According to HSE, around 12.5 million working days are lost due to work related stress in 2017 with 526,000 British workers suffering from Mental Health issues such as depression and anxiety.
Following these recent statistics, Ciara Morrison, Head of HR and Talent at Instant Offices identifies the early signs of Burnout and how to effectively avoid hitting rock bottom.
If your work and family life are consistently stressful, you’re almost certainly at risk of burnout. Most people only realise that they are truly burnt out when it’s too late and then they need to work towards eliminating the symptoms, often while still having to deal with the stresses that caused it in the first place.
But by keeping an eye out for warning signs can help you make changes proactively, making it easier to prevent burnout, while you still have the will and motivation to make the changes required.
