Going Through The Motions
Some people are rapidly fizzing out and refuse to admit they are on the path to burnout. To accept it and not do anything will only strengthen the inevitable downfall. Moreover, this Is the worst case of burnout. Ignoring the problem will not make it disappear and will soon result to anger and bitterness worse, opportunities will pass you by. People will notice the attitude of just going through the motions for the sake of doing or accomplishing things, or just for the sake of income which the job brings. Eventually, they will regard you as doomed unless you change the situation.

A Career Change

When the passion and drive that used to inspire you to do your best has been snuffed out, disabling you from going on further with your career, make that shift. Maybe a new profession perspective. However, changing careers may not credit some of the precious experiences you have already gained as relevant to your new-found endeavor. Moreover, competition will put you with much younger people who are willing to accept lower salaries, thus, affect your bargaining power. In addition, the demands of a new career may be much more difficult to handle due to your lack of experience than just successfully turning a temporary burnout situation around.

Changing Jobs

As compared to career change, a change of job within the same field of endeavor or profession is just like having the same job but in a totally different environment. Your skills and the previous experiences you have acquired will be transferable and allows you to rededicate your original goals to start anew, without being reminded of the burdens that come with staying on the same job. Those individuals who were disillusioned their previous employers may benefit in job change. However, the downside of this situation again if the burnout is the job itself and not the other factors such as management and co-workers. Taking this step positively is hard, one must really understand the cause of burnout and make sure to avoid it.

Wake-up Call

Some individuals think that feeling of burn out is time to re-center and re-evaluate their lifestyles and what they want to achieve. This form of stress management is one of the most positive way to handle burnout. It is the sense of failure by talking with somebody who may have experienced the same burnout situation. They have realized why the work you have generously given and efforts you have exerted. This means nothing, for you to do well has not worked out to your advantage. This person to avoid prejudice will only complicate matters. The realization may lead you to yourself or to other people as the one to be blamed. But its important not to beat yourself up, don;t even harbor blame or guilt.

Moving On.

Step back and fix your Headspace.

When people come to terms with the situation, they will learn that hard work is not the only thing that matters, that major achievements need the support of other people, and most importantly, that they are not superhuman. They will learn and communicate problems to avoid repeating mistakes. Start with your Doctor, inquire about therapies and stress management programs. Explain your burnout situation, stress and anxiety. And remember never feel guilty. You can get through this too. If you are planning to leave your stressful career, be sure to clear your headspace.
