Work burnout and job stress

Job stress is defined as the adverse reactions (both emotional and physical) from people who experience excessive pressures or other types of demands placed on them at their place of work. This is often due to a mismatch in what is expected, and the abilities, resources, or needs of the employees. The term “burnout” was coined in the 1970s to describe the consequences of severe stress and high expectations in “helping” professions (for example, doctors and nurses).
However, “burnout” is now used to describe any individual who is exhausted, suffers from alienation from activities, and has reduced performance at work. Burnout is now considered present in nearly all job professions and in other areas of life too.
