We lead a rhythm of life that is sometimes almost infernal, unbearable. And it has its consequences. Not by chance fatigue has become a problem of modern life.
The access to different technologies, the long and exhausting work shifts, the economic problems and the endless activities we have to carry out in our daily life are causing a crisis of fatigue in a large part of the world population.
This problem has not been recognized as such, but it is becoming a burden for those who suffer from it. The consequences of fatigue are different, some common as those that we present below.
Fatigue and stress
Sometimes fatigue prevents us from carrying out our daily activities normally. It is the first step in getting into a situation that causes us great worries and stress about our obligations.
This it can lead to serious situations such as domestic violence or insomnia, which prevent us from carrying out our daily activities with awareness, generating vicious circles.
"Taking time each day to relax and renew is essential for living well."
-Judith Hanson Lasater-
Fatigue limits the quality and quantity of activities a person can perform and can thus cause depression.
It is important to address this situation. We have to analyze our agenda for identify the activities and obligations that can be modified, postponed or eliminated, starting with the less important ones.
"Healing comes from taking responsibility: from realizing that you are creating your thoughts, feelings and actions."
Sometimes the person suffering from fatigue loses all intention of interacting with those around him and just wants to rest and sleep.
While it's helpful to take time out for yourself, it's also important maintain social relationships to avoid loneliness.
Fatigue causes accidents
One of the most visible consequences of fatigue are accidents. These usually occur when the person is so exhausted that they lose control of your body and objects that can damage it.
When symptoms of fatigue are present, small falls or bumps are common, but also serious road accidents that can cause damage to third parties.
Possible solutions to fatigue
Contrary to what one might think, it is important to avoid caffeine and tobacco because they often prevent the body from resting properly.
In the same way, It is very important to keep track of your sleep habits; it should be remembered, in fact, that it is the best tool that our body has to recover energy after a hard day of work.
In the event that it is not possible for us to sleep for a long period of time, you can take short naps of 20 to 40 minutes or up to an hour. Although in doing so the body does not rest in the same way, it manages to have a better recovery and order of ideas.
Another aspect that needs to be taken care of is food. It should always be varied and healthy to ensure the correct intake of vitamins and minerals that the body needs to stay healthy.
Your life is more important than any business
Our life and our health must be a priority, so we have to carve out a space to play sports, socialize and have a better quality of life.
It is a fundamental question maintaining order in our lives, identifying priorities and adapting our day according to them.
This does not mean that work should be left out for the family, but it is necessary to give everything its space. Every activity has its moment and you have to learn to maintain a balance between all of them to lead a life as pleasant and relaxed as possible.
