Last year, burnout was officially identified as a medical condition by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and according to the health agency, burnout isn’t just related to the feeling of being stressed. In fact, it’s a syndrome that stems from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed, reports USA Today.
