Burnout isn’t just another way to say “I’m tired.” According to the World Health Organization, burnout is now a medical diagnosis in the International Classification of Diseases.
Doctors can now diagnose patients who are constantly exhausted and have negative attitudes towards their job with burnout. Does this sound like you? Let’s delve into why you might be experiencing these symptoms.
Are you constantly trying to keep your head above all of your meetings, deadlines, and daily tasks?
If your to-do list makes you dread coming into the office, it’s a great time to rethink your commitments. Matching your workload to your capacity is the best way to effectively conquer your tasks without the cost of your mental health.
Lack of Community
You’re constantly surrounded by people, whether they’re your colleagues, your bosses, or your clients. Take a moment to reevaluate the individuals you surround yourself with.
Are they supportive during the ups and downs of work-life? Do you feel welcomed and a part of the rest of the office? If the answers to these questions are in the negatives, it could be a factor in your burnout.
Let’s face it. We humans love rewards. Whether the rewards are intrinsic or extrinsic, it can feel meaningless to work tirelessly at your job without any appreciation.
A simple sign of recognition does wonders for morale. If you’re feeling taken for granted, uncompensated, or unrecognized, it could be a chance to ask your employer for feedback or a possible raise.
