Have you ever thought about the risks you face when you take on too many responsibilities, multi-role and think that’s it, but you can’t…

You have no strength, you are exhausted, there is a feeling of increased helplessness, a cynical attitude. You think that you have nothing to give as a person.

This condition is a specific type of stress – “burnout”. The famous American psychologist Herbert Fredenberger introduced this term and was the first to describe the symptoms of burnout.

Burnout and occupational stress are interactions between personality and work that lead to physiological, emotional-behavioral and cognitive changes in the individual.

The cause of burnout can be the wrong work schedule of a person, insufficient time for communication and rest, excessive responsibility, lack of close and supportive relationships, etc. Ignoring the period of burnout or even thinking that this syndrome is not a threat and passes without a trace, often becomes source of severe consequences.

During “burnout”, a person’s behavior changes, he can avoid responsibility, isolation, isolation, procrastination, drug and alcohol use, shifting his frustration to others, etc. are common. Burnout is paid a lot of attention in the world, among which the so-called strategies are popular self-help.
