1. Fatigue and illness

Have you gone through your life feeling relatively healthy and then suddenly noticed that ever since you started a new job, you’ve been feeling exhausted and sick? If you wake up in the morning with the urge to call in sick (whether it is legitimate or just because you can’t handle the thought of going to work), it’s a sure sign that you are working in a toxic environment that is having a serious effect on your mental and physical health. Make sure to take designated breaks. Get enough sleep. Don’t pick up hours if you are not capable of handling the extra time at the office. In the long run, not suffering from burnout will benefit you and your organization since it means you aren’t staying at home.
