Stress: I would say different stressors are experienced by different people; there is no one single answer to this. I would say find a reputable psychotherapist to consult with about what bothers you.

Lack of motivation is depressing me. I have no energy. What do you suggest to get out of this slump?
Encourage you: To see your doctor to determine if there is a medical cause for your symptoms. If you get a clean bill of health - consider working with a good therapist to help you dig out of this slump. If you do have a medical issue - it should be corrected. If you have clinical depression that is often addressed with antidpressant medication. Take care.See 1 more doctor answer
