So let’s face it, today’s modern life is fast paced, ever-changing, and increasingly stressful. Jobs are requiring more and more, often times for less pay and benefits. Keeping up with the technological changes that are taking place is in-and-of itself enough to make a person want to pull their hair out. Add to the mix parenting, being a responsible partner, long commutes, and a laundry-list of other stressful responsibilities, it’s no wonder that the term “burnout” is commonplace in modern society. Most of us feel like we are one stressful event away from a full on meltdown.
So before we get to how we can avoid or remedy the ever-dreaded burnout, let’s talk a bit about some of the signs of true burnout. Here are four commonly witnessed signs that you’re in the danger zone. In other words, if you are experiencing 2 or 3 of these signs, make the decision to do something about it.
Now that we covered some of the common signs of burnout, let’s discuss the steps to take in order to recover from this debilitating condition. Here are 5 simple steps that you can implement now if you have 2 or more of the above signs listed. If things are too bad and you don’t find any relief using these steps, contact Prana Chiropractic and Wellness Center if you’re in the Western, NC region or your local healthcare provider.
Again, if things seem serious, or you just cannot seem to get past the feelings of burnout, consult a healthcare provider. Certainly give the above steps a shot. Each and every one of us can benefit from them, so they certainly won’t make things worse. Please keep in mind that the above information is not a means of diagnosis, as only a licensed healthcare provider can do that. The information is simply that, information to help recognize the potential for a problem which needs addressing. We are always here for you, so drop us a line and I will be more than happy to personally teach you more!
