Feeling the Effects of Workplace Burnout? Here’s How to Deal

Posted by Robyn Whalen on Mon, Feb 05, 2018

When you first started your job, you probably felt excited, enthusiastic, and optimistic about your future at your company. But after a few years, that excitement might have started to dwindle, and you might feel a bit less happy in your role that you once used to love. This is a normal feeling for many full-time employees – especially for those that work in high-stress roles or at high-stress companies.

If you dread going to work and feel like the work you do has become meaningless, you might be suffering from the effects of workplace burnout. Mayo Clinic defines workplace burnout as a special type of stress; it’s a state of physical, emotional, or mental exhaustion combined with doubts about the competence and the value of one’s work. Burnout usually occurs when a person experiences long-term stress at their job or feels their role is emotionally and/or physically exhausting. 

Some typical signs of workplace burnout include:

  • Feeling negative or cynical at work
  • Having trouble feeling focused or productive
  • Feeling irritated with colleagues or clients
  • Lack of energy
  • Poor sleep
  • Changes in diet or appetite
  • Taking more sick days than usual
  • Feeling unsatisfied with your achievements
  • Unusual chronic aches or pains – like headaches or backaches
