Burnout syndrome

Burnout is a psychological term for the experience of long-term exhaustion and diminished interest, usually in the work context. It is also used as an English slang term to mean exhaustion. Burnout is often construed as the result of a period of expending too much effort at work while having too little recovery, but it is sometimes argued that workers with particular personality traits are more prone to experiencing burnout. Further, it appears that researchers disagree about the nature of burnout. While many researchers argue that burnout refers exclusively to a work-related syndrome of exhaustion and depersonalization/cynicism, others feel that burnout is a special case of the more general clinical depression or just a form of extreme fatigue/exhaustion (thus omitting the cynicism component).

Health care workers are often prone to burnout. (Wikipedia)

  5. Though certain categories of workers – teachers, police officers, doctors and nurses, among them – seem to turn up frequently on those occasional listings of high-stress jobs that can lead to fatigue or burnout, many researchers today instead place greater emphasis on the individual, regardless of the line of work. They say what is most important is how each individual responds physically, mentally and emotionally to the unique pressures and working conditions of his or her job.
