Don't Quit Yet...

Experiencing burnout at the work place is common amongst many individuals. However, one has difficulty recognizing the symptoms of burnout. Burnout is a 3 step process: 1. The individual detects a discrepancy between the demands and resources of the job. 2. The individual begins to experience the emergence of emotional strain, including fatigue and anxiety. 3. The individual attains a point of coping defensively at work, where true burnout is occurring and the effectiveness of the individual is significantly decreased or stopped. It's important to take a look at ones lifestyle, including nutrition and exercise activites. As well as looking into other areas that balance an individuals life including spiritual development, family activities, and the positive use of recreational time. BALANCE is a must in today's society. Therefore, implementing self-care should be a priority. If you feel that you may be experiencing the 3 step process associated with burnout implement self-care immediately and seek professional help.
