Already from the early burnout studies, the relationship between this chronic work-related stress syndrome and a number of health symptoms, such as sleep disturbances, was pointed out. After introducing the basic notions related to the two topics, this contribution presents an updated review of the main studies that explored the relationship between burnout and sleep, in order to outline the research evolution and underline its main results. Specifically, the paper intends to focus the attention on the dynamic processes able to explain the relationship between burnout, disturbed sleep and work, and their development over time. Open issues and research implications will be also discussed, outlining possible future research directions in this area.
