Oh boy, here it goes. This is real, this is me. I have been juggling many emotions this year and I am finally in a space where I feel I can share in hopes to help others reflect on where they are at right now in their lives. In this episode, I share my experience with burnout and finally quitting my job.

For those who have never experienced this or don’t know what burnout is, burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands. As the stress continues, you begin to lose interest and motivation that led you to take on a certain role in the first place. 

Here are some signs & symptoms of burnout

Physical signs and symptoms of burnout

  • Feeling tired and drained most of the time
  • Lowered immunity, frequent illnesses
  • Frequent headaches or muscle pain
  • Change in appetite or sleep habits

Emotional signs and symptoms of burnout

  • Sense of failure and self-doubt
  • Feeling helpess, trapped, and defated
  • Detachment, feeling alone in the world
  • Loss of motivation
  • Increasingly cynical and negative outlook
  • Decreased satisfaction and sense of accommplishent

Behavioral signs and symptoms of burnout

  • Withdrawing from responsibiiltes
  • Isolating yourself from others
  • Procrastinating, taking longer to get things done
  • Using food, drugs, or alcohol to cope

Does this sound familiar? You don’t have to walk through this alone. If you want to do something about these feelings and have someone help you regain the hope you have lost! I got you!
