Do You Need Career Burnout Therapy?

Anyone who has ever worked a job has likely experienced feelings of frustration at one time or another.  Getting along with co-workers, taking on new responsibilities and issues regarding job satisfaction all work together to add to the stress level at the office. 

But sometimes these feelings of dissatisfaction and frustration go deeper.  There are times when an individual feels trapped in their current job – with no real prospects for the future and nothing to look forward to each morning.  The likely cause of these intense feeling is career burnout – a condition that affects millions people each year.  How serious is the problem?  Depression, drug addiction and feelings of hopeless are all symptoms of career burnout.

But how does someone know if they need career burnout therapy?  The following list represents some of the most common signs and symptoms of career burnout. 

Signs You May Need Career Burnout Therapy

  • Loss of energy.   Waking up in the morning and feeling a distinct lack of energy is a tell-tale sign of career burnout.   Individuals may feel as if they are “coming down with something” even though they should be completely healthy.   This psychosomatic condition illustrates how dissatisfaction that starts in the mind can spread to the body.
  • Depression.  People who need career burnout treatment have a hard time making it through the day without experiencing significant levels of depression.  Day after day, work becomes a chore, dragging the individual down into a chronic state of despair.
  • Lack of motivation.    Career burnout means that individuals are less likely to perform their job with as much enthusiasm as they once did.  They may be less inclined to volunteer for new projects – and do not work at peak performance on their current responsibilities.
  • Sleeplessness.  Career burnout brings with it agitation and restlessness.  For many people that means a loss of sleep over the thought of having to go to work in the morning.   Sleeplessness is a vicious cycle because individuals who do not get an adequate amount of sleep are more likely to perform their jobs poorly, which leads to feelings of inadequacy and burnout.
  • Hopelessness.  Perhaps the most insidious symptom of career burnout is the feeling of hopelessness that it can create.  Individuals who burn out at work may want to leave their jobs, but have come to a point where they feel no other company would want them.  They begin to lose hope in the future – which can spill over from the workplace into one’s personal life very quickly.
