A misconception exists that careers in social service or postal work are the only fields that experience employee burnout and tension.

Since the reality is every occupation is susceptible to psychological stress and exhaustion, this idea could not be further from the truth.

Learning to distinguish typical stress from the deeper concerns that lead to ‘profession’ burnout is essential in order to successfully deal with the issue. Likewise, recognizing that any job can have this issue can empower you to make favorable changes in your own work environment.

The indications can vary from private to specific, but the following are some universal signs that a person can use to identify if ‘profession’ burnout is occurring.
Sensations of anguish and sadness that last for months or weeks generally signify that something in your life is not working like it needs to and is cause for an investigation 
Lack of energy
If you find yourself struggling to rise in the early morning to go to work or experiencing continuous tiredness throughout the day, your career might be the offender.
Absence of desire
You once felt encouraged to work your hardest and attain the objectives you set on your own. However lately, you discover that you simply don’t care if you are successful or not– an obvious caution that you may have become burned out.
Decreased efficiency
Your manager and colleagues often applauded you for the work results you produced; however, lately, you have missed a number of important project deadlines and have actually ended up being undependable due to the fact that these things simply didn’t seem that crucial to you.
Increased absenteeism and/or tardiness
When you would rather have cut off your left hand than be late or miss out on a day of work, nowadays, you find yourself searching for every chance to avoid work.
 Abuse of alcohol/drugs
Needing alcohol or drugs to survive a workday is a certain red flag that you are experiencing an incredible amount of job-related stress.
Periodic monotony in one’s profession is entirely normal; nevertheless, prevalent feelings of weariness and dreariness are not and are an indicator of possible burnout.
Anger/resentment in the workplace
 Blasting supervisors and/or coworkers is unacceptable this behavior should be given immediate attention due to its possibly abusive nature.
Sleep problems                                                                                                                         

Sleeping disorders or periodic fatigue can occur to anyone however are an issue if they become consistent and a part of your daily life. Sleep disruptions are your body’s method of saying it is overworked.
Failure to relax
Your profession could be hurting your health and happiness if you discover that you no longer enjoy your favorite non-work activities or that you are continuously tense with headaches.

I THINK I’M BURNED OUT– NOW WHAT?                                                                             The first step to getting help is acknowledging that you need support. The 2nd step is to look for aid and guidance through a partner, pal, staff member, therapist, or a help program. The road to finding your ideal work can be tough, but it is likewise empowering and life-changing.

waking up all hours of the night..or possibly not even sleeping at all during the night

yet, in the morning i still flow.

i smile..i engage..my facade is my pseudo strength

with clinical depression..major depressive disorder..the feelings are almost as different as the people who experience it

for some it’s like an immersion in deep, thick … sometimes blinding fog;

some feel an overwhelming weighted sense of doom;

to some, it’s a never-ending waiting game..

like an inability to feel at ease because you’re just waiting for that annoying needling uneasiness to resurface again.

quite naturally you don’t want it to
but invariably it shows up.

still, i flow.

i even manage to smile .. often.

it’s like i’ve conditioned myself..maybe even hoping i can trick my mind..control my thoughts.

it’s a battle that no one knows
i’m fighting.

sometimes i think maybe..just maybe this time i may have a ‘hold’ on it this time.

i listen to people talk about depression sometimes. {not as it relates to me}but just in general.

often some just don’t understand that it goes way beyond depression based on loss
or ‘feeling down’ over a particular happening.

because those who don’t suffer from depression may not fully grasp it; sometimes by sharing what you’re feeling opens the door for a conversation.
possibly both sides will gain some insight and at least broaden the perspectives.
it’s too easy to suffer in silence..but we really do not have to fight it alone.

depression, anxiety, and a host of unwelcome feelings are all unpredictable.

one minute you’re on cruise control just flowing along ..then boom! something triggers something and you feel as though you’ve walked into a maze of haze.

it’s enveloping, heavy, even impedes your movements. definitely a debilitating feeling…affecting your emotional, mental, and even physical being.

sometimes when this happens it’s good to just be still…inhale slowly and exhale even slower.

all that we have been seeking outside of ourselves…stability, calmness, peace of mind, understanding, love, balance, truth .. we look for answers through books, philosophical views, listening to others, and trying to refocus…ALL of these things and much more could really help us.

maybe before frustratingly searching for the answer to our ‘whys’ maybe we can pause, listen and try to connect with our inner being.

yes, go within.

often its not what or who we surround ourselves with, its actually what lays deep inside our soul.

seeking ourselves within ourselves its a great start.

try to ‘go within’…’ feel’ and ‘trust’.

approach things from a different perspective.

this is not a solution to our disease…but it could be that trestle preparing us for whatever comes next.

have you ever heard others say ‘if you can focus on another or another issue it lessens what you may or may not be going through’?
i guess its suppose to redirect your thoughts and emotions…it provides you with ‘something other than yourself’ to ‘deal’ with.
i often find that i can go through the motions…( hmmmn , no that implies that i’m not sincere in my efforts. okay, lets say i do give of myself in a major way…and it feels good…but in the still of the night ..when i am all alone and that blanket of emptiness covers me..i realize not much has changed.
some days it really feels as though it has…it’s like i’ve been on a mission but i always return back to ‘that place’.

starting all over again…but not really…
do we ever really begin all over or is it just a continuation of
where we left off…in a connected or non-connected way?
how about i’m just turning the page in a book with several very long
unwritten chapters.
