Leave Boreout behind – Step by step

When work life changes, we try to change with it. People often can adapt but in the past years there has been an increase in “chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.” One result almost everyone has heard about is Burnout, which received its own ICD code in 2018. “It is characterized by three dimensions: 1) feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion; 2) increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job; and 3) reduced professional efficacy.

We might feel like we need to push ourselves and appear indestructible like a rock in the sea, withstanding all weathers.

We had to adjust to changes in social protocols and a switch to mostly technology-based communication, like video calls and messaging apps, we had to find a way to adapt to working from home, despite having no main office space in the house, and the regular chores to take care of. For many the comforting routine of going to the office suddenly ceased. Keeping up the motivation to work all day, while also being surrounded by home’s comforts and family members seemed nearly impossible. Adjusting to all of this, […]
