Understanding what burnout is to avoid making the mistake of taking on too much
The pace of both work and daily life can be extremely frenetic in these modern times, and people often end up thinking that they are not doing enough, or that they should work harder to achieve more in less time. At times, we might find ourselves having to manage several different things that each require our full attention, such as caring for a family member who is unwell, which happened to the author, psychologist Jacinta Jiménez: when she was studying for her final exams at university, she had to take care of her older brother, an experience she shares to help to demonstrate what happens when we push ourselves to the limit, to then end up completely exhausted.
This is burnout, something that can happen to anyone, not only people who live a fast-paced life: you get drawn into a spiral that drains all your energy and, since you have so much to do, you can never find the time to stop and recharge your batteries. This is how you can end up in a very fragile state, both emotionally and physically: it becomes hard to concentrate, difficult to sleep properly, you are always tired, and you struggle to get anything done.
