Accumulated stress, extreme fatigue, dietary changes, lack of motivation, irritability, and anxiety are some of the symptoms that cause mental exhaustion. For at least the last decade many people have mentioned having these symptoms, referring to the well-known Herbert Freudenberger burnout syndrome.
This syndrome is diagnosed for those people who work, who go to school, or who have an unbalanced daily life. In reality, we are all exposed to suffer the consequences of this syndrome, if the symptoms are not detected in time. And it is so common to feel tired, stressed, and anxious in these times, that many times we do not perceive that we can be mentally affected.
One of the factors that can trigger mental exhaustion is the lifestyle we lead, the burden of worries and not knowing how to handle them, as well as insecurity, which can be devastating to our health. That is why we must be very vigilant in order to act immediately and heal those emotional wounds that can even lead to death.
There will always be a light at the end of the tunnel
"Everything in this life has a solution, except death." This phrase makes sense when people feel devastated, heartless, and aimless. As much as it is difficult for you to find the answer you expect or the solution to adversity; Remember that there is always a solution that you may not have realized exists. All is not lost!
So cheer up! and learn to detect these signs in time:
1 You get irritated too easily
It is when you get very angry until you lose your sanity; Any comment they make to you will be an offense and therefore you will think that you should act defensively. You do not have control of your emotions and anger takes over. Your words are hurtful, your body movements are aggressive and you are filled with a feeling of anger for reasons you do not know.
You can improve this symptom when you pay attention to things that bother you, for example, people, places, situations, so you can anticipate situations that cause you to feel irritable and be able to control your emotions.
2 You have no motivation
Your whole life has become monotonous and routine, you live from day to day because you have to do it that way, you have lost the illusion to achieve your dreams and goals, you may come to think that life has no meaning. There is nothing to motivate you and you just act discouraging, tired, and discouraged.
It will be convenient to set short-term goals so that you can motivate yourself and feel good when you meet them. These goals should not be complicated, on the contrary, simple but they let you strive for what you want.
3 restless nights
On more than one occasion your problems do not let you sleep, your mind is activated at night and the only thing it causes is you have a feeling of helplessness, sadness, hopelessness. No matter how many attempts you make, you never get a good night's rest. Even your body physically is already exhausted.
To combat this symptom, I recommend doing meditation and relaxation routines before sleeping, it may be useful to listen to relaxing music with sounds of nature, listen to an audiobook with self-help themes, inhale and exhale deeply until you can concentrate.
4 You feel panic and anxiety
You will know that a panic and anxiety attack is a sudden episode of intense fear that you feel even though there is no real danger or apparent cause. Even your body reacts to that fear causing sweating, rapid heartbeat, tremors among other reactions.
When these attacks are very recurrent, it is necessary to go to a specialist in the field to help you control intense fears. Therapies and medications are of great help to improve your mental and emotional health.
5 you are impatient
You have lost the ability to wait for something without getting nervous and you are not apt to perform minute actions that require time and calm. You can't wait for the things you want to happen and that's why a constant feeling of defeat and failure invades you. Remember that everything in life requires time, for this reason, try to make an effort to endure, endure and tolerate; You can even ask for help so that you don't have to cope with difficulties or problems on your own.
6 Feeling of nostalgia
You may be fine for a while, but suddenly your eyes fill with tears for no apparent reason. You often live longing for happiness with a permanent feeling of sadness. Your thoughts are in the past or in an uncertain future, preventing you from living in the here and now. You even cry and cry but sometimes you don't know why.
Focusing on the present, on the things you do and have, will go a long way to avoid crying spells. Make an effort to think positive things and understand that you have happiness here and now.
Many times we cannot perceive the symptoms of this syndrome, simply because we do not pay attention to our feelings. Remember, health is not only physical but also emotional, therefore, it is important to balance these two aspects. Now, if you can't fight these symptoms on your own, don't hesitate to ask for help from a specialist. Do not be discouraged, soon you will find the peace and tranquility that you need so much.
