ENFIELD, U.K. - April 5, 2015 - PRLog -- About the Book:

In this useful book, there are 36 images with accompanying text which give unique insight into how burnout arises, the psychological and physical effects of burnout and how to recognise the signs, and practical advice about how they can be addressed in order to build a new future.

Two excerpts from the book:

“I was crumbling.

The situation had got progressively worse since the start of the academic year. No longer stoical I'd dissolve into tears on the slightest pretext. Staff would come across me weeping in the stock cupboard, by the photocopier or in a deserted class room.

Needless to say, I'd lost all sense of humour. I'd become blind to the funny side. I couldn't sleep. My eating was erratic, concentration was a continual struggle.

Although permanently exhausted, I was hyperactive. Operating on fast forward I grew less and less efficient. Worse still, my passion for my job turned to indifference. I'd often been accused of caring too much. Now I didn't care at all.

Everything seemed pointless.

I'd look in the mirror and see a gaunt face with sunken panda eyes and chalky skin staring back at me. I didn't recognise this person.

January 26th 2011, I finally realised there was something fundamentally wrong.

I had to save what remained of myself before it was too late.


“I had been brought up to believe that the most important thing in one's life was work.  I could not uphold that principle any longer.

My wholehearted commitment to a job had proved detrimental to both my health and my well-being. In the darkest days of my illness, when I realised my desire to teach had been extinguished forever, I had questioned the very point of my existence. Then I stepped back from the brink and began to examine what I really valued in life. Work was not the be all and end all.  I knew I was lucky. I had been given a second chance to live a different kind of life. I didn't intend to waste the opportunity.”
