Hypnosis for Boreout
Get out of Boredom

Boreout, what kind of illness is that? Isn't it nice to have less stress at work for a change? So many people suffer from burnout because they suffer from too much, excessive and constant stress. Surely they'd be happy if you could finally get some rest. But boreout is much more than a few quiet days at the office. It is a permanent underchallenge that attacks self-confidence and hurts the soul in this way. Those who suffer from boreout paradoxically have the same symptoms as a burnout patient. Depression can be the result, the feeling of burning out and not being needed saps personal self-efficacy.

Boreout symptoms

Boreout Syndrome - being under-challenged at work and in personal life

Boreout and burnout syndromes have similar symptoms, because boredom at work is a complaint of many employees. Symptoms such as dejection, listlessness, cardiovascular disease, general lack of motivation and depression are rarely attributed to chronic boredom. The word burnout has meanwhile become established in everyday language for being overtaxed and overworked on the job. But what about underchallenge? Can underchallenge and boredom at work, school, university or in private life make people ill? What are typical symptoms of boreout sufferers and how is boreout syndrome diagnosed? Sick due to underachievement and chronic boredom at work - here you will learn everything you need to know on the subject.

Boreout facts

Burned out by underachievement - chronic boredom makes you sick

More than 10 percent of all employees in Germany suffer from boreout syndrome at least once in their working lives. This affects managers as well as workers, civil servants or clerks. All of these people suffer from massive underload because work has been combined or rationalized. Underchallenge has a negative effect on self-confidence and leads to the fact that those affected no longer have any confidence in themselves. Their self-confidence sinks more and more. At the same time, they do everything they can to conceal their situation. After all, we live in a meritocracy. Anyone who is considered "lazy" can expect to be ostracized and ridiculed, both at work and at home. In addition, an employee who has little or even no work to do has every right to fear for his or her job. A game of hide-and-seek begins, in which the employee feigns busyness where there is none.

Job boredom in Germany

The figures are high: 17 percent of the women surveyed say about the role of work in their own lives that the job is often boring, compared with 13 percent of the men surveyed. If you consider the effects of boreout and its possible secondary conditions, which can result from persistent underchallenge, it becomes clear how important it is to break out of the cycle of boredom and underchallenge.

Boreout causes

Boreout triggers - this is how boreout arises

The term boreout describes at the same time the cause: boredom and this can, contrary to what some believe, refer to different areas of life, such as in professional life, in private life, leisure, school, study or training and in an unemployment.

When boreout is caused by being under-challenged at work

One cause for chronic underchallenge in professional life can be that affected persons are underestimated at the workplace. Tasks are subtracted or affected persons are cut off in their career. Often, modest personnel decisions are behind this, causing employees to burn out. The competencies are not or only insufficiently perceived. Again and again, a specific type of mobbing appears behind this, to which those affected are exposed seemingly arbitrarily. Behind it in addition, a bad order situation can stand. In addition to employees, self-employed people are particularly affected by this due to fluctuating economic activity or poor positioning on the market.

When boreout is caused by being under-challenged in your personal life

And anyone who now thinks that boreout is only to be found in the workplace is mistaken: those affected do not know what to do with their time. The TV is on constantly and digital devices increase communication. At the same time, the ideas of actively taking life into one's own hands and shaping it diminish. Chronic boredom can be the result. Social contacts become fewer, sufferers have no hobbies and forget what gives them pleasure. They increasingly isolate themselves and boreout is found in private life and leisure time. A cycle of listlessness develops, lack of motivation towards new things, passion and joy decrease, as does libido, and at the same time bad moods, dejection and listlessness increase. Depression can be the result.

Boreout consequences

What consequences can being under-challenged and boreout syndrome have?

However, the worst consequences of the disease do not affect the body, but the soul. The permanent underchallenge destroys self-confidence and eats away at a person's strength. The diagnosis is another slap in the face of the person affected. While many burnout patients wear their diagnosis like a medal, boreout patients try to hide the supposedly humiliating illness at all costs. Only in hypnosis do those affected learn to accept the diagnosis, not to blame themselves and to finally take control of the situation again.

The consequences of boreout syndrome include:
  • Decreasing self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Underchallenge has an increasingly negative effect on self-confidence and leads to the fact that those affected no longer have any confidence in themselves.
  • Increased feelings of boredom and underchallenge can manifest themselves in private and professional life: psychosocial, somatic and economic consequences.
  • The ability to concentrate and the performance decrease.
  • Problems in the professional environment up to loss of work.
  • Increased risk through "self-therapy or self-medication".
  • Lack of drive and dejection up to suicidal tendencies.
  • Similar to burnout syndrome, affected persons feel exhausted and also burned out in a way.
  • Mood swings and depression.

Boreout and secondary conditions

Psychologically, boreout is manifested by negative thoughts and thought circles. Very often it can be observed that untreated, in addition to exhaustion, addictions and depression. The pressure of suffering for those affected is immense with increasing duration and not infrequently accompanied by suicidal thoughts. A spiral that must be interrupted, because in addition to the psychological symptoms and illnesses, physical ones can also occur, such as cardiovascular diseases, sleep disorders, tension, back pain and headaches, digestive problems, increased susceptibility to infections due to a drop in the immune system caused by persistent underload.

Boreout hypnosis treatment

Hypnotherapy against boreout

There are many ways to deal with being underchallenged and the resulting boreout syndrome. Mostly, however, the first step is to alleviate and heal the symptoms that cause boreout. The calming effect of hypnosis and its positive effects on the immune system are particularly helpful in this regard. It starts with the breathing exercises that bring the client into the hypnotic trance, which also have very positive effects in everyday life. Moreover, during hypnosis the client learns to control his thoughts and sensations. Pain subsides, the nocturnal carousel of thoughts stops, and the affected person can sleep well again. But hypnosis also has a positive effect on the soul. It breaks the cycle of underachievement and ever-decreasing self-esteem. In trance, the client has the opportunity to explore his inner strengths anew. He recognizes the actual cause of the underchallenge and finally finds the strength to think about possible solutions.

How hypnosis works for boreout

Those who suffer from a boreout situation usually have various options. It takes a great deal of clarity to recognize which one is the right one. You will get this clarity in hypnosis. Because during the hypnotic trance, your subconscious mind has the opportunity to make its own decisions, completely independent of prejudices, conditioning and feelings of obligation. You recognize allies, know with whom you can open up and where it is better to remain silent. Thus strengthened by hypnosis, you can now take the first steps into a life without boreout. Maybe there is a works council in your company that can help you, maybe you have a good friend in or outside your company who can give you advice and support. You can also finally clarify the important question of your professional and private future in hypnosis.

Hypnosis for a stimulating, interesting life without boredom

While some people are burnt out and completely finished, others feel underchallenged, suffer from disregard and boreout. Both conditions are equally bad for health and one's own attitude to life. Both diseases also have a gradual progression in common. Hypnosis helps you not to get sick in the first place. Just one or two sessions a year will ensure that you have your life under control at all times and are always able to do what is best for you.
