Fatigue seems to be a problem that occurs in all walks of life and all over the world. This is because fatigue symptoms have different causes, such as psychological problems, for example, but also changes in seasons, physical causes,.... Thus, it is not always easy to identify exactly what has brought about fatigue symptoms.

Despite the different causes behind fatigue symptoms, we do see certain patterns of fatigue in people, namely fatigue symptoms as a result of our emotional state. That is, fatigue is linked to:

  1. How we handle difficult, (everyday) situations in our lives
  2. Our mood

For example, you may not sleep as well due to stress, which in turn brings on fatigue symptoms. In addition, feeling gloomy can, for example, make it harder for you to sleep and make you feel restless, which in itself can also trigger fatigue symptoms.

Fatigue symptoms? You're weak!

So experiencing fatigue symptoms has nothing to do with whether or not you are a weaker person than someone else. Despite your free choice in how you handle difficult situations, this does not mean that you are weak. You have simply chosen to react in a different way, a psychologically unhealthier way in the long run, to difficult situations such as arguments, work pressure, exams, family problems,....

Of course, this is not to say that stress or feeling gloomy are not natural responses to difficult situations. However, if you keep this up over the long term, they can affect your psychological and physical well-being by triggering fatigue symptoms, for example.
