Have you ever experienced burnout? If you haven’t, can you please share you secret.
If you’re not sure oh what I mean by ‘burnout’, simply put it’s the over exhaustion from a certain task i.e. your job. Not only do we become quiet sensitive when we’re burnt out but our relationships become increasingly depersonalized and we become chronically pessimistic. As we withdraw from our relationships and grow convinced of our own powerlessness, we enter a downward spiral of pessimism that can feel impossible to escape.
Those who are in or are approaching burnout often suffer depleted energy, lowered resistance to illness, increased absenteeism, and decreased effectiveness on the job. Consequently, everyone suffers when trapped in this cycle of stress, withdrawal, and burnout.
Some cope well and remain resilient in the same environments that overwhelm others. After surveying more than four hundred educators, we discovered that nearly one in five have figured out how to approach even the toughest fires and quench them.
