BBC Worklife discussed how to avoid burnout especially for millennials who keep on hustling. Millennials, as they are now, are in the middle of a transition where technology is continuously improving. They have the need to adjust and follow up with the latest trends or they’ll be left behind.

Millennials usually feel burnout for staying at their 8 hours job then pursuing their side hustle after it. This is wrong, according to Bryan Lufkin this could be described as something called ‘decision fatigue’. They usually work with their thoughts floating away from the subject they are doing, but still being able to focus on what they are doing. Experts say that the burnout happens due to millennials’ psychological stress that they aren’t used to. Nothing in our past textbooks teaches us about the existence of this event.

However, there are some things that we could do to help us when burnout, one is to unwind. Most millennials suggest travelling, starting a passion project or just breath it would end. But, in other periods, these means of unwinding could end up stressing us, even more, rather than helping us.

Burnout usually is caused by our fears of job losses, disappointments and the future itself. At the same time, it could be set due to the unrealistic expectations set by ourselves, parents, employers or peers. These expectations would then pressure us to lead a life where we always want to achieve something, and that resting is not valid until you’re finished with your goal.

However, these expectations, at the same time, gave us a standard that we could follow.It teaches us that when making a decision and you’re being indecisive, you could always stick to your basics and list all the pros and cons of each subject matter.

One of the famous documentaries, chosen by their editor itself is ‘The Little-known Concept of Hypersanity’ by Neel Burton. In this reel, Neel Burton discussed the studies of Dr R.D. Laing in his book The Politics of Experience and the Bird of Paradise. Dr R.D. Laing believes that madness is not something humans should be afraid of, as it usually leads to people’s mind reaching a higher state of thinking or what Neel Burton calls as ‘Hypersanity’. 

Hypersanity would then lead to people creating more opportunities rather than failure. It was proved through Carl Jung’s autobiography namely ‘Memories, Dreams and Reflections’. In the book, after his friendship broke off with Sigmund Freud, it led him to a state of madness where he talked with his unconscious mind leading to a ‘lifetime’s work’ of discovery.

With this, Neel Burton compared mental disorder as distressing and hypersanity as liberating. Both of which are outside the standards set by society as normal.
