This year, the World Health Organization defined workplace burn-out as, quote, “chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.”  And a recent survey found 54% of people think it’s a serious problem at their job.

Here are five signs YOU might be burnt out at work and need a vacation.  Or maybe even a new job . . .


1.  A sudden lack of motivation.  Especially with parts of your job you used to enjoy.


2.  You’re easily annoyed.  Especially if it happens a lot, then you look back and realize you overreacted.


3.  Your personality has changed.  Like you used to be easygoing, but you’ve been complaining a lot lately.  Or it could be subtle.  Like you used to be talkative, and now you keep to yourself.


4.  A sense of disengagement toward your job, or your co-workers.  Maybe you don’t have a team mentality as much as you used to.


5.  Physical symptoms.  Things like headaches, tired eyes, or a tight neck could be a sign you’re overworked or holding a lot of stress.
