It is true that we never really know how people are feeling unless they open up and allow us in. From a young age, we are taught to get on with things, never stopping to think what truly makes us happy. Many of us follow a path that is expected of us by the world around us - you go to school, you get a job, you have children, and you provide for your family. Is it any wonder that there are so many people being diagnosed with mental health problems, lack of energy, low mood, and burnout, given these high expectations?
Everyone is affected by the pressures of modern life differently. There are single parents struggling to put food on the table, as well as people working all hours to keep the wolf from the door. We are in the midst of a cost of living crisis, and this is sure to have a knock-on effect on each of our individual sense of self.
Burnout can manifest itself in all manner of ways, but we first need to identify what it is exactly. Burnout is often defined as ‘physical, emotional or mental exhaustion, accompanied by decreased motivation, lowered performance, and negative attitudes towards oneself and others’. There are common signs that indicate something is wrong including feelings of fatigue, headaches, changes to your diet or sleep patterns, and a lack of interest in what you are doing. Burnout tends to be in response to a specific environment or situation, so there are changes you can make to address the balance if you can identify what is causing you to feel this way. Your work-life balance being out of sync is one of the biggest factors in today’s society, so what steps can we take to improve our physical, emotional and mental wellbeing?
The best advice is not to ignore it if you feel like you are going to crash and burn. Stop and take a moment to think about the underlying cause for the burnout. To find balance in your life, you first need to understand it. Only then can you begin your journey towards healing and recovery.
