Infographic: The psychology of work fatigue


Have you ever gotten home from a long day sitting at a desk and wondered why you were so tired?

Based on researches by various institutions, Psych Degrees has compiled an infographic, summing up the possible reasons behind this fatigue and what managers and leaders can encourage their teams to do in order to cope better.

Fatigue is defined as a state of physical and mental exhaustion beyond tiredness - including lack of motivation and low energy, and the signs include: tiredness that lasts for days despite adequate sleep; difficulty concentrating, confusion and disorganisation; and feelings of depression and anxiety.

People who work night shifts, rotating shifts, long hours and early morning shifts are more at risk of experiencing fatigue. Healthcare providers, first responders and service employees fall in this category.
