Fatigue is a common health complaint. It is however, one of the hardest terms to define and a symptom of many different conditions. Fatigue is another word for extreme exhaustion of both mental and physical strength.

Fatigue can be a normal and important response to physical exertion, emotional stress, boredom or lack of sleep. You feel you can’t go on or even talk to anyone, short breaks don’t help and you need to take a longer break to relax. Mental fatigue is caused by any prolonged activity along with high level of stress and emotions. It’s seen among individuals who work on tight dead lines for long duration and carry out tasks that require continuous attention and effort.

One can prevent fatigue by defining limits and sticking to them. Physical and mental threshold of work should be for eight hours and include some music, walk or reading in your routine then fatigue will rarely set in.

For sure-fire cures do this once a week:

Get a massage and listen to soothing music.

Eat light and go for brisk walk to pump up blood circulation.

Avoid phone calls.

Cut open, peel or deeply smell citrus fruits such as lemon, orange or lime between tasks.

Dab eucalyptus oil on a handkerchief or crush leaves by hand and inhale.

Keep a bunch of flowers like jasmine near your work space.

Dry eyes, carpal tunnel fingers and back ache are common complaints. Blink your eyes fats for around 20 times as we blink less when we stare at screen. Exercise your fingers by flexing and bunching them several times. Twirl the thumb around clockwise and anti-clockwise. Take a short walk if possible. Stretch your back. Before getting back to work take a deep breath and shut your eyes for a while. Open your refreshed eyes and win the world over in the next session of work.
