Avoiding Emotional Exhaustion: Filling Our Emotional Tank

Avoiding Emotional Exhaustion: Filling Our Emotional Tank - World of Psychology


Signs of emotional exhaustion include, but are not limited to:
  • low tolerance to stress or stressful situations;
  • inattentiveness;
  • lack of motivation; and
  • physical fatigue.
Let’s face it, when we’re emotionally drained we have little tolerance for anything. So what can be done about it?

It’s often hard to be attentive because we are too tired to care. We lack motivation because we are too tired to do anything. Last, but not least we become physically tired because we have worn ourselves out mentally.
It is important to notice these signs of emotional exhaustion to avoid further interpersonal, work, school, or other problems. It is also important to notice these signs to prevent more physical or emotional dangers.
