Weak, burned-out, and empty: Especially with an impending burn-out, a career break can be a good step to prevent the complete state of exhaustion. Not only a tight workload, continuous overstraining, a stressful atmosphere at the office or bad working conditions are factors that can be exhausting in the long run. Constant dissatisfaction about one’s own working situation and too few demands can just as well lead to weariness and fatigue. Such a bore-out has similar symptoms as a burn-out: fatigue, frustration, or even depression. Your physical and mental health can benefit a lot from a break in which you have the opportunity to shut down, relax, and recover from your stressful work routine. Break free from your everyday life and gather new strength to return to your daily life or even improve and transform it.
