Fast forward to 2020. For several months now, many of us have been confined to working and living in the same exact space in our homes. We’ve all been in and out of lockdown, and on the edge of a spiraling global economy as a result of the pandemic. For many, those anxieties that Petersen highlighted a year ago couldn’t feel any more salient.It goes without saying that the arrival of COVID-19 has shifted how—and where—we work, dramatically. While some have been furloughed or made redundant, causing anxieties of their own, a large proportion of people are having to work from home or in extraneous circumstances. As a result, those who have continued to work over the past eight months are increasingly exhausted. An August survey found that 58 percent of US workers reported feeling burned out, an increase of almost 15 percent since March, while another survey found that 60 percent of people felt they had been working more hours since restrictions came into place.
