Work burn out is a feeling that many of us have experienced in today’s workplace, and is described as an overwhelming sense of being at the end of our rope professionally. In a recent study, published by the Association for Psychological Science, there were three types of burnout identified:
Overload burnout refers to burnout caused by excessive, frantic working until exhaustion sets in. Overload burnout is associated with the emotional venting coping strategy.
Under-challenged burnout is caused by boredom and a lack of personal development in the workplace. Under-challenged burnout is associated with the avoidance coping strategy.
Worn-out burnout results from giving up in the face of work related stress. The worn-out burnout is associated with the helpless coping style.
Work burnout is unique to an individual’s stress tolerance and how they cope with work stress. By identifying and understanding our burnout type, each of us can try to find ways to relieve and deal with the impact of stress in our lives.
