Burnout Counseling: Feeling Overwhelmed Due To Work Stress?


Are You Feeling Overwhelmed Due To Workplace Stress?

I was “Is my mind not a part of my body? Why do I have to drag myself every day to the workplace even if I do not feel like going there?” That was the question of one of my clients right at the beginning of the session. He was agitated and asked me – Why can’t I write on my sick leave application – “I am feeling low and depressed! I need someone to talk to! Period!” Instead of answering his questions, I asked him (quite instinctively rather) just another question – “Are you feeling overwhelmed due to work stress?” Yes, this is a harsh reality for many professionals. Employee burnout is the “taboo” and most employers don’t want to tackle it.

Why Are Modern People Feeling Overwhelmed Due To Work Burnout?

The underlying causes of burnout can be either too much workload or too little work. Yes, under-challenged burnout is also a reality, where people don’t get enough scope to manifest their optimum potential in the workplace. Having said that, here most of the callers complained of unhealthy work-life balance due to excessive work pressure. Another primary reason for feeling overwhelmed in the workplace is workplace abuse. People from the LGBTQ community often experience additional discrimination at the workplace due to their orientation.

Companies with the best work-life balance often take that issue head-on. Despite that, we often notice a few departments within the company remained beyond burnout treatment. One of such departments where employees experience the most workplace stress is the sales department. Especially, after a certain age many employees find it difficult to chase the sales target regularly. Study shows every sector has its burnout issues.
