According to the international Classification of Diseases. Burnout is now a legitimate medical diagnosis and is now part of the World Health Organization’s handbook.
What is burnout and what is the difference with stress?
Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands. As the stress continues, you begin to lose the interest and motivation.
Before making the call, the document says doctors should first rule out adjustment disorder as well as anxiety and mood disorders. And the diagnosis is limited to work environments, and shouldn’t be applied to other life situations.
There are many ways that you can lessen stress in a natural way. Richard Branson, Founder of virgin group shared “One of the main reasons I have been able to avoid burnout over more than 50 years in business is by making my health and wellness a priority.”
