According to the World Health Organization, burnout is defined as "a syndrome resulting from chronic work-related stress, with symptoms characterized by feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion, increased mental distance from one's job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job, and reduced professional efficacy".
As you can see, the definition doesn't mention anything about the type of professional activity, which means everybody can be affected, even if they work in online modeling, which is known as an ideal occupation for young, ambitious women and not only.
Working as a non-adult cam girl doesn't have any drawbacks: you are extremely well-paid, you can start as early as 18, without any prior education or experience, you can set your own schedule, and you don't have to undress or engage in any type of sexual activity. Actually, the only thing you have to do to entice your members
to spend as much time as possible in the private sessions with you is to talk to them and encourage them to express themselves. At first sight, nothing seems to announce the onset of burnout.
However, as we mentioned before, burnout doesn't have anything to do with the job itself, but rather with your mindset. By reading this article further, you will find out how you can keep yourself safe from burnout, and how you can avoid its onset, once the first symptoms are noticeable. If stress was the "disease of the 2000s", we can call burnout the "disease of the 2010s and 2020s", considering how many young, active people are suffering from it. It has to do with the younger generation's tendency to overwork and neglect their personal lives and mental health. This has nothing to do with online modeling but affects all areas of work.
First of all, you have to make a clear separation between work and free time. Nobody from work should have the power to bother you in your spare time and you should have a few hours just for yourself every day. When you wake up, you have to take your time, exercise, and eat at your own pace. Similarly, before going to bed, you have to make sure you read, watch TV or do something else that pleases you and keeps you in a good mood. Nobody is more important than yourself, not even your significant other, your boss, or your parents.
Secondly, you have to take each day as it comes and not let the day after tomorrow overwhelm you. A famous actor once said that "life is day after day, not month after month, or year after year"
. In other words, take small steps instead of giant leaps. Since you are working in online modeling, you have all resources to pamper yourself. Whenever you feel that something is too much, take some time off, go on an exotic vacation, or just stay at home and do nothing all day. Switching off from time to time will help you stay healthy, both literally, and figuratively!
