COVID Outbreak: Increased Stress Levels, Mental Fatigue and Environmental Psychology

It feels great to know that most organizations are taking every possible step to empower their remotely working employees with right tools, planning, and support.

In spite of organizations being showing great care for their employees, many of us are still juggling between goals, deliverable, timelines and work pressure which has increased during this pandemic due to lack of resources and doubled efforts required to meet business requirements. Many of us appreciate this new way of working from home, yet for most of us it has bought isolation, loneliness, burnout and fatigue.

As the time is rolling by, and organizations are trying to do cost cutting and save on resources, employees have started experiencing frequent exhaustion due to continuous hours spent on online meetings and sitting on laptops.

Most of us do not understand these periods of low energy & exhaustion when we start experiencing them but it is something that results from overuse of the brain’s inhibitory attention mechanism. While multitasking and trying to focus on a specific task, our brain try to inhibit all potential distractions or suppress increasing number of stimuli(something that activates functional reaction in cells or neurons). This results in neuro-psychological phenomenon what is known as Directed Attention Fatigue (DAF).

How this affect us and our work ?

  1. Incorrect understanding or interpretation pertaining to projects or tasks which are being communicated
  2. Feelings of restlessness, confusion, forgetfulness while thinking
  3. Impulsiveness and recklessness acting out-of-character while responding
  4. Inability to plan things and make appropriate decisions or make judjements while funtioning
  5. Being short-tempered and feelings of unpleasantness emotionally
  6. Being irritable and antisocial. Avoid social interactions

What could help in recovery from mental fatigue?

  1. Exposure to nature like Forests, Plants, Trees, Mountain landscapes or Beaches could act as restorative functions for attention restoration
  2. Outdoor environmental activities like gardening, terrace farming, organic farming and kitchen gardening might help in reducing fatigue
  3. Getting enough sleep and break from work is also necessary

Attention restoration theory (ART) clearly states the effect of exposing to nature on people’s relationships and health.

Mission Green Delhi(MGD) community help people collaborate to create environmentally sustainable society around them. They nurture themselves to adapt to new climate change and also learn to manage their mental fatigue in the COVID outbreak.
