- Jaideep Bhide

Fatigue is an extreme tiredness resulting from mental or physical exertion or illness. It is a condition characterized by a number of symptoms such as lack of motivation, reduced efficiency, constant tiredness, inability to concentrate and remember things, shortness of breath or muscular weakness after the slightest activity. Dealing with Fatigue: Here are a few simple ways in which we can prevent fatigue from occurring or reduce its severity - 1. SLEEP: The human body needs 8-9 hours of quality sleep per night. Switch off your phone an hour before bedtime, maintain an ideal temperature and avoid eating at least 60-90 minutes before bed. 2. EXERCISE: Ideally, lift weights. If you can’t do that, then try any of the following: walking, running, bodyweight exercises, Yoga. 3. PROPER NUTRITION: Make sure you are eating a balanced, nutritious diet that is not deficient or lacking in any macronutrients. 4. REDUCE STRESS: Try these to alleviate stress: Yoga and Meditation, Gentle Pranayamas such as Anulom-Vilom, Sheetali Pranayama or Bhramari Pranayama, get a pet or go out to be around nature. One needs to be vigilant against the signs of fatigue and take corrective steps at the earliest!
