What are the symptoms of burnout?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Identify the symptoms of burnout and learn new ways to keep a meltdown at bay:
  • Emotional exhaustion. This symptom presents with the feeling of being emotionally drained, as if you feel you've got nothing left to give, even when dealing with the people and relationships that matter to you most.
  • Depersonalization. You feel mechanical and robotic. It's as if you're just going through the motions to survive the day. You feel as if your normal self has disappeared.
  • A sense of diminished personal accomplishment. Chronic stress can result in you feeling that you just can't get anything right. You may feel that you are failing at your job or in your relationships. You've become very hard on yourself.
