When does burnout occur?
Burnout occurs when a high amount of effort reaps rewards that are below expectations, which negatively impacts the individual over time.
How does burnout occur?
It occurs when perceived healthy stress is left to evolve on its own without proper self-care (be it emotionally, physically, mentally, or spiritually), which gradually leads to a perpetual cycle of habitual burnout where stress and negativity became part and parcel of work life.
