[I asked for permission to share the following stories]
Some weeks, an employee messaged me in response to a short post I sent out. She described feeling foggy and exhausted, a little out of sorts. Then she used the phrase, “pandemic fatigue”. Another said they were forgetting things or why they stood up to go to the kitchen. And yet another employee described feeling tired and drained more than usual.
Pandemic fatigue seems to be a thing. We have never, in our lifetime, faced so many changes, decisions, and new practices (masks, 6 feet, elbow bumps, hand sanitizer, toilet paper).
