Burnout - MOVE THE BRAIN

BURNOUT PREVENTION

Burnout syndrome (BOS) is described as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.

It is characterized by three dimensions;

  1. Feelings of energy
  2. Depletion or exhaustion; increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativismor cynicism related to one s job;
  3. and reduced professional efficacy.

Burnout can increase the likelihood of depression, anxiety and substance abuse.

In many cases, high functioning individuals become alienated, isolated and stress can and often does manifest in physical depletion and mental weariness.

These symptoms are the result of several factors: first the patterns of activity in the brain.
This means our world and its effects on our physiology become patterned and automatic – we can teach our brain to function at a very high stress level which changes our nervous system in a negative way, including increases/decreases in cortisol (stress hormone), increased experiences with insomnia, anxiety, and depressive symptoms.

For these individuals there is not often an outlet to talk about these feelings and patterns due to potential effects on position and relations with other executives.

Our concept of self becomes interlaced with the chronic stress of the workplace and balancing other areas of life. We begin to isolate, overly criticize ourselves and importantly place greater demands on ourselves, which creates a self-stress loop that affects every aspect of life.

The brain can unlearn these patterns. The brain can be taught to reset the self and reprogram the autonomic reactions to the environment.

“The brain can learn to practice positive state space in all circumstances which will improve performance, social interactions and interpersonal skills, and importantly emotional intelligence. We all need a refresh or reboost at some point in our career and social development”

Burn-out Prevention Training Methods

When you approach a burnout, your body becomes increasingly exhausted. There is not enough rest and relaxation, so that your body cannot recharge. It is crucial that you don’t succumb to the stress, but train your brain to deal with it. We guide you through this process in an effective, professional and scientifically proven way.

Neuro-feedback allows us to measure where the overload in your brain takes place. In neuro-training, we try to reconfigure your brain to prevent overloading in the future, and thereby prevent a burnout. Your brain is in fact plastic, or able to change.

Additionally, cognitive behavioral training is incorporated to assist you with finding new ways to behave through changing your thoughts. You will learn skills that help you change your thought patterns so you can better determine an appropriate course of action. We guide you through this.

We believe in an intensive burn-out prevention training, which consists of various components. The combination between these methods gives a better result than when they are applied individually.

We use the following training methods in the program:

  • Nutrition– A healthy lifestyle is essential in the recovery process. We give you tailor-made advice.
  • Movement– Body and mind training,
  • Structure– Cognitive behavioral training,
  • Relaxation– Massage, during recovery training we give you the extra relaxation that your body needs.
  • Resistance– Neuro-training, you must weaken the old connections in your brain to stimulate new, better connections. This ensures that you can deal with stress better in the future.
  • Rest– Body and movement training.
