4 Reasons Why You Have Work Burnout

Job burnout is a special type of work-related stress, a state of physical or emotional exhaustion that also involves a sense of reduced accomplishment and loss of personal identity.

Here are some reasons why you keep getting work burnout.

1. Mindless Social Media Consumption

The use of social media at work tends to increase burnout in people who scroll through Facebook or Instagram as a distraction, filler, or when bored but for those who have higher levels of mindfulness, social media was a burnout buffer.

2. Pressure to achieve

When people we look up to like our bosses, teachers, or coaches hold us to high standards, we try to meet them and we achieve them because someone believed we could do it. But at a point those high standards hurt us because we start pushing ourselves to reach them and they make us feel like we aren’t good enough.

3. Work-life imbalance

If your work takes up so much of your time and effort that you don’t have the energy to spend time with your family and friends, you might burn out quickly.

4. Extremes of activity

When a job is monotonous or chaotic, you need constant energy to remain focused — which can lead to fatigue and job burnout.
