Our society is becoming faster and faster, and burnout is now more and more frequent. Burnout can begin relatively inconspicuously and then lead to an inability to work. The signs of the onset of burnout are many. The feeling of not having time or being indispensable, always putting one’s own needs aside, and so on. The symptoms of burnout can also vary. Discontent, tetchiness, lethargy and exhaustion, restlessness, palpitations or ringing in the ears and tinnitus can point to burnout and should be discussed with your doctor. However, you can also deal with burnout using preventive measures. One such measure is rest and good sleep. Half an hour to one hour of extra sleep per night or a power nap during the day can keep your strength up.
