Possible Causes Of Burnout (physical And Emotional Exhaustion) At Work?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Based on your story, the possibility that you experience is work-related stress, also known as burnout. Burnout itself is actually not a medical diagnosis, but only describes a condition of physical and emotional exhaustion that causes reduced achievement and loss of self-identity.
Some possible causes of burnout at work include:
Do not have control over your work (for example you are not given the freedom to make decisions, set a schedule, or the amount of work you can take)
Unclear work expectations
The dynamics of the workplace are not good, for example there is bullying at work, there are people who like to talk behind their backs or stab them in the back
Work that is too monotonous, too much, and too irregular
Lack of support from people around you, including your coworkers and superiors and also people outside the work environment (family or friends)
Imbalance between work and personal life, for example you are required to spend more time at your workplace so that you do not have time for family or socializing with others outside your workplace, do not have time to travel and have fun, etc.
This burnout can be caused and can also cause psychiatric disorders such as depression. If you experience this condition, you should immediately seek help from professionals such as psychologists to help you cope with your burnout before this condition develops in a more negative direction (eg becoming a major depression).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
