High alcohol use, physical inactivity, being overweight, and having a physical or mental illness also increased the risk of burnout.

High job strain was present in 23 percent of workers, and was the most important risk factor for burnout. After adjustment for other factors, workers with high job strain were seven times more likely to be "burned out" than those with low job strain.
