How to Deal with Stress, Anxiety and Burnout

Burnout is a multifaceted syndrome comprising of mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual exhaustion. Chronic stress is the main contributing factor to burnout which is often instigated by work problems as well as parenting, relationships and caregiving. Currently a large number of people are experiencing high levels of burnout due to extremely stressful world events over the past few years.

Societal pressures that arise as the year comes to an end often cause large amounts of stress for many people. Financial demands increase with Christmas, summer activities and childcare. Summer holidays including trips away and the packing required as well as all things Christmas with extra food to buy and prepare, presents to purchase and the house to clean often all cause stress levels of people to increase.

Additionally, it is coming up near 3 years since the world has been experiencing a large number of stressors that no one in our lifetime has had experience with. The constant uncertainty surrounding lockdowns, stable income and ---- has left a lot of people exhausted contributing to burnout.

Indicators of Burnout:

  • Immense sense of exhaustion and fatigue. Non-restorative sleeps, tiredness upon waking, energy crashes after midday.
  • Feeling disconnected and dull. Life seems meaningless. Less motivation and excitement about the future.
  • Feeling unaccomplished. An overwhelming sense of incompetency and ineffectiveness.

The uncertainty that the world has been facing has also caused childhood anxiety to also increase. The rates of burnout and stress have also increased. In just over one year from May 2020 to November 2021, burnout rates increased by 24% from 11% to 35%.  Those aged under 65 years had stress levels of 55% and all others over 65 years rated their stress levels at 40%.

These high levels of stress need to be reduced. The best way to address burnout is prevention. We can learn to manage and reduce the stress and anxiety we feel to prevent burnout from occurring. Finding balance is key.
