The COVID-19 pandemic is not over. As we move into 2021 with no end of COVID-19 in sight, many of us may be feeling fatigued and wondering how we will keep fighting the COVID-19 fight.
Do you know the signs of pandemic fatigue? Do you know what to do about it?
For many of us, 2020 was filled with challenges: from lockdowns, to physical distancing, to home-schooling, to job loss and financial stresses. Ongoing exposure to stressful situations, can leave us feeling physically and mentally exhausted.
An accumulation of ongoing negative or challenging life events can result in us feeling emotionally drained and may include emotional, physical and performance symptoms (source: Mayo Clinic).
