1. The Trap of Cynicism

When we are first approaching what can be called "burnout", we can begin to feel very cynical towards the world around us. We might perceive everything from the perspective of the glass being half empty. Or, we could always view the outcome of even the most positive of situations as negative. This can occur at the office as well as in our personal lives. You might no longer feel motivated in regards to the company that you work for or these feelings could manifest themselves in a relationship. Either way, cynicism is a clear sign that you need a respite from the rigours of your life. This is only one of the many signs that a holiday is in order. Let's take a look at some of the other indicators that may be present.

2. Feeing Constantly "Under the Weather"

The body has ways of reminding us that we may be burning the proverbial candle at both ends. One common symptom is if you always feel that you are on the verge of getting sick. If you are not receiving enough rest (both mental and physical), your immune system can become compromised over time. Not addressing this obvious concern could lead you to becoming physically sick in the not-so-distant future. Such a situation is particularly concerning if you normally feel ill when thinking about work while you seem fine on Saturday and Sunday. This is one of the first warning signs that a holiday may be in order.

3. Physical Illness

Of course, this is the next progression from the last section we covered. Stress and exhaustion have the tendency to manifest themselves as real illnesses over time. However, they are not always acute sicknesses such as glandular fever or the flu. Often, they can remain undiagnosed and doctors will be unable to find a root cause for the condition. Such nondescript cases could very well signal that your immune system has become compromised due to stress. Booking a holiday is an excellent way to get back the energy that you have been lacking.
