Overwhelmed, stress, fears and depression to burnout

Everyone is talking about stress and burnout and the current discussion about mindfulness, time management and work-life balance has become indispensable. There are countless books and experts who can provide information about them. As a prominent example, Miriam Meckel wrote a book on this subject.

And, as an antithesis, so to speak, there is even the “boreout”, ie stress from being under-challenged. Today everyone would probably say: Sure, burnout is a serious illness. Burnout is even recognized as the cause of disability. Now a psychiatrist says: "All rubbish" and simply says: "Talk to your grandma".

Recognized occupational disease or life crises?

So is burnout really a disease? Let's take a closer look at this: The Munich Regional Court, at least, held this view that burnout is an illness. In 2006, it declared burnout a case for occupational disability insurance in a landmark judgment.

A manager sued, whose insurance initially did not want to pay and who finally got right after three years of litigation. And anyway. Mental illnesses and mental stress are considered to be one of the main causes of disability. And such problems should just be life crises, which maybe can only be solved with common sense?

Depression, Stress and Anxiety: Isn't Burnout at All?

The head doctor of a large psychiatric hospital in Cologne explains in the Frankfurter Rundschau that burnout does not exist as an illness. He even warned against dramatizing the subject. Rather, people should leave their isolation and seek community. Interviewed about his current book “The Fake of the World” says Dr. Manfred Lütz:

“Burnout doesn't exist as a disease. It does not appear at all in the international classification of mental disorders by the World Health Organization. It is a Z category. These are not real diseases, but general life problems. ”

Solve life crises, break the vicious circle: seek community

And to solve such problems, says Lütz, you don't have to go to a psychiatrist, but talk to good friends and family members. This is probably the best and easiest way to find isolation and find your way back into the community of like-minded people.

Affected people often have to break a vicious cycle because they have neglected maintaining personal contacts due to the stress at work. Those who are lonely and possibly depressed work even harder to escape these negative feelings. There will soon be no end in sight.

There has always been constant availability

Lütz theses were of course also discussed in social networks. So the psychiatrist got broad approval on Facebook. Incidentally, his answer to the question of being overwhelmed by constant accessibility is particularly striking - it shows somewhat exaggerated how much the subject can be dramatized.

“In the Thirty Years' War, people were available to the Swedes around the clock. It was a lot more uncomfortable. ”

10 theses about excessive demands in job and life

But what can you do specifically? The discussions on the subject show that many people find it difficult to take the last step out of isolation and the stress vicious cycle. The psychiatrist also gives tips that I have listed here clearly:

  • Grandma instead of psychiatrist: Lütz advises to speak to your grandmother or someone with life experience if you have problems with your life. Mature personalities, says Lütz, may not have the theoretical knowledge of a therapist, but they do have more life experience.
  • Not every crisis is a psychological problem: Today we go to the therapist for every little problem. However, says Lütz, it can only help with mental disorders. In the event of life crises, however, common sense is important. The psychiatrist advises “differentiate”.
  • Avoid transportation to incompetence: According to the Peter principle, every employee tends to rise up to his level of inability. And then he sits incompetently in a post where he is completely unhappy. Nonsense, says Lütz.
  • Quitting instead of burnout clinic: If overwhelmed by the boss, it is not a burnout clinic that helps, just a dismissal, says the clinic boss.
  • Not every guru believe:  Self-proclaimed gurus often do not know more than anyone with some life experience. Nevertheless, many can be blinded by the pseudo-knowledge.
  • Not everything can be explained scientifically: Every psychological stimulus can also be explained at the molecular level. But reducing the abundance of human emotions to a few neurotransmitters is naive and unscientific, the scientist says.
  • Just go for a walk in the forest: If you want to prevent burnout, you should simply switch off and go for a walk in the forest. Or play sports to reduce the stress hormones.
  • Fall out of the roll more often: In between, you should get out of all the roles that you play in your working life - and be yourself. Even if one or the other might look at you diagonally. But your own peace of mind is worth it.
  • Don't forget real life: There is a risk that the roles become a part of life and that you forget about yourself and your own needs. The real Sense of life, the author warns, is truth and love.
  • Maintain relationships: Accordingly, Lütz recommends spending more time with his fellow human beings and cultivating relationships. Because many people would forget that because they emulated role models all day long.
