Value of life

This deficit can be not only a subjectively felt need, but also an attitude towards life, which, ultimately, can lead to burnout.

How do I understand my life? Based on this, I can develop my goals according to which I live. These settings can be from parents, or a person develops them in himself. For example: I want to achieve something. Or: I want to have three children. Become a psychologist, doctor or politician. Thus, a person for himself outlines goals that he wants to follow.

Burnout stages

Freudenberger created a scale consisting of 12 stages of burnout. The first step still looks very harmless:

The routine performance of the repertoire or its inept use, often leads to enslavement, instead of freedom, stiffness and fixation instead of stability, tightness and overload instead of grace. The Pilates program using Stretch-eze® allows you to restore the sometimes lost volume to the familiar Pilates exercises, thereby increasing the healing effect on the body, relieving Continue reading
