Burnout — People in 3 PIA Western Alliance States are the Most Burned Out in the Country

The addiction specialists, The Diamond Rehab did an analysis of Google data related to burn out. It scoured Google data for phrases and questions about work-related burnout.

The term used most in employee searches is “depersonalization.”

The most burned out state — according to Diamond Rehab’s research — is Massachusetts. In the last year, the monthly search for burned out terms for Massachusetts is 690 searches per 100,000 residents.

That translates into 27,800 searches a month for depersonalization alone.

The PIA Western Alliance states of Oregon, Washington and California rank 2, 3 and 5 respectively. Oregon has 16,000 searches per month for the word depersonalization. 

Washington ranks fourth and in the last year had 28,800 searches for that same word. Number-five California’s sheer size gives it a much higher total for the keyword, depersonalization.

It had over 141,300 a month for that one.

The report’s authors said the numbers highlight the need for employers — and society in general — to recognize burnout and address it before it becomes a greater problem.

“This study underscores the importance of addressing burnout as a public health concern. Prioritizing self-care is extremely important. Allocating time in your schedule for activities that bring you relaxation is integral to combatting burnout,” the report notes. “Whether it’s a hobby, exercise, or simply unwinding with a good book, taking time for yourself is crucial. Sometimes, simply sharing your feelings and concerns can provide valuable relief and guidance in overcoming burnout”
