Research shows that burnout has three dimensions: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and reduced personal accomplishment. When you’re emotionally exhausted, you feel used up—not just emotionally, but often physically and cognitively as well.

It's not just the work. It's the hours people spending travelling to and from work. Driven further away from their places of work thanks to crazy house/rent prices - relentless increases in travel costs and nothing is being done to actually improve things.

Not until employers back off applying the pressure, and begin valuing employees as humans that aren't indestructible.

The madness of capitalism: while some work absurd hours, others can't find work.

When did we start calling it"Burnout Culture", and not"Labour Law Violations"?

It's time that there was more education in the work place to build resilience and support structures for those who are at risk of burnout and mental health issues, it must become easier to talk openly without fear of being exposed as a failure. I know that I suffered in silence, just pushing myself on and on, for most of a year life felt like a car crash happening in slow motion where the impact was impossible to avoid. I am now dealing with the consequences- a damaged career knocked far off the tracks, low self esteem, a sense of unfulfillment, a loss of confidence and self belief.

During my 40 years at work the threat of redundancy was ever present, like the sword of Damacles; Wondering whether your job would be the next to go off to a Low Cost Country; Pension schemes gradually plundered and closed; going off sick morphed into a disciplinary offence; people feared taking their holiday entitelement for fear of what they might come back to and best of all individual performance appraisals being abused as a means of denying pay rises to those who do the work and to promote sycophantis and bullies.

Many of the comments on here relate to overworking and not taking time for ourselves. I want to point out another kind of burnout that affects many in professions that are psychologically draining. That's the type of burnout I feel I deal with and would like to know how to decompress from. I work 40 hours a week with weekends and holidays, so I don't overwork, but the horror stories I hear when I'm at work (drug/alcohol rehab hospital), can absolutely get to me. Daily, I hear stories of adult and child sexual abuse, domestic violence, trauma, death, etc. I love where I work and I love the people I work with and absolutely do not want to leave this position, so it's just a thing I have to deal with. So any advice on how to not let things get to me would be greatly appreciated!!
