As I shared in my article last week, burnout is more than a passing feeling. It can have real and serious implications for your career and—more importantly—your mental and physical health. When you experience burnout on the job, you’re more likely to take sick days, and the days you do show up physically, you’re probably not as productive as the not-burned-out version of you. This can lead to jeopardizing your future work with the company, or in your field.
So, if you believe your workplace stress might be heading towards burnout, the time to act is now, with whatever energy and capacity you still have, in order to find solutions that will change your course and keep you from burning out.
