Identify and Avoid Signs of Burnout with This Infographic

Normally infographics have an awful tendency to let meaningful information get lost in pretty pictures, but this one does a great job (although it’s a little tough to read) of outlining some common symptoms of burnout, like depression, insomnia, and frequent illness.

It leaves off resentment, but that could be a cause and not so much a symptom.

Either way, once you’ve recognized the signs of depression, the infographic does have some concrete suggestions for you, namely making sure you get enough sleep each night, working out and making it a habit, and remembering to take your breaks and vacations. That last tip is one we can’t overstate enough; breaks and vacations are critical, and they give you a chance to recharge, cool off, and slowly recover from the building fatigue and resentment that comes with any job, even if you love what you do.
