Burnout. When you reach the point where you’re physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausted due to prolonged and excessive stress at work, you get burned out. You start to malfunction in your daily life, work less and become unproductive.

No one wants to go through such lengths of exhaustion. No one wants to drain themselves. Nobody would willingly burn themselves out. We all want a productive and stress-free work life so we remain our best selves when we are finally out from work.
