Burning out is normal- we all burn out sometimes. It is a form of prolonged stress and is most often applied to someone who is overworked with little opportunity breaks or recovery time. The stress that leads to burnout could come from work, school, home, or in other areas of life.
Over time, stress can wear on the body and mind, causing careless mistakes, fatigue, and mental exhaustion. To prevent and manage feelings of burnout, you must know the warning signs and address them before they become too overwhelming or unmanageable.
