Burnout & Self Care


Burnout has become a popular word within the helping profession. The psychology field has yet to identify it as a condition in the DSM, but the World Health Organization does admit that burnout is an important occupational phenomenon. They define it as “chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.” Although this can sound pretty simple to deal with, it requires an awareness of the source of stress, as well as strategies to combat the negative impact of burnout. Ministry leaders often dive deep into the needs of others, at the expense of limiting the care they need for themselves. Neglecting to care for ourselves, as God intended, causes us to think of ourselves as being self-sufficient, seeking to fulfill our needs in our own abilities. Caring for ourselves isn’t just a behaviour or a strategy we should incorporate into our routine, it’s a heart issue that causes us to deny our attempt at thinking we can do things on our own and acknowledging our need for God’s strength.
