The condition of having more work than one can handle without suffering negative physical, emotional, or spiritual side effects. Generally used to refer to an employee's condition, though one can certainly feel overworked after a long afternoon's chores about the house. One who is overworked may feel this way not merely because of workload, but because the compensation one receives for performing such work does not agree with one's idea of how much one deserves to be paid.
