A guide to recognizing and dealing with burnout

The Burnout-syndrome is a common problem for people of all ages, although for those who live in an environment with high Anti-Stress work can be particularly difficult. Burnout is a state of physical, emotional and mental exhaustion caused by prolonged or excessive stress. It can manifest itself in a variety of ways, such as being overworked, irritable, unmotivated and unfulfilled.

Causes of burnout

The factors in work life that increase the likelihood of burnout are:

  • Lack of control and influence
  • poor working atmosphere, conflicts with superiors and colleagues
  • unclear success criteria
  • great responsibility under time pressure
  • Unfulfillable goals
  • boring routines
  • constant interruptions of the work process
  • Fear for the job

However, burnout also occurs in people who have little or no recognizable work stress. Also, by no means everyone who is under the greatest pressure at work automatically ends up in total exhaustion. Quite a few people love challenges and feel good about them.

Often, personality traits of the affected persons are decisive: Affected are often people who, on the one hand, make high demands on themselves and others. They want to do everything perfectly, but on the other hand they have a weak self-confidence and prefer to avoid conflicts. They are also bad at dealing with slights, disappointments or frustrations. In addition, those affected often have the feeling that they expend a lot of energy without getting anything back.
Private setbacks can also promote burnout - especially if there is a lack of support from partners, friends and family.

Signs of burnout

The first step in dealing with burnout is to recognize that you may be suffering from it. Typical signs of burnout are fatigue, Insomnia, lack of interest in activities that used to be fun, decreased productivity at work or school, and difficulty concentrating.

Permanent fatigue and exhaustion

Loss of performance due to burnout

Those affected feel they can no longer cope with their everyday tasks, they feel overwhelmed and tired. The need for more and more rest increases. However, rest no longer lasts as long as before. Switching off after work is becoming increasingly difficult for many.

Declining performance

The work is no longer successful. Increasingly, there are problems with concentration and nervousness. Decisions are difficult to make and mistakes happen more and more often. The desired results do not materialize. It is not uncommon for those affected to try even harder - which robs them of even more energy. Anxiety can develop and the emotional resilience decreases.

Withdrawal and inner emptiness

Withdrawal due to burnout

Many burnout sufferers withdraw more and more. They give up hobbies and neglect their partners and friends. There is a complete lack of Motivation.
The joie de vivre in everyday life is increasingly dwindling. There is nothing fun anymore, everything is exhausting. Dissatisfaction and indifference spread. The original enthusiasm is replaced by cynicism and finally by hopelessness and despair.

Coping mechanisms for burnout

Anyone who believes they are suffering from burnout should prioritize rest and self-care. This includes, for example, getting more sleep each night or taking time off from work or school to relax. It's also important to set realistic goals - both professional and personal - and take breaks when needed. In addition, it's important to maintain healthy habits, such as exercising regularly and eating a nutritious diet. Finally, talking to a trusted friend or family member can help you recover from overwhelming stressors.


It's not enough to just manage the current burnout. It's also important to put systems in place to help prevent future burnouts. This could mean setting limits for oneself (e.g., no night work) or seeking professional help when needed (e.g., talking to a therapist). Also, incorporating stress management techniques, such as yoga or mindfulness, into daily life to help manage stressful situations when they arise.
