Private clinic for corona burnout

When the power reserves are depleted

After a year of exceptional circumstances, many people have reached the end of their power reserves. Constant tension, social isolation due to home office, fear of infection as well as existential fears put an enormous strain on society. Especially for women and single parents, the double burden of job, homeschooling and childcare leads to permanent stress.

But people in system-relevant occupational groups, such as health care workers, nurses, educators and teachers, are also under an enormous workload

The pandemic is a stress test for everyone, with many people reaching their limits. Corona fatigue, individual overload and ongoing stress can increase the risk of so-called “corona burnout.”

As a private clinic for psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychosomatics, we are aware of this danger of corona burnout. In the current interview with chief physician Dr. Koutsonasios you can learn more about the psychological pressure in times of the corona pandemic

Symptoms

The symptoms of corona burnout are varied and not always easy to classify. Warning signs of an impending burnout are sleep disturbances and physical complaints such as headaches and gastrointestinal complaints. Furthermore, permanent exhaustion and persistent stress are significant characteristics of a burnout

People suffering from a burnout syndrome are less able to concentrate and perform and find it difficult to relax and switch off. As a result, they become alienated from themselves and other people and are constantly dissatisfied with their own performance despite constant effort. The development of a burnout is a long-lasting process, which can be traced back to overstrained stress management. The longer a burnout remains untreated, the more it affects all areas of the affected person’s life.

Causes

The causes of corona burnout are indispensably related to the consequences of the corona pandemic and can be caused by the following triggers:

  • Home office: According to a study conducted by the Chemnitz University of Technology (TU) and the Techniker Krankenkasse (TK) health insurance company in November 2020, work and private life are becoming blurred for 60 percent of those surveyed. This leads to permanent stress, as the balance to work is eliminated.
  • Homeschooling: permanent strain on work and childcare. To make matters worse, children and teens tend to learn less well when homeschooled.
  • Stress in system-relevant professions
  • Lack of exercise (stress cannot be relieved).
  • Social isolation
  • Excessive demands due to Corona rules
  • Private and family problems, triggered by the Corona crisis
  • Fears (existential fears, fear of infecting oneself and others, fear of post-COVID, etc.)
