What to do if you do not leave the thought of vacation, coffee is not invigorating, an always sleepy state does not allow you to concentrate on important matters, and after a day’s work, the strength is enough only to watch the show before going to bed? “How to deal with chronic fatigue?” – more people are asking this question.
The syndrome of chronic fatigue is a massive disease of the 21st century, which is encountered by an increasing number of people. Doctors still argue about what is chronic fatigue syndrome – a disease or simply the state of the body at a certain stage of its life? In any case, the phenomenon is unpleasant and, in the absence of proper attention, can lead, at least, to depression, and in the worst case to the development of serious diseases.
Do you also feel apathy and drowsiness? Do you notice the absent-mindedness and decay of vitality? Do you feel “always tired” and do not know what to do about it?
How to deal with chronic fatigue?
First of all, you need to pay attention to your sleep patterns. Everyone knows that you need to sleep 7-8 hours. However, here it is important not the quantity, but the quality of sleep. Accustom yourself to a certain regime – to wake up and go to bed at one time, regardless of whether the day off is a day or a worker. Before going to bed, it is advisable not to watch TV and take away your favorite gadgets. The brain must tune in to rest.
Constant haste and the stresses caused by it also cause chronic fatigue. Take a look at your daily routine, identify “pain points” – sources of a shortage of time. Perhaps, your body feels like a “driven horse”, which is not allowed to catch its breath. Most likely, it’s about elementary overloading or wrong timing planning. Moreover, life itself makes us move faster than we are. It is more difficult to combat this, but there are also proven tools here. Allow yourself to sometimes slow down, feel the flow of life. If you can not escape to nature, there is nothing difficult to allocate time for quietly strolling along your favorite park and watching the life of a local flock of pigeons. Arrange yourself some breaks at work, when you can retire and calmly reflect. Remember that you need to hurry up slowly.
Give your brain a reprieve
Except for haste, intellectual overload seriously affects us. Every day an enormous flow of information falls on us, which we must somehow rework and analyze, and then use in our lives. Not surprisingly, over time, the brain simply refuses to perceive information, including useful. In this case, in order to avoid information overload, it is recommended to allocate 5-10 minutes a day, when you can sit in absolute silence. You will be surprised at the cleansing effect this has on your brain. In addition, our favorite gadgets become the worst enemies involved in information overload, which do not allow us to disconnect from the outside world for a minute. Unsurprisingly, in that case, you can not concentrate on business. To begin with, try eating without gadgets and without a TV, and for the time of rest or, conversely, during important events, turn off notifications on the phone. You will see how much easier it will be to concentrate and plunge into business.
The life is in motion!
The last reason considered in this article, but not the last in importance, is the lack of motor activity. This problem is especially urgent for office workers, who spend most of the day in a sitting position. Hypodinamy causes not only physical diseases but also contributes to the development of depressive moods. Make a small charge during the day – your body will necessarily enjoy a forgotten feeling of vivacity. Increase the time of walking, make yourself walk daily. And to be boring, think up for yourself a variety of interesting routes. If you are not a fan of the gym, choose a kind of motor activity that is pleasant for you: dancing, swimming, yoga, aerobics – a great variety.
As you can see, the causes of chronic fatigue and ways to combat it are simple and universal, but they are no less effective. Try to include them in your habits and you will undoubtedly see a positive result.
