Spring means renewing yourself and getting ready for the summer. Therefore, you need to wake your body up and get into full speed. However, adapting to the change in mother nature is not always easy and can bring challenges with it. This is called spring fatigue and below you can find ways to overcome it.
- Start Eating Healthier: Start your day off with a healthy breakfast. Don’t skip eating breakfast. You don’t need to eat a full breakfast everyday but at least you can eat fruits, oatmeal, yoghurt or cornflakes. This will help you boost your energy in the morning and also, you will get all the necessary vitamins and minerals you need to take. In addition, drink enough water to keep your body hydrated and get rid of the toxins. Don’t forget that dehydration can cause headaches and exhaustion.
- Exercise: Adding exercising into your work day will help reduce your stress as well as lower your anxiety. For example; going for a walk during lunch time definitely boosts your energy. Also, exercising enhances the immune system. Therefore, it reduces your risk of being sick. When you exercise, you use more energy and in order to regain your energy, you need a good sleep. Therefore, if you exercise regularly, you can fall asleep easier and also, get a better quality of sleep. When you wake up in the morning because you had a good sleep, you become more energetic.
- Change Your Mindset: Don’t focus on how tired you feel. Try to remove this thought out of your mind. Change your mindset and think positively. If this doesn’t work, then try to take breaks during the day at work. For example; take your coffee and go to your coworker’s desk for a chit chat. This will help you recharge your energy and refresh your mind. This is a win-win situation for both parties because it will make the same effect for your coworker too.
- Listen to Your Body: Your body actually tells you what it needs. You just need to listen to it and act accordingly. If you started to feel sleepy, then go to bed early and sleep more. If you feel overwhelmed, then, slow down and work less for a few days or take a day or two off and go to somewhere where you can get some rest and clear your mind. For emotional stability, you can try yoga, meditation or any kind of similar practice.
