Problem of chronic Stress

Unmodulated stress leads you to burnout.

Your body has not yet adapted to your high-paced and constant stress lifestyle. Stress itself is an essential function that allows us to survive and thrive. For over 99% of our history as humans, we lived in sprints (for example, we went on a short hunt and then had a long relaxation phase). But modern-life demands have changed that. Today, we live in constant stress, and many have lost the ability to recover.

It is challenging for you to distinguish between beneficial and detrimental stress.

Learn more

Short-term stress is healthy even on a daily occurrence. You need recovery periods between the stress sprints.
Because stress is an everyday occurrence, it is easy for you to get used to it and push through it. Eventually, this stress becomes chronic, and you are putting yourself at high risk for burnout.

You waste energy on things you can’t affect.

Spinning out of control on things that you can’t or won’t take steps to change (e.g., social media, politics) drains your valuable energy.

Not getting proper recovery makes you feel exhausted.

Learn more

If you don't get the proper quantity and quality recovery, you feel exhausted. Many of us recover with activities that increase dopamine, such as watching exciting TV shows, which increase stress.

You want to control stress and not let burnout damage you.

Learn more

In our fast-paced world, we tend to push ourselves to compensate for our diminishing performance. This behavior destabilizes our nervous system often unnoticed, and we keep going. When symptoms arise, the damage has already occurred.

You don’t have a framework that helps you to deal with daily stressors.

In modern life, we all need a guide or a system to help us to get rid of bad thoughts, habits, emotions, and decisions before they take control of us. That is why top athletes often have a mental health coach.

How chronic stress and burnout can affect you.

Emotions take control of you.

Burnout takes a heavy toll on you. With drained batteries, you won’t have the resources to mitigate even the simplest day-to-day challenges. As a result, you become overly sensitive, anxious, and hysterical. This behavior can have a detrimental influence on your relations.

A permanent change in your personality:

- Cynicism (depersonalization) and anger/rage are frequent consequences.1

- Depression and Anxiety are commonly linked to burnout.2, 3

- Burnt-out people have larger amygdalas (brain region responsible for emotional responses) while also reducing their connections to the rest of the brain, lessening your ability to regulate your emotions.4
