Burnout Is Now A Legitimate Diagnosis: Here Are The Symptoms And How To Treat It | TODAY

Video taken from the channel: TODAY


You can consciously change your workload, says life coach Susie Moore. Tell yourself you will not volunteer for extra things and will say no to everything that’s not necessary, she suggests. Tell yourself you will not volunteer for extra things and will. Feeling and identifying the signs of job burnout is a powerful way to arm yourself with the strategies and resources needed to prevent it from bringing you down into the trenches of despair.

When Marie-Cécile’s burnout with her work hit, it was so bad she couldn’t get out of bed. The experience made her completely reassess how she approaches work, relationships, and boundaries. Enforce reasonable work hours, including encouraging breaks.

Help assess workloads for those who may feel pressured to work beyond normal business hours. Encourage social support and respect among team members through video chats. Be an example of an employee who creates time for work, time for rest and time for play. With burnout, I’ve personally noticed the effects spill into other areas of my life, and that’s when I knew I had to get it under control.” If you feel exhausted at work, treat your feelings as a.

Signs you’re suffering from burnout (and how to diagnose its source) The main signs and symptoms of burnout to watch out for; How your workplace is causing burnout: Common risks associated with feeling burnt out; 3. Coming back from burnout: The best strategies and tips for recovery. No one can expect change if its need and routes aren’t well-known. This means publicizing the nature, causes and – most importantly – signs and symptoms of burnout. That in turn means developing trainings for teachers to help them recognize the signs and symptoms of burnout. This has to change.

The ripple effects of burnout can be profound, so it’s important for you to recognize the warning signs in yourself and others. Here are 9 warning signs of burnou. Nurse burnout is a physical, mental, and emotional state caused by chronic overwork and a sustained lack of job fulfillment and support. Common burnout symptoms may include physical or emotional exhaustion, job-related cynicism, and a low sense of personal accomplishment. • Help organize and prioritize work into manageable and clear expectations.

These changes can help rebuild energy over time and aid in recovery. Many of the approaches found in Accommodation Strategies may also help support employee productivity to avoid burnout.

Burnout is worsened by not coping adequately with these emotional responses or taking the necessary time to process experiences, review goals, and recharge batteries by addressing the need for self care.

  • Yep, I am counting down my 6 days till I am gone. I have worked in a doctor’s office for many years and we are all way overworked, underpaid and not enough people to help. Patients suffer as well as employees and no one really seems to care so bye bye.

  • i ACTUALLY BURNOUT while working in a company and doing my masters studies starting from the panic attacks, psychosis, and enentually end up living with my parents at home. Now, I just having panic and fear just from the thought of working or getting a job.

  • I’ve been thinking that I’m dealing with burnout right now. This video almost solidified a couple viewpoints that affirms what I thought. It was good to know that the symptoms of burnout and depression are similar because that’s what I thought I was feeling, but felt that it wasn’t depression. Also…my mind blew open when you talked about how we can feel guilty on the negative feelings, even when the positive feelings are a tangible thing. I’ve been getting many compliments on what I’ve done at my job, but don’t take time to acknowledge probably because I’m viewing/nitpicking the negative out of it. The “i could’ve done this better” or “I need to work on this”. That has been such a constant going on that it makes me feel better knowing that that is also a sign of burnout.

  • Heck, I could have really used info like this a few years ago. I was burning for what felt like that whole year. Talking about those neurological changes, it scares me. But I understand it better now. Why I used to lash out at all my friends. Why I would just sit in corners rocking back and forth. Why I felt the urge to just go and kick a tree sometimes. I thought I was losing my mind. I suppose it was more like my mind was changing under me, knowing what I do now.

  • Homeless people Homeless people too many people who are homeless Shelters in the USA Shelters and get the homeless people out of the streets sleeping off the trains sleeping in the USA Shelters must have to close up all the dirty Shelters people who are at risk staff is at risk in the Shelters

  • Well done Kati! Great to see how your channel is growing, and just getting better! We met about a year ago at MGM waiting to go on camera. You gave me some courage to start my channel.

  • I’m definitely burned out! I’m just over it. I need a break from eveverything. Its manifesting into anger and some hormonal depression.
    Thx for this video Doc ��‍⚕️

  • Get the homeless people out of the Shelters system and get the homeless people out of the dirty shelter people now need help sleeping in the USA Shelters and get the homeless people out of the dirty shelter and off the streets sleeping off the trains sleeping body counting and mass burials and the Shelters system staff is at risk of getting the coronavirus get out of the dirty Shelters in the USA Shelters is failing people who are in the USA Shelters too long cluttering together and now coronavirus get housing and the government voucher grant program is inhumane is inhumane waste of the taxpayers money and time for the homeless people out of the dirty shelter and off the streets sleeping off the trains sleeping is now time to go close all homeless Shelters in the USA Shelters must close up for good now reason is coronavirus and what is coming next get people out of the dirty shelter off the streets sleeping off the trains sleeping now

  • * People can hold up well against stress if they are getting satisfaction from their work
    * The way to reduce burnout is to either change the environment or the individual
    * To cope with the work setting, set time boundaries. Don’t be infinitely available.
    * Prioritize sleep
    * Exercise
    * Meditation. Headspace.

    * Consider changing companies or jobs

  • I was really negativity primed by the last micrOOoHglia video of this guy but… this was more average than the last video. Unfortunately, like with the last video and many of these assotiative studies, it’s unclear what the cause of the association is. It’s e.g. unclear whether feeling disconnected with your kid is a mere consequence of being disorganized. Or the other way round, your personality is more prone to having difficulties relating to others in general. Well, yes, there’s an association… but what exactly have we learnt here?!
    Regardless of this, I’m not faulting the speaker (unlike last neurobiology upload)

  • I have been working 50+ hours at my job for years. Not to mention not fitting in well with the culture at my job.
    As Im now 50+ the rigors of all this is taking its toll on me physically. Thank you for a great video!

  • I like when he touches on human evolution not preparing us for this. This is something I’ve thought a lot about. We’re all supposed to conform to a cookie cutter 9-5 lifestyle and there’s so much emphasis put on “the hustle.” But we’re all so different with totally different needs and lifestyles that work best for us, and the 9-5 hustle doesn’t adapt with that diversity. The biggest tragedy is that instead of questioning the system itself, we just blame ourselves when we experience burnout. This has defined my twenties and I wish I had realized this truth much sooner.

  • Thank you so much for this! It’s so so so relatable. I have been a YouTuber for 7 years and just listening to “what it is” makes me feel relieved, like… oh I’m not going crazy ☺️

  • I had a question. What if anything burns you out? I match a lot of burnout in that if I can relax and do whatever I want I feel okay and I am able to relax, but then the second school starts back up I feel burned out in a matter of weeks or sometimes days. Also, it isn’t just school. It is like if I have to do anything in my life and I can’t just relax and do nothing, I start to get stressed and anxious and burnout. This is where I start to feel a more general hopelessness as if no matter what I do, I can never be content. I am always just going to suffer unless I am able to remove responsibility from my life which isn’t possible. I am also in the process of getting diagnosed with ADHD, so maybe it has something to do with that, but idk. It is hard to figure out what’s going on in my brain when different things match parts of different disorders, but nothing perfectly.

  • Key to life is to live a simple life. “Go to school, get married, have kids, get a mortgage, get a well paying job to sustain this life style”….it goes on and on. Simple life is best.

  • 3:50 The Sunday evening dread is what brought me here. I have a great paying job that pays bills, but I don’t like being there. It’s now Sunday evening, and it’s the last day of a 2 week break from work. I was giddy for the first week, but I began feeling depressed about going back. I think I’m just burned out. I’ve held this job for 15 years and have reported to the same director, who has no desire to develop her direct reports. Everyone reporting to her is basically there to help her succeed in her role. She continually hires external people to fill senior roles and does not promote anyone existing in our division into these roles. The only way up, is to leave. I guess I’ve had enough of my job, but I feel afraid to leave and start over.

  • I’ve suffered from depression at times in my life especially as a teen and young adult when I had major breakdowns. A really toxic work environment in 2011 really messed me up though, and in general, the work I was doing burned me out over a course of 14 years, so now I’m trying to retrain into something less demanding.

  • Thank you for this. I was starting to feel crippling burnout earlier in the year (a mix of a long commute and a toxic and isolated office environment) to the point where I would consistently oversleep, and feel like I had to physically drag myself to work each day. I was trying to figure out how to address it with my employer by advocating for a partial remote schedule when the pandemic hit. Once allowed to work from home full-time due to the shelter-in-place mandates, my overall mood and attitude to my work improved significantly. Now forced to return to the office, my anxiety levels are suddenly back up, and I’m having mood swings, episodes of sleepless and diarrhea, plus brain fog on the days I have to go in. It’s becoming pretty clear that a minor adjustment in my schedule isn’t going to fix this, and I need to find a long-term solution in the form another job.

  • BURN-OUT
    En daar zat Cavia weer op kantoor. Buiten woei het, en er tikte een tak tegen het raam.
    Kim mailde: ‘Maar wat is er dan gebeurd?’
    ‘Enzo moest ineens terug. Vanwege de raad van bestuur. Maar verder was het heel leuk.’
    Gelukkig had Enzo haar meteen gebeld toen ze weer in Nederland waren. En hij had gezegd dat ze snel weer gingen afspreken. Maar ze wist niet of ze hem nu moest bellen of juist niet.
    Kim begon met rollende ogen haar aandacht te vragen maar omdat Ruud dit soort onderonsjes altijd meteen doorhad, mailde Cavia snel: ‘Later.’
    ‘Daar hou ik je aan!’ mailde Kim terug. 
    Even later kwam er ook een mail van Roy binnen, waar alleen maar in stond: ‘Wat hoor ik nou?’
    Meteen daarna zei Ruud ineens: ‘Zo Caaf, heb je de banden met het moederconcern even lekker strak aangehaald?’ Hij lachte.
    ‘Hm,’ zei Cavia.
    Het was stil. Kim mailde: ‘Hij heeft het niet van mij.’
    ‘Ja, mag ik even iedereens aandacht?’ klonk het ineens uit de hoek van Stella. ‘Harm-Jan van IT komt voorlopig niet meer op het werk omdat hij een burn-out heeft, dus als iemand nog een neefje heeft dat iets van IT weet…’
    ‘Hè?’ zei Kim. ‘Harm-Jan?’
    ‘Wilde hij dat zelf wel?’ vroeg Cavia achterdochtig.
    ‘Nou, dat laat ik even in het midden,’ zei Stella. ‘Maar in algemene zin kan ik erover zeggen dat we hier werken met mensen die gemotiveerd zijn en er voor de volle tweehonderd procent voor kunnen gaan, en anders zoeken we naar een oplossing.’ 
    ‘Maar hij komt toch wel terug?’ vroeg Kim. 
    ‘Daar gaat de bedrijfsarts over,’ zei Stella, ‘maar de kern van mijn boodschap was dus: áls je een werkloze nerd kent… graag melden.’ 
    ‘Burn-out is natuurlijk ook gewoon een ander woord voor aanstelleritis,’ zei Ruud. 
    ‘Nou Ruud, dat moet je niet zeggen,’ begon Kim, ‘ik ken iemand die helemaal niet meer kon ademen, echt!’
    ‘Als je helemaal niet meer kunt ademen, dan ga je dood,’ zei Ruud. ‘Wat uiteindelijk ook een oplossing van het probleem is.’
    Het was even stil.
    Cavia’s telefoon trilde. Een sms. Van Enzo.
    ‘Ik kan best lekker koken,’ stond er.

  • This is a tough one for me, because I had a depression diagnosis before I started a job, but I did okay for a while there, a couple of years( even though I never really felt as if I fit in, never felt part of the team). After a while, I became so unhappy there that I started going in late, missing days; I would complete my work on other days, at night, though. I ended up having a major depressive episode, with hospitalization, and while I was in the hospital, just before I was to discharge, I developed some severe anxiety at the thought of going back to the job. I’d never ever experienced that before. So, I’m just not sure what to call that.:-/

  • Okay. So I’m depressed and burnt out. I changed jobs because I knew the one I had was burning me out, but then 4 days into training for my new job, my new employer got rid of me. I tried to look on the bright side, and consider my unemployment an “unplanned vacation.” I tried to take it easy, and “reset.” I tried to think of a new plan. I tried to stick to a routine and pull myself back together. I simply can’t shake the feeling that anything I try to do simply won’t work because I’ve been the problem all along.
    I get it, Dr. Marks. You would put me on anti-depressants. Problem solved. Now, can you prescribe me anything for no mental health insurance coverage?

  • Modern culture places too high of an emphasis on reproduction. From my own anecdotal observations, I’d guess that under 30% of Americans are mentally qualified to actually raise children, and about that percentage have genes that might be beneficial to future generations. My own parents should not have been allowed to have kids. They’re both too self centered, typical of the baby boomer generation. And they’re genes did not produce very good results either.

  • I am just thankful Dr. Marks that you made videos such as these. I sure am suffering from something.

    I feel like I am losing it everytime I am in distress. My doctor said I am having anxiety so I am happy I was able to watch your videos.

  • Idk if im emotionally brunt out bc i dont know what i can stress about? I dont really think about the corona so idk and im 12? So-? But i feel overwhelmed and get headachesfor a couple weeks now i dont feel like tidying my room or taking care of myself i stay in bed all day and cry? Why do i get angry so easily bc idk why i just hate that and i stay in my room all day? So i get rest but i still feel like shit so i don’t know anymore i feel numb at times i just want to talk to someone but at the same time i don’t wanna annoy people sorry im prob just lazy and annoying sorry if you read that all:(

  • My parents didn’t even show up to my Highschool graduation…. they still Tell me how stressful it was to ignore me. Not everybody should have kids.

  • I’ve felt de personalized and unappreciated at work. The people are toxic. I’m not legally getting paid all I’m working for. But with covid going on and no vehicle I’m limited to a small town and my only option would be customer service. I quit customer service after 8 years because it drained me of having any self worth. I really don’t want to go back

  • Also very cool when you think about the amygdala getting larger and the impact on the prefrontal cortex as it relates to some of the more impulsive symptoms of burnout like absenteeism, ethical issues, and irritability. The enlarged amygdala is pushing impulsivity!

  • Took care of an expensive fake baby like 2 years ago for a high school and i burned out but he 1st time it cried, i shall never have kids. Pressed the kill switch

  • Thank you. I quit my job today after my manager told me my work had become crappy. I realized she was right. I haven’t felt engaged with my job for 6 months or more. Have been unable to focus, write, and feel apathetic. I didn’t realize I was burnt out until my girlfriend described that my brain fogginess sounded like burn out.

    My question is, has COVID made it more difficult for people to tell the difference? For a while I thought the epidemic was what made me depressed. But putting in my two weeks has already shifted my mood a bit.

  • I have this problem and it is multiple by the situation of chronic debilitating pain. I was not a perfect parent but I was 85% better to my other children. My last child is only getting leftovers. She is also my hardest child to raise because, she is smart, headstrong. She had so much energy, we all have a hard time keeping up.

  • Hi there, thank you for your message. 2 years ago I suffered a mental breakdown/burnout and was hospitalized for near suicide. It was from being over worked and heart broken. I am 29 now. Can I fully recover? Thank you. I am currently seeing a phsycologist and phsyciatrist, I’m just terrified about going back to work

  • My husband always is in automatic it scares me specially if he’s driving I know he is in that mode when he starts repeating his own words time and time again I can predict what he says before he does is there a link?

  • Wow, thanks. I’ve been confused about the difference.

    I now understand I’m in a burnout phase. I have so much work piled up and so many missed deliverables that I don’t see myself catching up. The idea of someone even talking half of my workload would make me happier.

  • This so correct. The burnout can trigger a depression. That’s what happened to me 1 year ago. I felt totally trapt in a job that was not fulfilling in any way that I couldn’t function any more. I was 62 years old and had no perspective. Afther 2 1/2 years I finally got better. I’m retired and doing good.
    Thank you for the clear information ����

  • Currently reducing my burnout by simply living day to day and trying not to focus on the future too much because that’s a great source of anxiety for me! But then again seeing the bigger picture also helps?? Also lots of naps and cuddles when I’m at home from work.

  • For me, it really helped to know that we can suffer from burnout from things not necessarily job-related like being a stay at home mom or maybe even studying. Because there were times in my life when I was going through this and I wasn’t working at that time. I had no idea why I was being so… emotional. Naturally, if the amygdala is enlarged, it’d make things like anger outbursts or even crying spells that much more common and it helps me understand myself better. Thanks Katie, really helped <3

  • Misdiagnosed. I was misdiagnosed. Burned-out I was, not depressed; because my brain was overloaded when using an SSRI and Remron. Which changed who I’m in a matter of two weeks.

  • Very nicely produced video!
    Camera, sound and editing is great!
    (Also liked the animations)

    I long thought burnout was the same as exhaustion disorder, but your videos have helped make them separate!
    Is exhaustion disorder a thing in the US?

  • I’m almost crying from watching this video. As a self-funded PhD researcher, I’ve been incredibly driven and engaged in my work but in the last couple of months my supervisor has turned against me, discarded all my work and made me feel completely worthless. Most of my thoughts now revolve around feeling lost, empty and dumb. And for the first time in my life, I’ve lost all interest in what I do.

  • Glad to find your videos today. I’m having a burnout recently, I think. At some point, I can even skipped a meal just because I wanted to sleep. I’ve tried to set boundaries now. Looks like it kinda worked, but not too consistent since I still can feel guilty about it.

  • I’ve been diagnosed with dysthymia(10+ years ago), but I think I’m experiencing burn out (probably have been for a couple years). I’ve said for 4 years that my job doesn’t utilize any of my skills/strengths and requires that I work harder to compensate for my weaknesses. Plus, I’m a single parent who receives no outside assistance, no child supportno government assistance. My parents have offered watch my kiddo for a few hours a week so he gets a break from his after school program (i.e. while I am at work). That’s it.
    I thought I was depressed but…. when I do get away for a little bit. It feels SO NICE.
    Thank you SO MUCH. This was very helpful. Time to make some scary changes….

  • growing up with a burnt out parent is especially hard. it sucks being a kid and feeling like your parent doesn’t love you or want you.

  • This is sort of unrelated but this is the only place I can think of to ask this. My friends mom drinks a lot and is abusive but my friend still loves her mom and doesn’t want to tell cps. I don’t know what to do and how I can support her.

  • Thank you so much for this video. My 19yr old daughter was 5150 and 5250 due to a hypomania episode she never had displayed before. She was diagnosed w BD and we are devastated. We are supporting her and you made me understand w all of your videos! Thank you.

  • I had experienced burnout and it brought me to the point of contemplating suicide. After an anxiety attack from the heavy workload & loss of heart in what I was doing I had a wake up call. I always thought I was never doing enough and after taking a break to step back. I realized how great I do have it and I am now seeking ways to really have a full life outside of work. Also, to actually enjoy the fruits of my labour which has paid off in ways I couldn’t realize in the dread of another work day. So far, I am feeling a lot better now. But, thank you for touching on this topic in such depth. Super excited to watch the rest of this series.:)

  • More activation or activation at abnormal times makes sense. As far as I recall, that’s what happens when we are consistently over-aroused. The amygdala becoming bigger, due to it’s overuse, is logical as well. If it does become bigger, does that mean efficiency is decreased? And, if efficiency is decreased, would an appropriate treatment be in the efficient use of fight or flight system?

    Okay, so follow me on this logic:

    Working through a phobia is liking working for the effective use of fight or flight.
    When to use fight or flight is learning the effective use.

    However, if we never allow the phobia to fully develop, fight or flight is working effectively.
    Yet, we may be able to develop a more efficient use of the fight or flight system.
    To do so, we must be able to rationalize fears before they become full-blown phobias.
    So, slowly developing the understanding of a smaller and less intense fear to be irrational is the process of developing an efficient use of the fight or flight system.
    It becomes more efficient in the sense that we are able to decide by the mechanisms at which we previously utilized for any novel fears.
    That is, we are better prepared to understand which things are worth fearing and which are irrational fears.

    This doesn’t really apply to burnout quite as easily. But, it may have some importance in situations in which people are not able to leave their profession as easily. Being able to rationalize the steps for being able to leave a burnout situation may be important. What do you think?

  • I’d need a lot longer than a week of stress-free living. But it would definitely help. I actually feel pretty optimistic, but only if I had time to de-stress. I’m just glad I’m not in a pit of depression.

  • im burnt out yet i don’t know that i am. and now that i know that i am burnt out, it is already leading me to depression. any ways to help?

  • I think burnout is as much a societal problem as an individual one. It would be interesting to ascertain what the baseline norm of not being burnt out is, how many would fit that criteria? It’s clear that at times of recession, burnout will be an epidemic in some sections of society, The needs to survive as opposed to the tendencies to strive are maybe as prone, where the immediate and pressing needs of sufficiency are barely achieved or need constant repeated efforts to do so. Having some sense of possibility and choice are human needs and this for many is in scarce supply.

  • Thank you for this video. I wonder what does a person do if they are battling depression that has lead to feelings of burnout and its a cycle of suicidal thoughts the desire to run away but then the idea of a holiday makes you think “whats the point!?” I hope you can advise. Thank you
