Burnout is a form of exhaustion caused from being overwhelmed and emotionally drained.2 Experiencing workplace stress for prolonged periods can lead to burnout which can make it difficult to function and cope with daily life, especially if left unaddressed.1
Burnout symptoms may be physical and mental, and include:
The first step to managing burnout is realising that you are suffering from it. Seek medical support and make lifestyle changes to achieve a better balance.2
The foods you eat every day can assist in combating burnout.2 Meal planning as well as including a nutritional supplement in your diet can help you to save time and energy in the long run, especially when you need it most.2
Omega-3 fatty acids are important for the brain to function properly. Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids include flaxseeds, chia seeds, and fatty fish like salmon and sardines. These foods can support mood and cognition.2 Build a balanced plate with protein, carbohydrates, vegetables, and healthy fats to help sustain long-lasting energy.2
Leafy green vegetables like spinach and kale are good sources of essential B vitamins, needed by the body for their normal mental support benefits.2
