Therapy for Work Burnout in Chicago, IL
You’re utterly empty. In fact, you're past the point of return, it seems. Little ability to complete a thought, less ability to experience a positive emotion, and certainly barely making it across the finish line for simple work tasks.
It’s more than just being tired. You're being tapped. Having quite literally nothing left at the bottom of the barrel. It’s like your brain is a car engine that just will not turn over. No amount of a “good night’s sleep” or great sweat session or a self-care moment like a massage is moving the needle.
That’s because you’re more than just tired. You’re more than just overworked.
You’re burned out.
It’s now creeping into your home life, too. Laundry and basic errands that used to be handled with minimal effort are feeling painful…if they are getting done at all. You try to rest, but feel so wound up. So much so, that even “rest” feels like a chore because you just can’t settle in.
You try socializing or leaning into your support systems, but that keyed-up feeling lurks within, and it is getting more difficult to maintain any semblance of being “put together” or “okay” in front of friends and family. It may be time to get support with occupational stress, work burnout, and corporate burnout from a skilled therapist.
Symptoms of Work Burnout:
exhaustion, but struggle to sleep
interruption in normal focus or concentration abilities
decrease in appetite
everything feels like it takes a herculean effort
poor problem-solving abilities
