Signs of Work-From-Home Burnout

• Energy Depletion

• Mental Distance From Work

Essentially, if you start calling in sick or procrastinating working, it may also indicate burnout from working. While some extent of procrastinating is usual in everyone, increased feelings of not wanting to work are indicators of mental exhaustion. Thus, to prevent having a mental distance from your work, it would be helpful to take adequate breaks when working, and you should not work for more than eight hours.

• Reduced Efficacy

Finally, burnout leads to reduced quality and productivity. If you work for long hours, chances are, the quality of your work reduces, especially when you skip breaks. As such, you should take adequate breaks to ensure that you do high-quality work. Besides, human beings are not robots, and rest is essential for us.
