Thursday, August 22nd, 2013 Focus: If I start having signs of stress overload or burnout, I listen, start problem solving, and redirect my life.

Too much of either positive or negative stress can result in stress overload, commonly known as “burnout.” Burnout occurs when you blow your circuits and feel physically and emotionally exhausted. If you say things like, “I used to love my work and now I can’t see the point” or “I can’t get out of bed anymore,” you may be burned out.

Work or career burnout happens when you begin to question the meaning and value of your work. If you strive endlessly to meet unrealistic expectations, you may come to a standstill. As uncomfortable as it is, burnout can often launch dramatic positive changes. When your body and psyche sound the alarm, your job is to listen and redirect your life.

All of us have difficulty getting up certain mornings, when it’s raining out or we have a dreaded meeting ahead of us, but pay attention if there’s a pattern. If you have a total of three or more warning signals that you experience on a regular basis, then it’s time to start problem solving.
