Causes: Too many hours Working a job you hate Working for a terrible leader Not enough rest Too much stress Lack of support system Ethics / morals / values don't align to your organization Don't get to make your own choices Bored or not challenged enough Taking on too much at once So with that, what exactly is burnout? Signs of burnout: Feeling tired / exhausted Not wanting to eat Easily getting sick Anxiety is heightened Having a hard time sleeping Difficulty focusing Irritability Easy to get angry or annoyed Feeling sad or depressed Being overly negative / can't find the positive Losing joy / happiness in things / activities / people you used to find it in Withdrawing Low performance / productivity Becoming obsessive over things / activities What to do: Take time off if you can Re-balance workload Talk to your leader - ask for options Get some movement in on a regular basis Sleep, sleep, sleep Add in more healthy eating options / vitamins Try meditation Engage in activities that relax you Do some breath work Get help Chat with friends, family and co-workers more frequently Distance yourself from negative people Work on projects that fuel your purpose Merch (you can get 15% off using code CAREERTALKPOD15): careertalkswag.com Paypal: paypal.me/stephdennis13 Anchor: https://anchor.fm/careertalk Amazon Wishlist: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3T3HCEGR737Y7?ref_=wl_share Steph's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/stephdennis13/ Pod Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/careertalkpodcast/ Steph's Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/stephdennis13 Pod Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/careertalkpodcast For show notes go to: http://stephdennis13.com/category/careertalk/ To work together (resume reviews, career coaching, etc.): listentocareertalk.com For the Google Survey: https://goo.gl/forms/PToleX38QgQ4EPaz1 We are written, produced, hosted and edited by Stephanie Dennis You’re awesome!!
