The Physical Impact of Burnout

Burnout is a form of exhaustion you often experience when you're very busy or have too much to do. However, many have no idea that there are psychological impacts of burnout and genuine physical signs that you may be burned out.

You may feel helpless, overloaded, or unappreciated in your workplace and find it difficult to get out of bed and go to work. At other times, you may even be late to work or skip work at will with no just cause.

Burnout might be on its way when you begin to see these signs.

Excessive Stress (and Stomach Issues)

Burnout can put you under a lot of pressure. It can alter your feelings and how you see things around you. It may make you lose hope and sometimes even force you to do the unthinkable. This could include stomach issues like stress related diarrhea.

Burnout causes fatigue. It'll make you lose interest and excitement in what you do. It may make you feel like sleeping all the time, and you may find that even simple tasks take longer to complete. All of this will affect your level of productivity.
