Only recently this year, the World Health Organization or better known as “WHO” for others, has released a statement classifying “Burnout” as a valid medical condition for employers and people. This announcement from WHO has paved way for better employer treatment and working compensation for every working class who are struggling with the notion of burnout and extreme fatigue.
We have leaped a victorious change towards a better mental health solution. In light of the recent announcement, many have made their speculation and opinion over the said news for burnout. Workers like you, have mainly expressed their approval and gratitude towards the said acknowledgment. Burnout used to be a general term that never weighed as a valid excuse for a medical leave. Burnout, as you know, has been closely related to the feeling of tiredness and so you are always advised to seek for a decent and enough rest.
But burnout is not just a normal or simple feeling of being tired. It reaches beyond the line of exhaustion and tiredness. Burnout is stress, anxiety, fatigue all catching and eating at you. You have to do something about it and make sure you provide solutions and resolve your growing problem for your burnout. Burnout has been validated as a medical condition because it’s not only detrimental for your mental health but it also feasts on your body.
You’ll be empty and dry to the core if you will let your burnout get the best of your condition. Take a break and cut yourself the slack that you deserve after working hours and hours in front of your computer screen or in front of your office desk. You need to breathe fresh air and start looking for more life outside your work. The only way is through and you owe it to yourself to rest for a bit and recharge the lost energy and will.
Where do you start?
You start by acknowledging that you are tired and worn out from all the burning out feeling you receive every day from work and from your duties as a functioning individual. You start by feeling and allowing it to subsides in you. The more you run away from tiredness the more it becomes powerful, running away from it only emboldens it to become bigger than you.

Change the way you live your life and look for a healthier and fuller way to enjoy the life that you have. Avoid burnout the right way and start it as you learn the techniques on how to deal or negotiate with it. The floor is yours to explore, escape the gaping feeling and start to breathe, move, and live free of worn out and burning feeling within your body and mind.
