Burnout is a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It happens when you feel overwhelmed and unable to meet constant demands. As the stress continues, you lose the interest or motivation that led you to take on a certain role in the first place.
Burnout results from too much stress, but it isn’t the same thing. Stress, by and large, is all about “too much” – too much pressure, too many demands. But when you’re stressed you know that once you get it all under control, everything will be better.
Burnout, conversely, is about “not enough”. You feel empty, unmotivated, and uninterested in most of what’s going on around you. It’s hard to feel like anything will get better.
Burnout reduces your productivity and saps your energy, leaving you feeling increasingly helpless, hopeless, cynical, and resentful. Eventually, you may feel like you have nothing more to give.
So what is the best way of dealing with burnout and stress? Coping means stopping what you’re doing to take care of yourself. At Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Retreat
