The Washington Post: From moms to medical doctors, burnout is everywhere these days

“A common ailment is going around, and you probably know someone plagued by it. Caused in part by social media, the 24-hour news cycle and the pressure to check work email outside of office hours, it could hit you, too — especially if you don’t know how to nip it in the bud.

Burnout is everywhere.”
