It's a familiar story. The new job's great. Then the boss starts piling on work. You're overstretched, there's nobody to help. Maybe you're not sleeping so well, drinking more. You avoid colleagues Sometimes you just stare at the screen all day. Then comes the final straw and you crack. This could mean walking out of the office, never to be seen again or even taking a gun to the boss. Burnout is a clinical term we all misuse. Coined in the '80s, it describes symptoms that have a familiar pattern, ending in a complete mental breakdown. And psychologists claim that up to 40% of the workforce suffer from it to some degree. The cure? Avoid the final stage (when it's too late) and seek help as soon as overwork hits. If you start thinking there's you and them, seek immediate assistance.
