The phenomenon of chronic fatigue during the war

One of the most urgent questions that a psychologist works with during the war is chronic fatigue syndrome. Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disorder of the body characterized by extreme fatigue or fatigue that does not go away after rest and cannot be explained by any other disease, and lasts for at least six months. As a rule, the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome in a person is: excessive emotional stress; performing monotonous activities for a long time; lack of quality rest; not the ability of a person to use his time correctly.

The main symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome are:

  • low mood;

  • lack of motivation for any activity;

  • sleep disturbances and poor appetite;

  • aspiration to social isolation.

To overcome chronic fatigue syndrome, you should listen to the following recommendations:

  • follow a stable daily routine;

  • try to distribute time evenly between work and rest during the day;

  • divide your day into separate tasks with a specific time for their completion;

  • include regular sports activities in your schedule;

  • take time every day to be alone with yourself.

In addition, an effective tool that can be used to overcome the effects of chronic fatigue is psychotherapy with a professional psychologist. A psychologist will help you restore your body's internal resources. It will teach you to purposefully use the resources of your psyche and properly allocate your time. Moreover, working with a psychotherapist will encourage you to invent and implement new ideas, which will contribute to the development of your creative abilities and significantly increase your ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Therefore, we recommend that you do not delay in contacting a specialist if you have existing symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.
