7 signs of burnout


Hands up if you are guilty of working too hard. We all know that a lack of work-life balance can make you tired. But what if your tiredness becomes something more? 

Burnout occurs when normal levels of tiredness cross over into something more serious. You've been running on adrenaline, worried about stopping in case everything comes crashing down around you.

You feel the stress building but you've been pushing it down.
