Stress, Burnout & Emotional Exhaustion
Burnout is now being taken seriously by the medical community and in May 2019 the World Health Organisation classified excessive stress and burnout as an “occupational phenomenon”.
The WHO goes on to say:
Burn-out is a syndrome conceptualised as resulting from chronic stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterised by three dimensions:
- feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion
- increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job
- reduced professional efficacy.
In other words, you’re not alone. This is happening to many people and it is not confined to the workplace.
Burnout is a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. If you are feeling continuously overwhelmed and unable to meet constant demands you are probably on the brink of burnout.
Successful and motivated people are not immune to developing dysfunctional patterns of behaviour to cope with the demands of their roles. Substance abuse and inability to modulate mood are commons signs of stress and imminent burnout.
Over time professional capacities are impacted as are reputations and relationships with colleagues and family members.

I travelled from Los Angeles to Istana Jiwa on the recommendation of a friend and in my mind, it was a leap into the unknown. I was completely unprepared for how cosmopolitan, competent, professional and caring the staff were. From the moment I was met at the airport to the moment I left I felt cared for and understood. This was an utterly life-changing experience, I never thought I would say I loved going to rehabilitation but I actually did.Maggie, LA
For my sins I have been to a few treatment centres around the world, nothing comes close to Istana Jiwa. I went deeper and achieved more in therapy than I have ever gone before, I made peace with meditation and yoga - both things I have resisted in the past and both I now practise in daily life. I feel transformed, thank you.Rob, London
I went to Istana Jiwa to reset my mind and change the way I was living. Stress had got the better of me, I was partying too hard and I was close to blowing up my career and losing my family. Amazingly I found some like minded souls in the Istana Jiwa team, people who had lived my life in the corporate arena, who understood me and helped me recalibrate my life. I now feel better than ever before, and I even gave up smoking there!Simon, HK
I started with Istana Jiwa in pretty ordinary shape; marriage had collapsed and I was self medicating with anything I could find to suppress the deep sense of despair and depression. The program transformed me – physically and emotionally. I spent 60 days in the program working on finding myself and I left feeling genuine hope and a real fortitude to tackle life again.L, Melbourne
