Burnout Q&A

What is burnout?

Burnout is mental and physical exhaustion caused by prolonged stress. You feel overwhelmed and emotionally drained, unable to cope with work or whatever’s responsible for your stress.

Burnout can make you lose interest in what used to inspire you, so you may lack motivation. You might also experience effects such as:

  • Not caring anymore
  • Feeling you’re losing emotional control
  • Pessimistic attitude
  • Trouble starting tasks
  • Lack of energy
  • Fall in productivity
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Disillusionment
  • Sleeplessness
  • Frequent headaches
  • Digestive upsets
  • Detachment
  • Loss of empathy
  • Feeling like a failure

When you experience burnout, you can’t perform to the same standards and are likely to hit a mental wall that you find impossible to get over.

Who experiences burnout?

Burnout could affect anyone who’s under constant, severe stress. Careers that have high rates of burnout include:

  • Caregivers
  • Therapists
  • Counselors
  • Clergy
  • Health professionals
  • Doctors
  • Lawyers
  • Accountants
  • IT professionals
  • Businessmen
  • Financial advisers

In Dr. Calm’s experience, professional burnout is alarmingly high because the corporate world is an extremely stressful environment. It’s full of endless projects, increasing conflicts, tight deadlines, hypocrisy, and more, which all lead to burnout.

As mentioned above, professional burnout is, unfortunately, very common. But there are other types of burnout, including: 


  • Physician burnout
  • College burnout
  • Celebrity burnout

Unless people learn how to handle pressure gracefully and stay calm, they often come to regret the stressful life they lead. The money they might have, the education they earn, and their status can’t bring back the years of life lost to anxiety, worry, and fear.

Dr. Calm encourages people to stop putting their health at stake for a career and wealth. Instead, patients learn to balance career success and personal happiness using techniques like Dr. Calm’s PET system.

What are the other types of burnout? 

How is burnout treated?

Dr. Calm specializes in treating stress and burnout using functional medicine. This approach involves identifying and addressing everything in your life that caused or worsened your burnout.

Talk therapy techniques like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) help you challenge negative self-talk. Psychoanalytic approaches look at the experiences and problems you’ve had that led to a stress buildup.

Dr. Calm uses the unique PET system to help people recover from burnout. PET achieves dramatic results with a program of regular telehealth consultations where you can address your challenges in a safe, secure environment.

If you feel overwhelmed and ready to break, call Dr. Calm today to find out more about the benefits of PET. You can also schedule a telehealth consultation using the online booking tool.
