Here we discuss how burnout can be rooted in different facets of someone’s life; it isn’t just overfatigued or tiredness from overworking. Burnout can be a manifestation of a much more dangerous issue; it can also be a factor that changes a person’s lifestyle, affecting relationships and the environment around you.
