According to the World Health Organization (WHO), occupational burnout is a syndrome resulting from chronic work-related stress, with symptoms characterized by ‘feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion, increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to work and reduced professional efficacy’.
Put more simply it means psychological stress and fatigue. So how can we learn to listen to the warning signs? How can we benefit from our past experiences, and so protect ourselves from falling ill? The good news is there are measures we can put in place and behaviours we can learn that will support us, which is especially important during times when we experience excessive demands in the workplace and in our personal lives. Please join us to discuss how we can try to bring some calm and a sense of order back into our lives.
