There can be many causes of burnout, and its consequences can have negative, even serious effects on a person’s health and on their life as a whole. The term burnout indicates a situation of exhaustion and loss of stimuli, and is often connected to the working environment. Burnout can be avoided and we can actually come back from it, but how? In Extinguish Burnout: A Practical Guide to Prevention and Recovery, authors Rob and Terri Bogue set out a path to help us understand what burnout is, to recognise its symptoms and to develop the resources we need to prevent or come out of this condition.
