Overcoming Burnout: Recharging, Reenergizing and Restoring Your Power

First few Article Sentences

Multiple studies and research continue to report an escalation of stress, high pressure, and burnout in the workplace. Burnout is generally described as a reaction to prolonged or chronic job stress and is described as physical and emotional exhaustion, cynicism, and feelings of reduced professional ability. Burnout is often characterized as a sense of hopelessness and/or helplessness due to seemingly unresolvable situations and problems.

Gallup's 2018 study of 7,500 full-time employees found that two thirds of respondents are experiencing burnout on the job. They also reported of that group, 63% or more are likely to take a sick day and they are half as likely to openly discuss their performance goals. And, 23% are more likely to visit an emergency room and 2.6 times more likely to leave a current employer.
