What is Burn-out?

The World Health Organisation recently described burn-out as;

“A syndrome conceptualised as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed”
— World Health Organisation

They characterised it by:

Feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion.

Increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job.

Reduced professional efficacy.

Burn-out refers specifically to phenomena in the occupational context and should not be applied to describe experiences in other areas of life.”

An on going cycle

When you’re going through burn-out you know that the feelings of exhaustion, negative thinking and lack of focus don’t stop once you leave work. It can feel like an endless cycle. It’s only natural to be under a certain amount of pressure as we need this to get ourselves up and out to work or to meet deadlines however, too much pressure and not releasing stress from our systems can eventually cause our bodies to breakdown, physically, psychologically or both.

So how do you beat burn-out?

How do you find your way back to an alert yet relaxed and happy state of clarity and mental sharpness?

How do you lift brain fog to a place of functionality and effectiveness?


Being the Best You

It takes input on your part, it involves a change in your thought process and a consistent approach to reducing your stress levels. By adopting a self development plan to beating burn-out you take control of your future wellness and create positive actions that not only help to restore good health but create habits that can prevent a repetition of feeling like a flat battery. 

The following tried and tested techniques may appear simple but are extremely effective and can, if used on a regular basis help to beat burn-out, propelling you to a healthier, happier, revitalised place.

Me- Time

How often do you hear yourself saying “I haven’t time” With work mounting, calls and emails coming in, daily pressures and demands can become such a burden that self development becomes the least of your priorities. Taking back control of your day by scheduling in time for yourself is vital for both your physical and psychological wellbeing.

Tip: Schedule in 30 minutes me –time. Include stretching exercises, a couple of minutes deep abdominal breathing, reading and reflecting. Spend time outdoors. Try sticking to your routine for 28 days to create good practice.

Affirmations are a string of positive words that have a beneficial affect on your energy system, the more positive your thoughts the more this trends your behaviour and overall levels of happiness.

Soaking up the atmosphere, what are you actually absorbing?

Have you ever felt like you are having a total sensory overload? We certainly did this week.It happened on our way through Spitalfields, in the East End of London on a beautiful blue sky October morning whilst heading to the MadWorld: Mental Health/Workplace Wellbeing Summit. There were people everywhere, ambling, hurrying, running. Snippets of conversation permeated the air, people with coffee in hand, food on the go, probably purchased  from the Old Spitalfields market, joggers dodging the crowds, cyclists weaving through taxis and buses. Noise, hum, buzz, this was London, vibrant and radiating as any Capital city does everyday. Here we were, immersed in an unescapable sea of people going about their daily business, all unwittingly soaking up London life and all of its intoxicating atmosphere.

“Soaking up the atmosphere”, a common expression, often used to describe how we experience, take in or absorb the vibe of a place or an area. Have you ever wondered what we are really “soaking up” In a positive context we can mean good vibrations, happy thoughts and feelings, however on the flip side we are also “soaking up” or absorbing the stress, congestion and negative energies radiating from people all around us. This is happening without us realising it and is one of the reasons why at the end of the day we can feel fatigued and drained. It’s a bit like taking a tissue and dipping it in red dye, the tissue becomes saturated by the dye. Our energy system is no different, except it’s not absorbing dye instead it’s absorbing stress energy.

 Understanding that we have an energy system that constantly gets congested and learning techniques to help clean it up can lead us to a healthier, happier, calmer more focused, energised way of living. We clean away grime and dirt from our physical bodies without a second thought but it’s just as important to keep our energy system clean. By increasing our knowledge of the impact of stress energy on our health and how we absorb it we will be able to make changes and begin to transform how we feel and how we ultimately enjoy and experience city life.
