Conditions: Burnout

What is burnout?

It happens to everyone at some point or another. Burnout is a form of exhaustion caused by constantly feeling swamped. It is a result of excessive and prolonged emotional, physical, and mental stress and strain.

Burnout is most related to one’s job but that is not always the case. Burnout happens when you’re overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to keep up with life’s demands.

The condition isn’t medically diagnosed but burnout can affect your physical and mental health if you don’t acknowledge or treat it. Burnout can have many symptoms. It can often be confused with stress or escalate into depression.
