Could you be experiencing job burnout? Ask yourself the following questions:
• Have you become cynical or critical at work?
• Have you lost your ability to care, empathize, and connect with your patients, staff and co-workers?
• Do you blame, shame or demonize the very people you are charged to care for – and feel guilty about it?
• Do you drag yourself to work and have trouble getting started once you arrive?
• Do you lack the energy to be consistently productive?
• Do you lack satisfaction from your achievements?
• Do you doubt that your work really makes any difference or question the quality of what you do?
• Do you feel disillusioned about your job and profession?
• Are you using food, drugs or alcohol to feel better or to simply not feel?
• Have your sleep habits or appetite changed?
• Are you troubled by unexplained headaches, backaches or other physical complaints?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be experiencing some form of job burnout.
