Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho explains the unrelenting stress of the pandemic can cause people to feel numb, tired, and exhausted. "Our body is not meant to be in this chronic state of stress," she says noting the rules of COVID have changed repeatedly and when this all might be over is up in the air.
Dr. Judy says the signs of burnout can include:
Exhaustion: She notes some people can feel tired even after sleeping through the night.
Feeling distanced from loved ones: Dr. Judy explains this might also include wanting to isolate.
Feeling ineffective: The psychologist notes feeling like you are a bad parent, employee or partner can also be a sign of burnout.
To cope, Dr. Judy and Dr. Ian Smith suggest:
- Accept these feelings
- Do 1 thing each day that does bring you a feeling of control
- Make a joy list and practice them daily, which should include the things or activities that you are able to safely enjoy
Dr. Ian also suggests everyone spend 1 hour a day doing something they love to do.
