'''Akedia''' (in Latin, '''''accidie''''') is literally fatigue or exhaustion, but in technical usage refers to the spiritual and physical lethargy which can plague those pursuing the [[eremeticism|eremetic]] life.  The reference in [[Psalm]] 90 (91 MT) to the "demon of noonday" is traditionally identified as akedia.  It can take the form of listlessness, dispersion of thoughts, or being inattentively immersed in useless activity.
