As we shift to the new normal of working from home, many are calling for a permanent shift to their working pattern and flexibility. However, recent research from LinkedIn in partnership with The Mental Health Foundation suggests that over half of UK workers are feeling more stressed or anxious since they've been working from home. This constant state of anxiety can lead to burnout.
This “occupational phenomenon” is a state of emotional, physical and mental exhaustion caused by extreme and prolonged stress. Burnout can leave people exhausted, unmotivated, anxious and cynical – the consequences of which can be catastrophic. As well as impacting professional growth, research suggests that these extreme stress levels can impair social skills, overwhelm cognitive ability and eventually lead to changes in brain function.
