You’ve already heard of work burnout. It’s not a myth; it’s realer than you can imagine. And it’s something that should not be taken lightly. Working hard is good, but not at the expense of your personal and mental health. So when should you take a quick break from work? Here are some signs to watch out for.
When you forget to eat or take care of yourself, in general.
When you can’t sleep because of stress.
When you’re already getting sick.
Now, this one’s already major. When you can’t eat and sleep properly, your immune system goes down and you get sick. I think there’s not a job out there that’s worth having your health compromised for. It’s one thing to be passionate about something but it’s totally another thing to let your job take precedence over everything else in your life.
When you find it hard to get up in the morning.
When the thought of another work day makes you sad.
