What is Stress & Burnout?
Stress permeates various aspects of our lives, encompassing minor stressors like punctuality and major life-altering events such as relationship breakdowns. Its manifestations span domains such as finances, work commitments, and personal relationships. When faced with short-term stressors, our brain activates the 'fight or flight response,' an ancient survival mechanism. This response triggers a cascade of physiological changes, including heightened heart rate, accelerated breathing, muscle tension, and a perturbed stomach. These bodily reactions prime us for the impending challenge.
Although stress can sometimes serve as a constructive motivator, persistent or recurrent stressors with inadequate recovery intervals can lead to a range of negative outcomes. Individuals might experience mood swings, fatigue, a sense of being overwhelmed, sleep disturbances, anxiety, anger, irritability, reduced self-assurance, gastrointestinal discomfort, difficulty concentrating, and eventually, burnout.
