Modern life has become very stressful as we engage in time-pressured activities, multi-tasking and coping with endless to-do lists. We are overdosing on social media and addicted to our mobile phones! We take on more and more until we realize that what used to be a challenge becomes now a heavy burden and we feel unable to carry on with a joyful heart- the enthusiasm has died down. Deep inside us, our cells are screaming ‘STOP, STOP ‘
This is burnout zone and we now need a proper treatment with rest- just like having a bad flu needs medication and rest. For if we do not take action now, we are opening the doors to exhaustion, depression, addictions or a major health breakdown. Burnout is the result of long term stress and accumulated fatigue and if left untreated it can very often open the doors of addiction to alcohol and drugs as we are desperately seeking a quick self-medication to find relief.
