Stress and burnout can create a disequilibrium across every aspect of our lives  physically, emotionally and spiritually. Stress and burnout are tangible states that manifest through a range of symptoms including constant fatigue, insomnia, lack of concentration, emotional discomfort and much more. 


While stress serves as a biological response to demanding circumstances, burnout represents an advanced stage of stress, often characterised by emotional exhaustion and decreased personal and professional effectiveness. 


The journey from stress to burnout is usually incremental, often unnoticed until it manifests itself in a chronic form. Initially, it can seem like general fatigue or a decline in work performance. Gradually, it takes a toll on our social interactions, cognitive abilities, and emotional well-being. Symptoms like social withdrawal, cognitive impairments, and detachment from work activities are the indicators of burnout.


Various factors contribute to burnout. It usually stems from long-term stress and strains and can manifest as either physical or emotional. This often arises due to overwhelming workloads, lack of social support, or imbalance between work and life. Emotional exhaustion, feeling disconnected from job-related activities, and reduced efficiency are the primary manifestations and addressing the underlying causes becomes crucial in preventing burnout and the physical and emotional toll it takes.


The key to combating stress and preventing burnout lies in recognising the early symptoms and taking proactive measures to repair oneself. This means adopting a balanced lifestyle focused on wellbeing that incorporates sufficient sleep, nutrition, physical activity, and social interactions. It also involves learning restorative stress-management techniques that allow you to cope with challenges effectively.
