We are always on the move, literally running from one place to another. We can’t afford to be late for a meeting or we could get fired or worse could end up losing our jobs.
We can’t afford to be late getting back home from work or the wife might end up losing her temper and apart from not cooking for you, you could end up spending the night on the couch.
This constant ordeal of making sure that you are on time everywhere has eaten into your own time, your personal time- time that you should or would have spent on leisure and recreational activities or maybe even just getting some rest.
This has led to a lot of problems to arise which affect your health and many other complications. A major health issue that has cropped up due to our lifestyle is fatigue.
Fatigue arises due to a combination of various things such as lack of sleep, lack of exercise that the body receives and lack of exercise for the mind. It could also be caused due to overexertion of the body and mind and lack of rest.
As a result it is apparent that fatigue is caused due to various reasons some or all of which can be controlled. Listed below are a few easy things that you should try and adopt to ensure that you do not experience fatigue and experience a happier life.
The first and most important thing is to understand what is causing you to get tired. Is it being overworked or under paid? Is your fatigue caused due to lack of exercise or is it due to lack of sleep?
Most often you will realize that it is more than one thing that is causing you to get fatigued. Once you are able to identify the cause of your fatigue you can begin tackling it.
Exercise is very important to help you overcome your fatigue. Think back to the days when you were younger and you used to play a lot- running, cycling, shooting hoops try and remember all the activities that you used to participate in. Now do you ever remember feeling fatigued when you used to play these sports?
The answer is a positive no. Get back to playing or indulging in some sort of physical activity. Jogging, cycling, swimming or even joining a football club are great ways to exercise and would ensure that your body receives the exercise that it is craving for.
The plus point is that you would also loose the extra weight that you have put on and feel a whole lot better about yourself. This also helps to improve your self image thus reducing your fatigue.
Sleep deprivation is also a major cause of fatigue. Ensure that you get the right amount of sleep and the right quality of sleep. Both are crucial and help dealing with both emotional as well as physical fatigue.
Make sure that your surroundings are quiet, comfortable and that the light is shut out to ensure that your mind and body is able to rest. A good night’s rest sometimes is all you need to bring the spring back in your step.
Avoid getting stressed out with trivial things and don’t let deadlines bog you down.
