It’s a tightrope many people walk daily…. Work-life balance can be challenging and when we consistently prioritize work over our health, we experience a tired and restless feeling called burnout.
We start to compromise our personal wellness. When that happens, the passion we have for life starts to diminish and we are left with the negative effects of stress. Here are three things to notice if you think you may be experiencing burnout.
1. Unhealthy Behaviors Rev-Up
Part of the burnout dynamic includes an increase in unhealthy behaviors. Have you noticed yourself doing things you wouldn’t usually?
Is your routine messed up or you can’t get out of bed? Some of these activities include exercising less, sleeping less, drinking more alcohol, stress eating, emotional eating, and/or inconsistent eating. These are some burnout warning signs.
Hilton Head Health is a safe haven for the weary. For those who desperately need a wellness recharge, their LivingWell program provides exactly what’s needed
2. Fatigue and Trouble Concentrating Becomes Commonplace
Executive burnout starts to really take hold when an overly demanding schedule does not allow for an appropriate wind down at the end of the day.
The intense stress associated with an exacting job can make it difficult for people to quiet their thoughts and relax enough to achieve quality sleep. Lack of sleep results in a whole host of unhealthy manifestations, both physical and cognitive.
When someone doesn’t get enough sleep, fatigue and trouble concentrating top the list.
For those who are married to their work, an Executive Health Retreat is the antidote to job burnout. These programs can help to bring people’s life back into balance by prioritizing their self-care, as well as learning new skills for managing the stresses of work and life.
3. You’re Riding the Emotional Roller Coaster
When you find yourself frequently getting short and impatient with your work colleagues, family and friends, burnout might be on the horizon. If you’re lashing back or acting like you wouldn’t usually, chances are, you’re feeling a bit burnt out.
Likewise, when you become emotionally flat, disinterested and unmotivated, burnout is at play.
