3 Warning Signs of Burnout for Clinicians May 22, 2019

3 Warning Signs of Burnout for Clinicians, Manhattan, New York

There’s a reason why airline safety videos instruct passengers to adjust their own oxygen masks before adjusting anyone else’s. At the end of the day, you can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself. This is especially true for health care providers, who are inclined to suffer from burnout if they work too hard for too long in their vital role. Here are just a few warning signs that you’re on the verge of clinician burnout and in dire need of a Caribbean retreat designed specifically for you.

3 Signs of Impending Clinician Burnout 

1. Overwhelming Fatigue

Have you ever been so tired that you can’t sleep? Utter exhaustion—which is common among health care providers—is one of the earliest warning signs of burnout. If you can’t ever seem to catch up on sleep and you feel tired even after waking up in the mornings, booking a Caribbean retreat that focuses on wellness for clinicians may be long overdue. 

2. Misplaced Priorities 

caribbean retreatIf you’re spending increasingly more time at work and less time with loved ones, it will eventually affect your mental health. The same is true if work is keeping you from hobbies and favorite pastimes. Everyone needs at least a little time to unwind after a long shift. If you can’t seem to find even that—or are so focused on work that you don’t want to—it’s time to reevaluate your priorities and make a few minor adjustments. 

3. Emotional Detachment

Health care providers must be somewhat desensitized so they can provide the best service possible to their patients. However, they should still practice with warmth and compassion. The moment you start feeling cynical about the work is the moment you need to step back and take some time off.
