Stressed & Burnt Out?

In economic challenges times like we are experiencing today, one can only hold on tight to their existing job. The rate at which unemployment is going not to mention the sudden loss of jobs for many, the feeling is quite scary. In spite of this you get the feeling that some people are working in such a manner that you wonder is laziness a bug or are they not so aligned with the corporate vision or could it possibly be that indeed that are truly burnt out. Some still walk around in a lackadaisical manner, some are not sure of what is expected of them while others want the pay but do not fancy the work. Times have changed now if some could get two jobs that would grab it happily.

 

During my corporate trainings I hear participants express the stress they experience on the job and being stuck in the catch 24 situation with no way out. It is again at times like this that company’s must manage their resources to curtail heavy overhead costs so of course many people find themselves doing the job of two at time more. Chances are you will be experiencing the burnt-out syndrome. Somehow for many people being overworked is inevitable because it is a case of the survival of the fittest, but all to the detriment of good health. Sadly, we see it everyday people experiencing all sorts of ailments like cancer, diabetes, stroke, arthritis and cardiovascular occurrences at young ages and the age keeps dropping too.
