How can burnout lead to sleep disorders?

What is burnout ?
Burnout is a state of mental, physical, and emotional exhaustion caused by prolonged or excessive stress. It can lead to sleep disorders, which can further exacerbate the effects of burnout.
Burnout and sleep disorders
Burnout can cause a number of sleep disorders, including insomnia, hypersomnia, and sleep apnea. Insomnia is a condition characterized by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Hypersomnia is a condition characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness. Sleep apnea is a condition characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep.
Burnout can have a significant impact on your health. If you are experiencing burnout, it is important to seek help from a healthcare professional.
Sleep is a basic need of workers, and a lack of it can be detrimental to health and performance.
Why a lack of sleep is detrimental in burnout ?
Sleep is a basic need of workers, and a lack of it can be detrimental to health and performance. According to the National Sleep Foundation, a person who is burned out is likely to sleep less than six hours per night. Exhaustion and poor quality sleep can have a negative impact on an employee’s performance, emotional well-being, and relationships. Hence, organisations should try to prevent sleep disorders in their employees.
Many factors can cause fatigue in the brain, including medication, stress, illnesses, and emotional challenges. One study found that people who wrote a detailed to-do list were more likely to fall asleep faster. It also found that people who had a positive mindset about their work were less likely to suffer from insomnia.
Negative effect of burnout on the brain
According to a recent review by Greek psychological scientists, burnout has a negative effect on cognitive functions, including working memory and creativity. Researchers attributed these problems to the stress of 60 to 70 hours of work per week over several years. To further evaluate the effects of burnout, they recruited a socioeconomically matched control group composed of 70 healthy volunteers. Participants completed two tests: one to assess the level of negative emotions, and another to assess brain connectivity.
Misconceptions about burnout
The most common misconception about burnout is that it occurs when someone works too hard or works too long. However, other factors can be just as detrimental. According to a World Health Organization report, high job demands, low control, and effort-reward imbalance are factors that contribute to burnout.
If you experience burnout or any of its symptom, don’t keep it for yourself. Talk to someone about what you are going through.

Ellen is a certified USUI Reiki Master Level III, a singer-songwriter and Sound Therapist. She’s an intuitive Tarot Reader.
In her work, she creates a safe space where she uses Reiki, Sound healing Tarot and teachings, to heal body, mind and spirit and promote a sound sleep.

The Reiki and sound healing sessions bring deep relaxation by decreasing your overactive mind, which promotes better sleep and self-healing but also calm, serenity, joy and happiness.

They are more particularly geared toward victims of anxiety, stress, “Monkey mind syndrome”, depression, insomnia or other sleep disorders and also burnout fatigue (from work or social media, such as TikTok burnout, Instagram burnout or YouTube burnout).

It is also suited for people who feel lost, with low self-esteem or with no purpose, who need personal or spiritual guidance.
