The best remedy to avoid the constant feeling of fatigue is trying not to let it stay inside you. Remind yourself that it's all in your mind, and don't let it become a minor neurological disorder. Leading your life differently, reducing stress and being more positive are some tips to help you avoid letting the fatigue affect with you for a long time.


There are other tricks that will help you avoid this feeling. For example, lead a healthy, balanced diet. We recommend having an energising breakfast rich in vitamins and high-protein with complex carbohydrates, complex carbohydrates for lunch and a light dinner. Think about how having a big dinner will make you feel heavier and is not good for your sleep, which will leave you moody, frustrated and exhausted the next day, which can make you very unproductive and stressed. Changing your eating habits is the first step to avoid fatigue.

Moreover, in terms of food, you should try to have a varied and balanced diet. In order to give your body all its daily needs, you should eat large amounts of protein, minerals, vitamins and trace elements. Think about how not giving your body the nutrients it needs will cause deficiencies, which can become continuous fatigue.


Sleep well, rest better. Make this rule a part of your way of life. It is important to get enough sleep (7-8 hours per day), neither too much nor too little, but what your body needs to perform properly. Adapt your schedule to your needs in order to function at 100%.


Also, respect your sleeping pattern and sleep regularly. Often, staying up late and sleeping intermittently doesn't help our body not to feel tired, but quite the opposite. Get used to going to bed at a sensible time or even earlier if you have to get up early the next day. On the other hand, to also ensure your sleep, we recommend keeping your mind blank before going to sleep, to ensure a good night's rest. As soon as you get to your bedroom door, put any problems relating to your work, home, kids or chores out of your mind until the next day and... Sweet dreams!

Organisation. Sounds simple, but it isn't. You must learn to do everything in due time and don't try to cover everything. When you finish your working day, don't keep thinking over work issues; when off work you are free to have fun... So have fun! Organise time to spend with your family, friends or by yourself. Disconnect during the weekends and fully commit yourself to leisure and rest to help you not feel as tired during the week.


Mens sana in corpore sano - a healthy mind in a healthy body. This saying reminds us that to have a healthy mind we must, too, worship our bodies. Do some moderate sport or exercise daily. This will not only help you look and feel better, but it will also help you to let go of your adrenaline and stress. A few minutes a day will help you unwind and release tension. Pamper yourself!


Learn to delegate. This is another key factor that will help you avoid fatigue. You must learn to share tasks so you don't burn out. Not just at work but also at home. Don't feel that you have to take on so many responsibilities that will stress you out. Just remind yourself no one is indispensable, so dedicating yourself 100% to your work or other tasks, will only give you headaches. Rely on people you trust.


Learn to say "no". This sounds easy, but it often turns out to be more complicated and just makes us go take on more tasks, activities or commitments. As mentioned earlier, organisation is critical to avoid fatigue. You must learn to say that you need to rest, because you cannot continue with such a high workload forever. Moreover, it can quickly take its toll. Saying "no" occasionally helps give you a break.

Last but not least, relax. A massage, a nap, meditation, a nice relaxing bath... Something that you can dedicate a few minutes to. Not thinking, and finding peace within yourself will help you be free from fatigue. Find the method that works for you and get rid of stress and avoid burning out.


If you can't beat the feeling of fatigue, we recommend that you go to your doctor. They will help you to make this disorder go away. Try to take it slow and learn to appreciate the good and beautiful moments that life gives you. You will notice the difference!
