How to beat Burn out
In 2019 the World Health Organization finally included burnout in its International Classification of Diseases, describing it as “a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.”
Dr. Mario Alonso Puig, in his book “Your three superpowers” explains “burnout” as a state of the brain after spending too much time in a state of alert or survival. What do you mean by it? That our mind in its natural state allows us to live a happy and full life, but the factors of life, situations, our habits and food lead us to a survival mode in which the brain shrinks the size of the hippocampus, a frontal blood cell , and if it is sustained for a long time it can lead us to burn out. What things make us stay in survival mode? Losing a job, cutting off a relationship, eating poorly, lack of exercise and any daily situation in which one is threatened. Despite the countries, Burnout is a global problem. Some symptoms of being burnout are exhaustion, inaction, apathy and depression. When it is prolonged, we go to burnout where it becomes impossible for us to concentrate or be happy.
Many studies show that Millennials have the highest levels of burnout and covid 19 situation didn’t helped.
