For high achievers aspiring to build a superlative life, there has never been a better time to be alive. Massive advancements in technology in the first two decades of the New Millennium laid the groundwork for unlimited potential in the 2020s. Creative innovators who want to design and live a dream life on their own terms have access to unlimited resources to achieve their goals.
With so much up for grabs, it is easy to reach for the stars. The problem is that so many options can put you into overdrive, depleting your resources of time and energy and leaving you feeling exhausted, sick and out of sorts. No matter how much you love what you’re doing, when you can no longer juggle your many commitments and maintain your physical, mental and emotional health, you are a candidate for burnout syndrome.
Who Gets Burnout Syndrome?
With all its benefits, technology has its downsides when it comes to overworking. Bosses and colleagues now have access to you 24/7, whether you are “at work” or not, making it difficult to find some down time. Increased opportunities for global collaboration have removed barriers imposed by time zones, making flexible schedules the norm. Mobile technology has removed all excuses for being inaccessible to employers, coworkers, friends and family members, regardless of time or location.
Round the clock demands on your time and energy make it difficult to carve out some time for yourself to relax and recover. While much of the research on burnout syndrome focuses on workers in a corporate environment, anyone with a full and busy life can fall victim to burnout.
Victims of burnout may include:
- Entrepreneurs striving to build a branded empire
- College and graduate students with heavy course loads
- Healthcare providers working long and erratic shifts
- Teachers dealing with unrealistic work demands
- Emergency services providers
- Parents struggling to work and raise a family
- Athletes with demanding training schedules
- Caregivers with ailing family members
- Anyone trying to satisfy multiple demands over an extended period of time, without adequate time for replenishment
Burnout Syndrome Symptoms
The worst thing about burnout is that you don’t see it coming until it’s too late. Even when all the red flags are waving, denial often overrides the telltale signs. High achievers often take on more than they can manage, until the load becomes too heavy to carry and burnout sets in, often culminating in illness that brings everything to a screeching halt.
Symptoms of burnout include:
- Feeling exhausted all the time
- Difficulty sleeping
- Frequent headaches or muscle aches
- Over or under eating
- Increased use of alcohol, pain relievers, sleep aids and antidepressants
- Apathy and loss of motivation
- Procrastination and avoidance of responsibilities
- Cynicism and negative attitude
- Social isolation
- Lashing out at family, friends and coworkers
- Reduced or lost sense of purpose
- Frequent or chronic infections
Chronic stress from work and responsibilities can contribute to burnout, but the drivers of burnout are often the self-imposed demands that high achievers place on themselves in their quest to reach new heights.
Anti-Stress IV Therapy for Burnout Recovery
Burnout often leads to upper respiratory infections, a sign at the end of the road that says your immune system is overloaded and in need of recharging. When you push yourself to your limit day after day without adequate recovery time, your brain sends chemical messages to your immune system, placing it on high alert. Over time, the nutrients that promote immune support become depleted, leaving you vulnerable to invading pathogens.
The world’s most successful people prioritize self-care that includes exercise, sleep and nutrition, to perform at their peak and as a defense against burnout. For many high achievers, IV Vitamin therapy is an integral part of their self-care regimen.
An IV Anti-Stress Cocktail provides high doses of vital nutrients that are essential for stress management and immune support:
- Riboflavin (B2)
- Panthothenic Acid (B5)
- Pyroxidine (B6)
- Cobalamin (B12)
- Magnesium (Mg)
- Glycerophosphocholine (GPC)
- Vitamin C (Ascorbate)
Anti-stress IV therapy promotes restful sleep, reduces anxiety, elevates your mood, boosts your immune system and helps you focus.
