Burnout symptoms? What are burnout symptoms?

Burnout is generally characterized by an overwhelming feeling of fatigue and exhaustion. You feel like you have pushed your mind and body too much for too long, so that you are now fatigued all the time. You also worry a lot. Mostly about things like: ‘What could I have done better?’ or ‘What should I still do?’. Because you worry so much, you also have issues sleeping. You find it difficult to fall asleep or wake up very often during the night. This, of course, is not god for your fatigue, either.
Except for this overwhelming feeling, you will also notice that you are less nice toward other people when they ask you something. You snap more often and you also experience more crying fits. Because your brain is constantly exhausted, you also forget more things and you will find it difficult to pay attention to your work or other tasks for extended periods of time.
