In spirituality, burnout is a state of exhaustion and loss of interest in spiritual activities. It can happen when people take on too much spiritual work without allowing themselves to rest, process and grow. Some signs of spiritual burnout are feeling disconnected from oneself, others and the divine, feeling overwhelmed by suffering or questions about the meaning of life, and losing the joy and wonder of spirituality. Spiritual burnout can be healed by taking time to relax, reconnect and recharge one’s spirit. This may involve meditation, prayer, service, nature, or other practices that nourish one’s soul.
