Knowing how to recognise the signs that indicate you are burnt out is important to be healthy mentally and emotionally.
If we’re burnt out, we cannot operate at our best, which can lead to costly mistakes.
What Does it Mean to Be Burnt Out
Reaching a state of burnout goes beyond feeling tired. It’s when we force ourselves to go beyond our mental and physical limits resulting in serious consequences.
Some of these consequences can include:
- Poor judgment which can lead to big mistakes.
- Not making right decisions.
- Not concentrating on what we’re doing.
When we pay attention to signs that indicate we’re burnt out, we can take corrective actions to get back on track.
