You appear to be far removed from a burnout. Your responses indicate that you do a good job managing the inevitable stresses of everyday life. You easily handle everyday challenges and stressors. You succeed in creating important buffer zones for your personal life, and you strike a good work-life balance.

The demands of your everyday life seem to burden you more than is good for you. The risk of burnout increases the closer you come to the 90-point mark. Try to make sure that in your everyday life you create more professional and personal balance by offsetting periods of tension with periods of relaxation.

Over 90 points

It is high time for you to speak to a health-care professional about whether you are facing burnout. You should take particular notice of physical symptoms, which serve as alarm signals letting you know you are at acute risk of being overwhelmed and experience burnout. Even if it may seem completely impossible at the moment, please look into the possibility of taking some time off. In addition, you should try to identify the greatest stressors in your everyday life. Think about how you handle these things, and do not be afraid to accept help from people you trust or perhaps seek professional assistance. If you accept the support of other people instead of trying to solve all of your problems by yourself, you will feel a tangible sense of relief.
