Posted November 18, 2019 12:25:38It’s a common myth that a burnout can be prevented.
But research suggests that it may be difficult to avoid.
The latest research from the University of Melbourne reveals that the more you exercise, the worse your brain becomes at recognising burnout and coping with it.
The study, which involved nearly 2,000 participants, was published in the Australian Journal of Psychology.
It was led by the University’s Professor of Psychology Dr David Anderson.
“I’ve always thought burnout was an interesting concept to explore in a scientific way.
We have a lot of research that suggests it may actually be more challenging to make people feel comfortable, to make them feel like they can cope,” he said.”
If we can reduce the level of stress and worry that is felt by people who have burnouts, then they’re more likely to be more productive, more productive in the workplace and have more success in their career.”
So, to be clear, a lot is being done in the scientific research to help people understand what it is that they’re going through.””
Burnout is a very real issue for people who work in different fields.
“Professor Anderson said the study revealed that burnout could be prevented through the right interventions.”
It’s quite simple.
If you can reduce stress and anxiety, then you can mitigate burnout,” he explained.”
You can reduce burnout by reducing the amount of time you spend exercising, and then reducing the number of hours you work.
“The study also revealed that the burnout experienced by some people is quite different from that experienced by others.”
People who have more burnout are usually in their mid-50s, are often older, and are often unemployed,” Professor Anderson said.
Dr Anderson said this type of burnout had no impact on people’s lives.”
They’re doing work that they love and they’re spending a lot more time with their family,” he added.”
And the result is that it’s the kind of burn out that can be extremely debilitating and very difficult to manage.
“Professor David Anderson, Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University, said the burn out experienced by people was different to that experienced, in, for example, a doctor or a nurse.”
There’s a lot that happens in the mind and the body that can change it,” he noted.”
We know from previous research that when people are stressed and anxious, their brain becomes more active, which can be quite scary and disorienting.
“But if you’re not in those states, the brain is less likely to react to stress and fear in a way that is actually conducive to coping with stress.”
The research showed that there was a correlation between the number and type of exercises that participants performed, the intensity of the exercise, and the severity of their burnout.
“One of the reasons that we’ve seen these correlations is that people who exercise a lot tend to be people who are very anxious, and we see that as being associated with a lot less stress and a lot fewer burnouts,” Professor David Anderson said
