Burnout is now a recognised medical diagnosis and included in the World Health Organisation (WHO) International Classification of Diseases diagnostic manual.
Burnout is a state of mental and physical exhaustion that can suck the joy out of your career, friendships, and family interactions. With the ever-increasing demands of work, family life, and relationships, and the looming realities of pandemic-living, it can be easy to feel stretched thin, depleted, and overloaded. The good news is that we don't have to wait to go on vacation to give ourselves a break. Getting enough quality sleep, regular exercise, mindfulness meditation, and connecting with loved ones, have all been shown to combat burnout and refuel and re-energize our inner resources. The weekend is the perfect opportunity to put the spotlight on our health and wellbeing. What's one small thing you will do to restore and refresh your body and mind?
