emotional,
 psychological, and
       spiritual
 damage to people.

DEALING WITH BURNOUT: THE "THREE R"
APPROACH
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STRESS AND BURNOUT

    Burnout may be the result of unrelenting
 stress, but it isn’t the same as too much stress.
   Stress, by and large, involves too much: too
 many pressures that demand too much of you
    physically and psychologically. Stressed
   people can still imagine, though, that if they
  can just get everything under control, they’ll
                      feel better.

  Burnout, on the other hand, is about not enough. Being
  burned out means feeling empty, devoid of motivation,
  and beyond caring. People experiencing burnout often
 don’t see any hope of positive change in their situations.
     burnout is being all dried up. One other difference
 between stress and burnout: While you’re usually aware
   of being under a lot of stress, you don’t always notice
                 burnout when it happens.
Stress                         Burnout

• Emotions are overreactive    • Emotions are blunted

• Produces urgency and         • Produces helplessness and
  hyperactivity                  hopelessness

• Loss of energy               • Loss of motivation, ideals,
                                 and hope

• Leads to anxiety disorders   • Leads to detachment and
                                 depression

• Primary damage is physical   • Primary damage is emotional

• May kill you prematurely     • May make life seem not
                                 worth living
CAUSES OF BURNOUT

 There are many causes of burnout. In many cases,
  burnout stems from the job. But anyone who feels
  overworked and undervalued is at risk for burnout –
  from the hardworking office worker who hasn’t had
  a vacation or a raise in two years to the frazzled
  stay-at-home mom struggling with the heavy
  responsibility of taking care of three kids, the
  housework, and her aging father.
 But burnout is not caused solely by stressful work
  or too many responsibilities. Other factors
  contribute to burnout, including your lifestyle and
  certain personality traits. What you do in your
  downtime and how you look at the world can play
  just as big of a role in causing burnout as work or
  home demands.

subtle(slight) at first, but they get worse and worse as time goes on.

BURNOUT PREVENTION TIPS
Start the day with a relaxing ritual. Rather jumping out of bed as soon as
you wake up, spend at least fifteen minutes meditating, writing in your journal,
doing gentle stretches, or reading something that inspires you.

Adopt healthy eating, exercising, and sleeping habits. When you eat
right, engage in regular physical activity, and get plenty of rest, you have the
energy and resilience to deal with life’s hassles and demands.

Set boundaries. Don’t overextend yourself. Learn how to say ―no‖ to requests
on your time. If you find this difficult, remind yourself that saying ―no‖ allows you
to say ―yes‖ to the things that you truly want to do.

Take a daily break from technology. Set a time each day when you
completely disconnect. Put away your laptop, turn off your phone, and stop
checking email.

Nourish your creative side. Creativity is a powerful antidote to burnout. Try
something new, start a fun project, or resume a favorite hobby. Choose activities
that have nothing to do with work.

Learn how to manage stress. When you’re on the road to burnout, you
may feel helpless. But you have a lot more control over stress than you may
think. Learning how to manage stress can help you regain your balance.
Coping with job burnout
   Dealing with Job Stress
    In order to avoid job burnout, it’s important to reduce and manage stress
    at work. Start by identifying what factors are stressful. Then you can take
    steps to deal with the problem, either by changing your work
    environment or changing the way you deal with the stressor.
   Actively address problems. Take a proactive approach – rather than a
    passive one – to issues in your workplace. You’ll feel less helpless if you
    assert yourself and express your needs. If you don’t have the authority or
    resources to solve the problem, talk to a superior.
   Clarify your job description. Ask your boss for an updated description
    of your job duties and responsibilities. Point out things you’re expected to
    do that are not part of your job description and gain a little leverage by
    showing that you’ve been putting in work over and above the parameters
    of your job.
   Ask for new duties. If you’ve been doing the exact same work for a long
    time, ask to try something new: a different grade level, a different sales
    territory, a different machine.
   Take time off. If burnout seems inevitable, take a complete break from
    work. Go on vacation, use up your sick days, ask for a temporary leave-
    of-absence—anything to remove yourself from the situation. Use the time
    away to recharge your batteries and take perspective.
