What Is It Covid Fatigue & How People's Emotions Are Leading Them To Be Vulnerable To Covid?
My life as a psychologist is very interesting because I get insight into how people think, feel and behave.
I have had many conversations with patients, doctors, EMT’s, fire fighters, contact tracers, athletes, police, pastors, etc. and have noticed a theme about how people are putting themselves at risk despite being aware of the danger.
I read an article published in www.psychologytoday.com about “Covid Fatigue” that explained the emotions preceding someone putting themselves at risk for Covid exposure despite the risks.
COVID-19 Fatigue is a complex of emotions that include boredom, loneliness, sadness, frustration, anxiety, fear, anger, and resentment, all brought on by the loss of activities and social relations produced by pandemic restrictions.
Let me know your thoughts and let’s begin to discuss solutions so we can all be safe.
