3. Focus on your work-life balance
We are not advocating that you reject a well-paid job or move on to a lucrative concert, but in a post-Uber world we have more opportunities than ever to earn some extra money at night, on weekends or 24 hours.

While experts cannot fully agree on the origin of work exhaustion, they do agree that it can have some serious repercussions, such as fatigue, insomnia, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, according to The Mayo Clinic.

To get some relief, set a budget and meet the limits, work on your balance between work and life, and consult a mental health professional if necessary.
