ZeroHedge- The Epidemic Nobody Talks About: Burnout
The epidemic kind of burnout isn’t temporary. Taking a weekend off doesn’t restore one’s ability to work. This kind of burnout is the collapse of one’s ability to go to work at all, a physical, emotional and psychological collapse.
Burnout isn’t just the result of overwork. It’s the collapse of the entire no limits, self-exploitation way of life.
People who haven’t burned out are at a loss to understand this collapse, as it’s so far outside their experience. Those who love their jobs and have boundless energy can’t understand those who have been running on empty for far too long and are now too exhausted to get out of bed.
