How to Come Back from Burnout
by Peter Sacco
Have you ever felt like you are at the end of your rope when it comes to having energy and stamina?
What about when you feel like you are “just losing it” when it comes to your emotions? Perhaps you are feeling so stressed out that your emotions are going up and down like a crazy rollercoaster, or they have gotten to the point where you just feel completely numb.
Do you have problems remembering things that the simplest tasks seem like dreadful chores, or trying to remember a name seems like a major skill testing question?
Has it gotten to the point where you literally feel like you are going insane and just want to run away and be left completely alone?
If you have answered “yes” to most or all of these questions, you may definitely be at the stage of burnout.
Burnout can come in many forms and faces.
Often times one doesn’t know that they have reached the ultimate level of burnout until they reach “burnout”. Most people deal with life stresses each and every day and are able to manage things, or at least keep things in check from running them down. When they do get run down, it may result in shoulder/neck soreness and stiffness, and other minor aches or pains. Check out this free self-stress test here.
Some individuals will tax their immune systems during prolonged periods of stress and wind up with colds. Some folks may begin to suffer from headaches and stomach problems.
In most instances, the intensity of these ailments gets nullified or corrected when the individual is able to take a break in the form of a vacation from whatever is stressing them out.
Unfortunately, when you are unable to take a vacation or break from what is completely stressing you out, and you keep going and going, you may cope with things, truly believing that you are managing things, waiting for that break to eventually happen, but then things one day get out of hand and you literally begin to feel like a shell of yourself.
Most people can deal with and cope with stress for a short period of time, but too many lose track of how long they have actually been “coping” and it becomes a long-term thing!
When you start to feel that life is a burden, i.e.; getting up in the mornings is such a chore, you dread or even fear getting up in the mornings, you feel depressed, you feel nervous, experience episodes of anxiety, you are always tired but have difficulty sleeping soundly, you need to drink alcohol or take sedatives to calm you, you want to isolate yourself from everyone and everything, then you know that you are at burnout.
It is not a pleasant feeling in the least and can render you helpless.
If left untreated, it can lead to a serious anxiety disorder, phobias and even chronic depression. The key is to stop it and nip it in the bud!
Many people opt for medication from psychiatrists, GP’s or self-medicate using sleeping pills (Gravol or Benadryl, etc.) or even drink and they believe it takes the edge off. It may make them feel better for a short period of time, but the underlying problem is still there.
The individual needs a vacation and time to recharge their physical, mental and emotional batteries.
Hypnosis is one of the most immediate and lasting treatments for burnout.
Since the mind has become anxious, stressed and tired, hypnosis can help in undoing the negative damage that has been done to the unconscious mind by training it to have and focus on positive thoughts.
