Burn-out is a physical and emotional exhaustion, triggered by constant tension and daily stress. The symptoms are manifold, whereby all physical complaints can also be psychosomatic:
In the case of burn-out syndrome, it is important to research the cause and exclude secondary, mostly internal diseases. There are different stages of the disease, which of course must first be recognized in order to intervene therapeutically. As with any other disease, the earlier therapy begins, the better the chances of recovery.
Patients need a complex therapeutic intervention – by the general practitioner and/or specialist and, if necessary, by a psychologist. Behavioral therapy is often a good help for burnout sufferers. Patients must learn to cut back, to concentrate on the essential things, to say “no” sometimes. Taking time out can help people to reorganize their lives. It is also important to recognize that we are valuable, even when we reach our limits. The illness can be seen as an opportunity to reshape one’s own life. And the inner attitude also contributes a lot to individual well-being.
