The World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized that burnout is now classified as a disorder, just like other human disorders.

The organization, in turn, indicated that balancing work, family and social life is the key to protecting yourself from this disorder.

The problem of job burnout is global, so common, that the World Health Organization (WHO) highlighted it in its last meeting, and it affects people negatively and seriously.

The organization stated that a person is considered to have functional exhaustion in the following cases:

  • Feeling exhausted and losing energy
  • Negative feeling about work and your job
  • Low professional competence.

As for the reasons behind our feeling of job burnout, they are many and varied, but the most important of them are technology, and our constant contact with our job, whether through a mobile device or phone, which makes your job dominate your day and your thinking.

Unfortunately, job burnout is responsible for 120,000 deaths in the United States and increases the financial burden for medical interventions, according to the World Health Organization.

Highlighting this topic by the World Health Organization, would help reduce this problem and know the importance of separating your professional and family life and the necessity of vacations away from work.
