Burnout: An interview with nutritionist and burnout expert Charlotte Faure Green

What is burnout?

Charlotte Faure Green

Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged periods of stress. It manifests as low resilience, depression, cynicism, emptiness, feeling trapped, feeling ineffective, detached from the world, apathetic, insomnia and feelings of overwhelm.

As a term, it was originally used to describe the fallout from long-term stress caused by work, but a semantic shift and improved understanding means that we may apply it to any areas of life that cause such feelings of hopelessness.

Burnout goes beyond stress, it is a diminished capacity to deal with life’s stressors and needs urgent addressing for healing – it is essentially end-stage stress, cannot be sustained and, unlike stress, may feel never-ending and insurmountable to the sufferer.
