Welcome to the post-viral fatigue resource series. We hope that this series of resources will provide some support to you on your health journey. In order to help organize all of the content that we cover, we have developed a framework to help guide you.
Each one of these sections will explore a different aspect of managing post-viral fatigue. You may be familiar with some of the ideas or they may be completely new to you. In either case, be sure to pick out the tips and strategies that apply to your experience. We’ve created a ‘Glossary’ to clarify concepts or terms that are covered in the material. Explore the handouts and resources at your own pace and try out some new ideas.
