Burn Out

Updated: Nov 16, 2023

Do you find that you’re increasingly feeling tired, irritable, and lacking motivation to consistently work on your personal and professional goals?


More and more clients and industry professionals who have worked hard through COVID-19 are reporting that they feel this way.


Business owners who were exceptionally successful and productive during the pandemic are feeling the effects of operating in a high-stress, uncertain climate for a prolonged period.


According to research, feeling tired, cynical, or detached from your work or relationships can be signs of burnout.


This is not just about having a bad day. This is a feeling that lasts for weeks or months.


Burnout can creep up slowly and can be hard to recognize until it's too late and has serious impacts on your health, relationships, and career.


If you’re self-employed it can also have serious consequences for your financial stability - if your ability to show up to work is compromised as a result of burnout.


If you’re noticing that you’re feeling less satisfied with your work life, here are some common red flags that you’re on the road to burnout:


1. Physical and emotional exhaustion: feeling tired, depleted, and drained both physically and emotionally.


2. Cynicism and detachment: becoming pessimistic, cynical, and detached from work or relationships or your future career success.


3. Self & doubt and feeling of underperformance: feeling less productive and efficient in work-related tasks. Lack of satisfaction: feeling unfulfilled and dissatisfied with work or relationships.


4. Health problems: experiencing physical symptoms like headaches, stomachaches, weight fluctuations, or muscle tension.



If you notice a cluster of these signs, don't fall into the trap of thinking that burnout is just a phase that you can power through.


It's like quicksand that can pull you down slowly, but steadily until you're in over your head if you ignore it and keep going.


Recognizing the signs of burnout and taking action can help you avoid the trap and stay on a path towards a healthier and more fulfilling work-life balance.


Remember, taking care of yourself is not only good for you but also benefits your work performance and overall happiness.


So, if you notice any of these red flags, it's time to take a step back and prioritize your well-being.
