Raise your hand if you’ve been feeling burnt out.
We can’t actually see you, but we’re confident that the majority of folks reading this article just raised their hands.
According to CAMH, burnout is “a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress”. Often one will experience burnout in relation to their career, but the effects of it can be felt in other aspects of their life. Burnout can make you feel helpless and reduce motivation and productivity.
If you’re among the hand-raisers, you are certainly not alone. As we know, the last year and a bit has been a lot for everyone. We’ve observed an incredible level of resilience in the face of things like Zoom fatigue, burnout, and significant life adjustments no one could have anticipated.
As people slowly return to their offices and places of work, it’s important that teams are equipped with the skills and knowledge to identify signs of burnout in their teams. You can’t pour from an empty cup, and this couldn’t be more true when it comes to work-life.
Burnout is definitely not something that goes away quickly, and if you need a little extra guidance and motivation, here are 3 of our favourite experts on resilience in life and the workplace!
A true multi-hyphenate, Jennifer Moss is an award-winning journalist-author-speaker and globally-recognized expert on burnout. Moss’ work strives to provide folks with resources to maintain their resilience in times of stress. Areas of specialty include: myths and facts about burnout, the role of the employer in preventing burnout in the workplace, and tips and tricks to identify the signs of burnout.
If the phrase “fall down seven times, stand up eight” were personified, it would be Kaleb Dahlgren. He proved hockey coaches and scouts wrong, showing them that someone diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes could play elite-level hockey (and succeed). Then in April of 2018, he was among the 13 Humboldt Broncos players who survived a fatal accident. In the face of insurmountable odds, Dahlgren shows us that perseverance and resilience can help you achieve anything in life.
