Burnout has become a global epidemic. According to a new YouGov survey commissioned by Virgin, over half (51%) of employees said they have experienced anxiety or ‘burnout’ in their current job. Our quality of health and life suffers as we increasingly become prone to its devastating effects. It’s time to take a journey of self-discovery and awaken to a brilliantly renewed life.
Jayne helps organisations and individuals discover:
- The true potential cost of burnout
- Why overwork is unsustainable
- Warning signs and symptoms of burnout
- Ways to prevent burnout
- How to shift productivity from burnout to brilliance.
Many people have no idea that they are burning out because running on reserves has become normal to them. They use stimulants like caffeine and sugar to pep them up throughout the day and alcohol at night to help them switch off and sleep. Constantly feeling tired is something they have accepted as part of living a busy life. Whenever they eventually take time out for a holiday they usually end up ill and ironically return to work feeling just as exhausted and depleted as they did before.
This chronic cycle often continues until eventually the adrenal glands reach a point of over fatigue and send symptoms signaling stress. Symptoms include headaches, salt cravings, disturbed sleep, slow cold and flu recovery, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), cold hands and feet, insomnia, exhaustion, low libido, irregular heartbeat, panic attacks, labyrinthitis, depression, anxiety, ovarian cysts, abnormally high/low blood pressure, feeling overwhelmed, low stamina, craving sweet foods, difficulty concentrating, loss/partial loss of sight, carpal tunnel syndrome, RSI (repetitive strain injury), back pain, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies and respiratory problems.
It is not just physical symptoms that indicate things are out of balance, but emotional and psychological signs such as perfectionism, obsessive compulsive disorder and an addiction to always needing to be ‘doing something’. Those who burn out tend to feel compelled to fill up every space in the diary, find it difficult to take time out and relax, feel drained by conversations with certain family members/friends, and frequently take on more commitments than they able to deliver on.
Burn out most commonly affects high flyers addicted to working too much, but can equally affect those who love too much. We can burn out at work, in our families, in intimate relationships, in social or political groups and across any other areas where we actively expend energy in our lives. Many people burnout as a result of giving away too much of themselves across all areas in their lives – as the saying goes “how we do one thing is how we do everything”.
Those who burn out tend to excel in coping with challenges, but due to personal pride and a deep concern for others, will sacrifice their own health and wellbeing, often finding it hard to say “No” and accepting more pressure when they really need to press pause. The result of this, in addition to highly stressful workplace and social environments can lead to extreme dysregulation of adrenaline and cortisol in the bloodstream and diagnosis of autoimmune disorders and associated illnesses including MS, ME, chronic fatigue, lupus, post viral fatigue syndrome, hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma and even cancer.
