Abstract or Introduction
In the present era of advancement, increasing attention has been paid to the phenomenon of burnout.
Burnout is a severe form of stress, i.e. it is the negative side of stress that leads to burnout. Stress is experienced as a restriction of our existence. Stress is also referred to as pressure, tense situations, uneasiness, a negative force which affects an individual, or the body of an individual, or the intellectual capacity of an individual.
There is, however, a difference between stress and burnout: stress has both positive and negative outcomes, whereas burnout has only negative outcomes. Stress can be useful or harmful depending on how an individual reacts in stressful situations.
Time and again, different concepts of burnout have come into existence. Is burnout thus a trendy term which is used to highlight boredom, depression, extreme stress?
