If you’re feeling not yourself during this pandemic, you are not alone. Many people are off their game or feeling burned out during this pandemic.
The classic symptoms of burnout are feelings of emotional exhaustion, cynicism, and ineffectiveness. In addition, while burnout isn’t recognized as a medical term in the United States, it is considered an occupational disease in the European Union and a legitimate diagnosis by the World Health Organization.
Moreover, according to one study, women are more likely to struggle with the condition and report higher levels of burnout. Men also suffer from burnout and exhibit different symptoms. Moreover, the reasons for burnout while working from home can vary dramatically among different remote workers during this period of uncertainty and routine change. The research shows that women tend to burn out because of emotional exhaustion, and men burn out because of cynicism.
