Overcoming Mental Health and Burnout in The Workplace


Job burnout is a common work-related stressor that can lead to chronic fatigue, insomnia, physical symptoms like headaches and stomachaches, anger, isolation, irritability, depression, anxiety, alcohol or substance abuse, irresponsibility with finances, anger towards family members, inability to fulfil responsibilities, job dissatisfaction, withdrawing from colleagues and friends, inability to do the job well, and drain on company resources. Burnout can stem from factors such as lack of control over schedule or workload, unclear expectations from management, poor work culture (micromanagement or cliquey coworkers), lack of work-life balance (giving too much energy and time to work), or high engagement with work (being over-engaged can lead to emotional exhaustion). Join us for this episode as we reflect on our own burnout stories and provide some useful tips as to how you can avoid the burnout cycle.
