Fatigue has been associated with a variety of psychoeducational issues, such as slower educational progress and more frequent school absences.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we heard about people experiencing different kinds of fatigue, whether related to burnout, being unmotivated to follow pandemic restrictions or as a symptom of infection. But what exactly is fatigue?
Fatigue is not synonymous with tiredness. When one is tired, sleep helps. Fatigue results when cognitive, emotional or physical attentiveness is required for prolonged periods of time resulting in feelings of tiredness, exhaustion or lack of energy or desire to continue a task. It is not resolved by a nap.
