Managing fatigue is difficult due to its vagueness as a symptom and condition. It is classified in various categories, either physical, emotional, or as symptom and disease on itself. Chances are always high that there are underlying medical issues behind fatigue e.g. a drop in blood sugar or depression. If you wish to feel better, these issues must be looked at. If you are not successful in pinpointing the source of your fatigue, you need to seek help from a doctor for a diagnosis. The source is most often traced back to bad lifestyle habits that have surfaced in our modern world. There are a lot of natural methodologies designed to fight fatigue, and they include the following.
How to relieve fatigue and stress build-up.
There is a common assumption that once you feel fatigued, all you need is a nap. Surprisingly, lying in bed all day trying to recover from an illness is a good example that napping will make you feel more sluggish rather than feel better. Over resting has opposite effects than we assume it to have, while exercise which is overlooked boosts energy in our bodies for a long term. If you feel fatigued and you are glued to one position, you just need to get a healthy dose of refreshing air that replenishes your body and most importantly your mind. A bonus is once you go back to your nap it will be more meaningful and refreshing than before.
Potato water has been used traditionally all over the world as a home remedy for feeling fatigued. Soak potato slices in water making a potassium filled drink that replenishes our body’s resource inventory, unlike magnesium that is readily produced by the body. Lack of enough of potassium in our muscles reduces the ability to move with ease due to nerve impulses not firing right.
Red blood cell count
Iron is an important nutrient in our body. With it, our bodies produce enough amount of red blood cells which contain a protein hemoglobin that carries oxygen absorbed by the body. Imagine a body without oxygen, functionality would reduce and cause cramping of muscles. This is a condition named anemia. To fight this, make some nettle leaf tea at home which is rich in iron and vitamin C.
