The man of today is often a career maker who has spent most of his day at work, and thanks to technological development, work can become an integral part of everyday life, even when we leave the office – especially when we talk about intellectual work. Often people often hear the phrase "I do not have time to work", and this is a portrait of a modern man – often refurbished, without looking at the importance of good rest and the consequences of such a thoughtless running in the long run. term may be the result. It is not surprising that this can end with both physical and psycho-emotional health problems. Moreover, people who are worried about the already longer state of worry usually start to worry about the lack of a doctor's visit and the loss of well-being lost in the process can not be regained by their own strength.
In Latvia, one in fifteen suffers from burnout syndrome
The results of the survey "My Pharmacy & Apotheka Health Index" show that almost 40% of the Latvian population has health problems at work, including one in three (31%) with physical health problems that are caused or worsened by working conditions, but every fifteen people have experienced burnout syndrome. In my opinion, these data give the correct image in Latvia fairly accurately, and this is alarming. The most frequently reported burnout syndrome in recent times is the most common psycho-emotional disorder that occurs as a result of tasks. Physical health problems are usually individually assessed cases that are influenced by both harmful factors in the working environment, such as dust, noise and ergonomics, and workers' knowledge about safety at work. In the case of a burnout syndrome, the reason is often the ineffective organizational processes in the company, as well as excessive workload and processing. That is why it is essential that everyone is aware of their ability to work and emphasize sustainability, because management will not be able to climb into the skin of a colleague and determine the moment when there is probably a lot of duty.
The most common burnout syndrome is experienced by intellectuals – for example creative industries, educators, medical professionals – this is associated with a lot of emotional stress. It is also based on the health index, which shows that those with a higher level of education suffer the most from the burn-out (13%). This is due to the daily processing of a large amount of information, emotionally attractive work, more chance of more responsibilities and more responsibilities. Young professionals often want to prove themselves in the chosen profession, challenge themselves and work more hours than expected. At present, the lack of staff in different sectors is also a major problem, and this often results in overcrowded workers.
Burnout syndrome history – rapid irritability for workings
The burning syndrome as a serious health problem in Latvia has become more acute in recent years. Unfortunately, doctors diagnose fewer cases of illness than in reality. The main reason for this is that people themselves often do not recognize the symptoms of a burnout syndrome and – rarely seek help. In most cases, the patient expects to be able to cope without interfering with other people, and to feel ashamed of having emotional health problems. Also, "My Pharmacy & Apotheka Health Index" shows that for the second year in a row, 12% of Latvians admit that they have the need for a psychologist or psychotherapist to visit, but they have not approached the doctor. 5% of the respondents also admitted that they suffered from anxiety attacks and 4% of vegetative dystonia. I think that the general public can not assume that it is normal to experience psycho-emotional health problems and that it is necessary to go to the doctor and not be disgraced. As a result, the cases of burnout syndrome, which are diagnosed, are most likely very well tolerated.
The burning syndrome can sometimes be confused with depression, but it is important to mention that burnout syndrome can be associated with depression. The main difference between these two diseases, however, is that in case of a burnout syndrome it is clear to the patient that this emotional discomfort is caused directly by the work. Work causes an outburst of negative emotions, even when it comes to imagining. It is difficult to find a motivation to work, there is a persistent feeling of fatigue, a person trying to isolate from others, and all of this has a direct impact on work. Later, by ignoring these signs and deepening burnout syndrome, psycho-emotional disorders begin to affect other parts of life.
When we talk about the antecedents of the disease, the first is certainly an intensified emotional response to different work-related nuances, irritability. Especially if the person was not previously characterized by an emotional perception of similar situations at work. Such changes of the edge can often be seen by colleagues or family members, so it is good to be careful. The second is that if you have trouble sleeping because of work, you have trouble sleeping because things always come to mind. If you have to wake up at night for these reasons, you should definitely consider whether you should turn to help. The third is the deterioration of memory. Often this is due to the fact that there is so much work that you can not remember everything.
An untreated burnout syndrome can result in harmful behaviors and addictions
Bleeding syndrome treatment methods are mostly psychotherapeutic. If this is the problem, the first thing you need to do is to understand what exactly is the cause of bad emotional well-being and then it needs to be addressed. It is important to solve the causes of psycho-emotional overload, to improve the organization of work, to improve communication between colleagues and to evaluate the necessary human resources. In cases of inappropriate cases, the patient must also decide on a change of job because he or she can not continue to work under the same conditions that caused these health problems. The cure for burning a syndrome also no longer helps to leave as soon as a person returns to an uncomfortable environment, symptoms and health problems will return. For these reasons, it is important to deal with the situation in good time, to turn to management when necessary – not to wait for the moment when overload and emotional fatigue are no longer necessary. If you can not cure a burn-out syndrome and try to deal with our own strength, a variety of harmful behaviors, such as increased alcohol use, smoking or even drug use, are often used to relieve stress & # 39; . This can of course result in even worse consequences. That is why I think it is very important to talk about such diseases, the symptoms and causes of the school, the universities promise – so that everyone is informed and can recognize and seek help in time.
Physical and mental well-being – always in interaction
A person is a united organism, therefore physical well-being can affect mental and vice versa. That is why daily life must be followed by how well you feel physically and also by different working conditions. Work-related physical health problems can be divided into two groups: an occupational accident, which is usually an occupational accident at work, and occupational or work-related health problems that have developed for a long time under the influence of the work environment. These can also be various disruptions that have influenced the development of diseases previously detected by the work environment. According to the health index, work-related physical health problems are most common among people with basic education (39%). I think it is related to the details of the work here – more physical work.
When we talk about the most common physical limitations that can be promoted by working conditions – it is primarily back pain – usually in the lower back and neck. It can be of the wrong working posture as well as of the physical effort, of insanity and inadequate working conditions. In the case of physical work, the hands, wrists, elbows, shoulder joints often suffer. If, on the other hand, we call visual disturbances, it is often said that the common cause is a weak, insufficient or too bright illumination that causes eye fatigue, blurred vision and headaches. Also, insufficient humidity in the room can contribute to the loss of eyes and inflammation of the inside of the eyes. Dust or other elements that may come into contact with the eyes can cause eye injury, inflammation and therefore deterioration of vision. In the meantime, working with computers, which is often the first one that is the cause of visual problems, has much less influence. This is also due to the quality of the monitors: modern models are designed to prevent eye damage.
It should be remembered that lifestyle without an ergonomic working environment is also important – whether we are sufficiently active in our daily lives, just as nutrition is equally important. The health index also shows that the physical health problems promoted by the work environment are the ones who do not behave well (38%).
