The road back: From burnout to increased wellbeing : - a qualitative study of burned out women’s stories (English)
Abstract [sv]

Idag finns ett stort problem med stress i samhället där många drabbas av utmattning, särskilt kvinnor. Det är av stor vikt att hitta sätt att arbeta med detta på ett hälsopromotivt sätt för att minska problematiken. Syftet med studien var att beskriva utmattade kvinnors upplevelser av självvalda hälsofrämjande aktiviteter som fått dem att må bättre. Studien analyserades med en manifest innehållsanalys där data samlades in genom skriftliga reflektioner. Deltagarna skrev ned sina personberättelser utifrån den öppna meningen “Nu ska jag berätta om vad som hjälpte mig må bättre i samband med min utmattning/stress...”. Resultatet formulerades sedan i tre underkategorier och en huvudkategori. Huvudkategorin gavs namnet “Vägen till ett bättre mående: genom återhämtning, aktiviteter och acceptans” och underkategorierna “Insett vikten av sömn, återhämtning och vila”, “Gjort aktiviteter man mått bra av” samt “Anpassat livet till nya förutsättningar”. Resultatet visade att det som varit gemensamt för deltagarna är processen de gått igenom från utmattning till ett ökat välmående. Deras väg har startat med sömn, fyllts på med hälsofrämjande aktiviteter och sedan landat i acceptans och anpassning till den nya livssituationen. Resultatet visade även att det inte finns en universallösning utan att det är individuellt vad olika personer behöver för att behålla en balans och må bra. För att få en bättre balans behövs ett brett grepp om hälsa där flera faktorer samverkar för ett större välmående.

Abstract [en]

Today there is a major problem with stress in society where many suffer from burnout, especially women. It is of great importance to find ways to work with this in a health-promoting way to reduce these problems. The purpose of the study was to describe women's experiences of self-chosen health promoting activities that helped them feel better. The study was conducted with a manifest content analysis where data was gathered through written reflections. The participants wrote down their personal stories based on the open sentence "Now I will tell you about what helped me feel better in relation to my burnout/stress ...". The result was formulated into three subcategories and one main category. The main category was named "The way towards better wellbeing: through restoration, activities and acceptance" and the subcategories were "Realized the importance of sleep, recovery and rest", "Performed activities that made you feel good" and "Adjusted life to new conditions". The result showed that what was in common for the participants was the process they had gone through from fatigue to increased well-being. Their journey started with sleep, then they added health promoting activities and landed in acceptance and adaptation to the new life situation. The result also showed that there is no universal solution. What different people need to maintain a balance and feel good is individual. In order to achieve a greater balance, a broad approach to health is required, where a number of factors can cooperate for a greater well-being.
