What is work fatigue?

Work fatigue is a condition that can be caused by various factors. It can be brought on by working long hours, not getting enough sleep, or having a demanding job. Work fatigue can also be caused by stress. 

Symptoms of work fatigue or burnout:

  • Tiredness
  • Exhaustion
  • Lack of motivation
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Irritability

Why do I feel tired all the time?

There are many reasons why you may be feeling tired all the time. It could be due to your work schedule, or not getting enough sleep. If you are working long hours, you may not be giving your body enough time to recover. 

Stress can also cause fatigue. When you are stressed, your body is in a constant state of fight or flight. This can lead to exhaustion and fatigue.

How to manage stress:

  • Try to identify the source of your stress and see if there’s anything you can do to eliminate it. If that’s not possible, find ways to manage it better or relax more 
  • Where possible, set boundaries and delegate tasks to others
  • Communicate more effectively and be sure you’re not holding all your problems in 
  • Take care of yourself both physically and mentally. This means eating healthy, exercising, getting enough sleep, and making time for enjoyment
  • Set realistic goals for yourself and your career
  • Find a fulfilling project or hobby to do in your spare time – scrolling through your phone doesn’t count! 

How to stay productive at work when you’re exhausted:

If you’re feeling exhausted at work, there are a few things you can do to try and boost your productivity. First, make sure you’re staying hydrated throughout the day by drinking plenty of water. It’s also important to eat regular meals and snacks to keep your energy levels up. Additionally, take breaks – both to rest your mind and body, and to give yourself time to move around. Finally, try to cut down on any unnecessary tasks that might be draining your energy. By following these tips, you should be able to work more effectively despite feeling tired.
