Love Your Job but Still Burned Out?
Having a job is a great privilege to have; to wake up and actually love what you're doing is even better.

A recent survey shows that U.S. office workers are happy at the job they currently have, but are also feeling burned out.

How can this be?

There are many reasons you could be feeling burned out. But, in this specific Staples survey, it was from putting in too many long days.

When you're feeling like you can't escape your job, you find yourself in a dilemma. Your stress levels increase, which causes your health to suffer in the long run.

How can you prevent burnout from happening at a job that you enjoy?

Scott J. Behson, PhD, shares why it could be possible to be both happy and burned out, and how to ease the stress you may feel at work.
