Englisch:Burnout recently has become a highly debated term all around the world. As a result, it is a phenomenon that experiences an increase in frequency combined with personal and economic consequences. In the last few years there has been a public discussion about the issue of ‘burnout, which made the topics of a performance society that is in the process of burning out and the discovery of general exhaustion something to talk about in the media. The typical form of burnout, however, does not correlate with our modern concept of time. Time, as managed by society addresses the need of people to become ‘faster, higher and stronger. Nowadays, reality is characterized by an increase in working pace, a time table crammed with activities, multitasking as well as the lack of or rather total loss of recovery phases. However, the side effects are not taken seriously enough, unless the body shows severe problems due to this exhausting lifestyle. This paper deals with the manifestation of burnout with regard to time and bodily experience of people suffering from burnout in a private clinic in St. Radegund, Styria. Additionally, there will be an analysis as to what extent the sense of time plus the drive of the patients get deregulated and how far this correlates with the symptoms of burnout. The empirical part of this paper encompasses an anonymous collection of data during a period of four weeks. This assessment is based on the FWF project Bodytime (Paletta), which then serves to form various categories and as a resource to draw results from.
