Have you ever felt mentally, physically and emotionally drained from work? Is it difficult for you to get out of bed and get excited about your current job position? Are you constantly stressed, irritable, or lack concentration during your day-to-day tasks? Maybe you just need a “mental health day” or maybe you are experiencing something more serious.
According to USA Today, burnout” has “officially become recognized by the World Health Organization through a revision of the International Classification of Diseases — a handbook for doctors and health insurers.”
The handbook states that as of May 2019, doctors can diagnosis someone with burnout if they meet the following symptoms:
- Feeling of energy depletion or exhaustion
- Increased mental distance from one’s job, feeling of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job
- Reduced professional efficacy
Americans are working longer and harder than ever before, and the day-to-day stress we all experience is enough to say “Hey, I think I might be experiencing burnout!” And you may be right.
We are all under an immense amount of stress not only with our jobs, but with our families, extracurricular activities, school, balancing friendships, keeping our homes put together, and even keeping yourself together. The triggers for stress are endless and extend beyond the office. The question is…what are we doing about it?
The first thing to ask yourself is: can you honestly say that you take the time to really “turn off” from your work? This means, not answering emails after work hours, not working through your lunch break, and not working a 12-hour day consecutively. Some simply can’t fathom not jumping quickly to answer an incoming email, or eating on the go, or even working “just one more hour.”
It’s important, especially in this day in age to take the time to look at our habits in the work space and strive to put in our hours and work hard, but know when it’s time to turn off our brains and to relax.
If you find yourself on the edge of burnout, you need to do everything you can to relieve the stress. However, it can be difficult to unwind when your home-life is causing you stress even when you are not in the office. What happens when you just logged your third 12-hour-day, and then you come home to a disorganized, clutter-filled house? It’s almost like the cherry on top of a stress-filled sundae!
Thankfully, Me In Order is here to help you tackle your home life, so you can start focusing on yourself.
