I think the hardest physical labor job I had was slinging cable in buildings under construction. In the middle of summer. In Texas. The first week I lost 10 pounds. The second week, I was down 27 pounds. I was drinking three gallons of water a day...literally and rarely urinating.
Hefting multiple dozens of 330ft of exterior Cat5 cable all day was definitely taxing.
However, I can see why working from home is exhausting for some people that are used to a traditional office environment. There is none of the little breaks people take for face to face socialization or getting up to go get a cup of coffee/tea/can of soda/water. Your kids are most likely stuck at home with you so you're trying to balance work and home at the same time and keep both going at least somewhat smoothly.
So it's just you, a monitor(s), endless work, and possibly screaming kids.
I would definitely find that exhausting as Hell.
