Master Discovery ๑ Four Sessions on a Burnout


Master Discovery ๑ Four Sessions on a Burnout

Burnout seems to have become a mass phenomenon, receiving constant media attention. More and more people are missing work due to burnout. In Amsterdam, one out of 5 employees are suffering from burnout complaints

You don't wake up one morning and all of a sudden "have burnout." Its nature is much more insidious, creeping up on us over time like a slow leak, which makes it much harder to recognize. Still, our bodies and minds do give us warnings, and if you know what to look for, you can recognize it before it's too late.

Burnout is considered to have a wide range of symptoms. There is no general agreement about which of those are part of burnout and which are not.
A stressful lifestyle can put people under extreme pressure, to the point that they feel exhausted, empty, burned out, and unable to cope.

There are three main areas of symptoms that are considered to be signs of burnout:

Such as chronic fatigue, insomnia, forgetfulness, impaired concentration and attention. Physical symptoms; such as chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting or headaches. Increased illness, loss of appetite, anxiety, depression and anger.

Such as loss of enjoyment, increased pessimism, isolation and detachment.

Such as feelings of apathy and hopelessness. Increased irritability. Lack of productivity and poor performance.

If you are experiencing some of these symptoms, this should be a wake-up call that you may be on the path towards a burnout. Take some time to honestly assess the amount of stress in your life and find ways to reduce it before it's too late. Burnout isn't like the flu; it doesn't go away after a few weeks unless you make some changes in your life. And as hard as that may seem, it's the smartest thing to do because making a few little changes now will keep you in the race with a lot of gas to get you across the finish line.

The term “burnout” was coined in the 1970s by the American psychologist Herbert Freudenberger. He used it to describe the consequences of severe stress and high ideals in “helping” professions. Doctors and nurses, for example, who sacrifice themselves for others, would often end up being “burned out” – exhausted, listless, and unable to cope. Nowadays, the term is not only used for these helping professions, or for the dark side of self-sacrifice. It seems it can affect anyone, from stressed-out careerists and celebrities to overworked employees and homemakers.

About Alicia Ingruber - Certified Yoga Instructor
Alicia is a certified Vinyasa, Core Flow, Yin and Hiit Yoga Teacher. Yoga was first introduced to Alicia in a doctor’s office in Australia. At 17 years old, she had just moved back to her home country and was going through a difficult time. The heartbreak of leaving behind her life overseas and the stress of trying to fit into a new school cause her to develop chronic pain. Her doctor prescribed yoga but the only class that was available in her area was a Body Balance class at the local gym – a mix of Yoga, Pilates, and Thai Chi. It was challenging but she knew she needed more of it, which led her to explore other forms of exercise and feel the empowerment of movement as medicine. Yoga then became a central part of her life, helping her build confidence, nurture her sense of self-love and heal her through heartbreak and burnout. Alicia firmly believes that yoga is for everyone, it’s just about finding the style and teacher that resonates best with you.
