OM is the new yes

Charlotte Willis reveals how to take stock of your life and learn to re-prioritise

Living life on 24/7 schedules can lead to something called job-related burnout. This is a stress-induced condition that involves physical and psychological exhaustion, reduced personal identity, and can lead to further mental health complications, including depression and chronic stress. Added worries from additional juggling of our partners, friends, social events, children, and even simple tasks such as cooking, can lead to burnout in our everyday lives. In her book Rushing Women’s Syndrome, Dr Libby Weaver details the threat to our health posed by a never ending list of tasks. Being tired but wired is an expression coined by Weaver, describing the feeling of pure mental exhilaration resulting from burnout-related exhaustion. We have a desperate need to carry on, save face, and breakdown later on. All because it’s hard to say no.

Diagnose yourself

It can be hard to see yourself burning out, or indeed to admit that you may need to take a step back. Our relentlessness to keep calm and carry on can lead us to develop a distinct disconnection with our bodies and minds. We get too busy to notice signals of distress, we fight through illnesses and push ourselves harder every day. If you think you might be experiencing burnout, or are concerned about how much time you dedicate to your work, this exercise may help you to identify the problem.
