Dealing with FatigueIn my previous post, I talked about my problem with recurring fatigue in college. And as promised, I’ll now share how I was able to manage fatigue back then.

* I balanced activity and rest. Even though my days at school were always jam-packed, I managed to squeeze in time for short breaks during class, especially when our professors were absent. This way, my body had the chance to rest before I got too tired.

* I lightened up my load at school and at work. To make my work easier, I eliminated unnecessary tasks at school and at work. This strategy gave me more time to rest, thus, preventing over-exhaustion. Also, I learned how to de-clutter my work areas. This way, I was able to do more tasks with less energy spent.

* I made sure to get enough sleep. It was in college when I realized the importance of sleep to my body. Getting things done by not sleeping at night did not help me at all. Hence, no matter how hectic college days were for me, I made sure to sleep at least six hours at night to restore my energy and be ready for another day at school and at work.

What Causes Fatigue

Posted in Rcon Pascua,Uncategorized by doctorsonline on February 2, 2010

Way back in college, I experienced recurring fatigue as I was a working and studying at the same time. There were days when I was so exhausted from my student assistant duty, I slept during class. I may have enjoyed free tuition in college, but I was not learning much at class for I was always sleeping.

So what were theOver Fatigue Due To Work triggers of my frequent exhaustion? One was I had too little sleep. Back then, I go home late and I sleep late because I still need to study and do some homework from school.

Another one was eating the wrong foods, especially during breakfast. I was always in a hurry so my usual breakfast then was coffee and sometimes a doughnut. Yes, only coffee and doughnut until lunchtime. This routine of mine always resulted to sluggish mornings at work or at class.

Lack of exercise was also another trigger of my fatigue issue back then. With so much time spent at school and at work, I totally ignored the thought of exercising at that time.

What I did to cope with recurring fatigue on my next post.

You see, triggers of sleeping disorders are mostly associated with our lifestyle and habits. With this, the following are quick lifestyle tips that can help you sleep better at night:
