Modern day culture and American culture in particular stresses hard work and long hours. We need only look at the bustling American economy to see the fruits of our labor. And what does it take to work so hard? More energy.
The number one thing that can hold us back from working longer is fatigue. Fatigue can be a sign of exhaustion; sometimes all we need to do is take a 15 minute cat nap in the afternoon to help energize us.
Drink More Water
Dehydration can contribute to fatigue. If your feeling tired, coffee can help but coffee can also be the culprit in causing dehydration. Next time you feel fatigued, drink 2-3 glasses of water and you’ll notice a quick pick me up.
Go out for a short brisk walk, the combination of walking and a burst of fresh air is sure to reignite your alertness.
Stimulate More Adrenaline
Adrenaline is what gives us that flight or fight rush. Even though we don’t want something so exhilarating, a little stimulation to the adrenal gland can go a long way in fighting fatigue. Open either one of your hands and about 1 inch below your middle finger, there is a round bone. Rub it in circle motions for 20-30 seconds at a time in each hand and this should pump more adrenaline.
Finally, if you are feeling fatigue all the time it usually can be remedied by sleeping more.
