4 Ways To Recover From Exhaustion

May 6, 2015

Exhaustion is a state of extreme physical or mental fatigue. A new Harvard study shows that 1 in every 4 people report experiencing exhaustion on a weekly basis. Unfortunately when we are tired life can be a lot more challenging. We are cranky, stressed out, and have a hard time seeing the bigger picture.

Here are a few of the most effective ways to combat exhaustion:

  1. Get moving. While this might be the last thing on your mind when feeling tired, study after study shows that physical movement boosts energy levels. It doesn’t require a full 60-minute workout either; a 10-minute walk outside will do you so much good.
  2. Drink more water. Dehydration steals almost all energy and impairs physical performance. Not to mention, not drinking enough water causes concentration and alertness to decrease.
  3. Body Clock. Do you sleep in for hours on the weekend to “catch up” on sleep? Bad news, this is one of the worst things you can do for your internal clock. One of the surest ways to suffer from exhaustion is going to bed and waking up at different times through out the week. Consistency will allow your body to adjust and maintain your schedule.
  4. Get more sleep. It can really be this simple. If you are only getting 5-6 hours of sleep every night take a nap in the afternoon. You only need about 10-15 minutes in order to boost energy levels.
