Burnout is a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed and unable to meet constant demands. As the stress continues, you begin to lose the interest or motivation. Burnout reduces your productivity and  your energy, leaving you feeling increasingly helpless, hopeless, cynical, and resentful. Eventually, you may feel like you have nothing more to give. Burnout can hit you in all periods of life, we find burnout syndrome among younger population and older population as well.
Burnout is a gradual process that occurs over an extended period of time. It doesn’t happen overnight, but it can creep up on you if you’re not paying attention to the warning signals. The signs and symptoms of burnout are subtle at first, but they get worse and worse as time goes on. You may be on the road to burnout if: every day is a bad day, caring about your work or home life seems like a total waste of energy, you’re exhausted all the time, the majority of your day is spent on tasks you find either dull or overwhelming, you feel like nothing you do makes a difference or is appreciated.
