When you are overtired When you are overtired

Fatigue is associated with a lack of energy and motivation.

Unlike sleepiness (feeling the need to sleep), fatigue is a normal response to a physical or emotional effort, boredom or a lack of sleep. According to the website MedlinePlus, it may also be a sign of a physical or mental disorder when you are not getting relief from good rest, a balanced diet or when using alternatives to manage stress.

Similarly, if you are experiencing symptoms such as headaches, stomachaches, exhaustion, dizziness, a loss of interest in your favorite activities, difficulty falling asleep or the feeling that you do not wake up rested, you may have chronic fatigue and it is important to check with your doctor.
