Be alert for signs of burnout
As the end of the year approaches, deadlines get closer and the pressure starts to mount. It's easy to find ourselves working long coffee-fuelled hours and feeling near the end of our tether.
Excessive stress can lead to a raft of physical and psychological issues - it's implicated in heart disease, stroke, anxiety and depression. And it can lead to career burnout - physical, mental and emotional exhaustion that makes it impossible to engage with work in any meaningful way.
