Work-related fatigue: Some vocations include a lot of physical labor, which tires you. If there's not enough recovery time between work sessions (esp w/shift work), one gets more and more run down. More often though, people are working in jobs which are stressful, hold no interest for them, or which do not align with their personal values. This kind of fatigue may come from loss of joy, creativity, and inspiration.
