I think the most striking thing about burnout is that, in my experience, it actually takes time to recover from it. Like a wound that requires healing.

It wasn't a situation where you simply remove a stressor and everything automatically gets better. A problem was created in my brain and it took a long time before I was functioning properly again.

Good point. And this is the thing I noticed most in the article. Have read a few other articles here in the past. But here the author stressed this point.
