We've all experienced stress at work. But how do you recognise when you are on the path to burnout?
And how can you prevent it?
During the pandemic, everyone has been under different pressures.
In my circle of friends and family people have been struggling to get by on furlough wages. Many have been dreading about the future. And some have lost their jobs completely.
Most of my friends who are working from home agree that work/life balance has gone completely out of the window.
I managed a socially distance walk with a friend in a corporate job recently. We both admitted that whilst at home we are working at least an extra 10-15 hours a week, sometimes more. And that is not sustainable in the long term.
While many people may be doing very well working from home. Now is the time to step back and evaluate if what we are doing is working and check in with our stress management skills.
