31 Jul Do This to Overcome Exhaustion
Tiredness is very common. Loss of energy, a lack of motivation, or a feeling of weakness, or drowsiness are a few signs that indicate you are exhausted. You may experience these symptoms any time of the day, but it is most common during the mornings, afternoon between 1 and 4 p.m., just before bedtime, and after meals.
Here are some tips to deal with exhaustion:
Your body needs fluids to function smoothly. Not having water for a long time can make you feel drained out. Keep a water bottle close at all times and watch your water intake. Natural fructose from fruit juices is also good for enhancing moods and for instant energy.
- Eat small but healthy meals every 3-4 hours
Our body needs proper nutrition to function. A well-balanced, healthy diet can provide us the energy we need to get through the day. Healthy snacks and light meals are great options to prevent mid-day exhaustion. Herbal teas and kahwa can also help with rejuvenation.
- Get moving
Sitting in one place for a long duration can leave you feeling tired. In such cases, take a stroll around your house, workplace, or outdoors to re-energize your body.
You can also try to close your eyes for 3-5 minutes and focus on your breathing. Shavasna and Talasna are also effective for instant energy.
Wall stretches are also a good approach to relieve muscle tension instantly.
- Incorporate a long snooze
Poor bedtime habits like eating right before bed, sleeping late, watching TV, or mobile for a long duration can hamper the quality of our sleep.
A good night’s sleep of 6-8 hours will not only keep you energized but will also lift your spirits and enhance your mood to a great extent.
- Avoid caffeine and alcohol
Caffeine and alcohol produce a ‘caffeine crash,’ which causes your body to stop producing energy on its own. It also has an impact on the quality and length of our sleep. Skipping consumption will make you feel lighter, happier, and more energized by removing any external influences from your body. Your body will adjust to this change in a few days.
- Adopt yoga, exercise, or meditation:
Our busy lives keep us so occupied that we forget to take care of ourselves. Try to take out some time for yoga, exercise, or meditation. This will regulate your blood sugar levels, boost adrenaline and also keep all diseases and sickness away.
- Work on your mindset
Our exhaustion mostly comes from our mental state. We are sometimes unhappy, going through a phase, or are emotionally drained out, which causes exhaustion of our minds. This affects our energy levels and makes us feel physically exhausted.
You should change your mindset about your struggles, obstacles, and whatever problems you are dealing with. A positive approach is the first step in the right direction.
Learn to let go. Things will fall into place as they must. Try to remain calm and stress-free.
Focus on yourself, your habits, and patterns. Rectify your lifestyle habits; these tips will make a big difference in the long run.
Stay active, stay composed and beat the fatigue before it beats you. Namaskar!
