Menace 7. Students Fatigue.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we learnt about a number of types of weariness, including burnout-related fatigue, a lack of willingness to follow pandemic standards, and exhaustion that was a sign of infection. But what precisely is fatigue?

Fatigue is different from being tired. Sleep helps the exhausted to recover. Fatigue, which manifests as feelings of exhaustion, a lack of energy, or the desire to continue an activity, can result from prolonged cognitive, emotional, or physical focus. It won’t go away by taking a nap.

Inability to concentrate, anxiety, and increased distractibility are typical signs of weariness. In order to differentiate between different types of fatigue, medical professionals and researchers currently define weariness as being either physical, cognitive, or, as it has more recently been conceptualised, social-emotional.
