- IMPROPER SLEEP HABITS
Ever heard someone bragging about the little time he spends sleeping? Well science says it is bad. As an adult you need between 7-9 hours of sleep every night to be properly rested. It is best for your brain to function properly. Set an alarm to remind you it’s time for bed, dim the lights and do away with all electronic devices for about an hour before bed, if possible remove them from your bedroom.
- POOR DIET
What you take in, factors a lot. Cut down on coffee and sweet snacks, they affect your blood glucose level in a way and crash you in no time. Fruits, vegetables and proteins are better options and help fight fatigue.
- NO EXERCISE
Sedentary people who start exercising actually feel less fatigue than people who stay idle. That is a science fact. You can start exercising today, start little, 30mins a day, 5 days a week, you will still notice the benefits.
A loss in your body fluid level can cause fatigue and improper function of your systems. So make drinking more water your habit, drink water when a call comes in, when going for the next class, walking down the office. Ideally, you should drink up to about 2 litres. It could be any fluid.
Low iron, Low oxygen, High Fatigue. Eat a lot of beans, egg, nuts, peanut butter, vegetables and a lot of fruits and may be supplements but after you have seen your doctor
Don’t always set goals for yourself that are difficult and sometimes impossible to achieve, because with no satisfaction, you get tired so easily. Set time limit for each task and stick to them, then use your extra time for rest
- NO BREAKFAST
Our bodies respond with the treatment it gets at the beginning of the day throughout the day. Boost your body with a good breakfast and it is ready for an efficient work all day. Skip breakfast and it tries to work in slow-mo. It’s just saving energy. So eat a nice meal with high carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats in the morning, few hours after waking.
- DISORGANIZED WORKSPACE
Messy bed, Messy Head. Likely, a messy office, a messy head. A disorganized office or work table exhaust your brain as it tries to process so much scattered information. Batch your work locker by locker and tidy up before leaving the office so that you can start afresh the following day with an organized desk.
- LATE NIGHTS
Owing sleep debts is definite when you use your weekends to consistently stay out all night. Catching up on social life, right? It makes it difficult for you to sleep well during the week and you probably feel too tired during work hours. If you must stay out late at weekends, make sure you wake up at the usual hours, and then take a nap by noon to feel reenergized and pay up your debts.
- NO VACATION
If you are replying emails, or planning meetings when you are supposedly relaxing at a pool, then you are not really away from work. There should be a distinct line between work time and downtime. Taking real breaks will make you more creative, productive, and focused.
