5 Tips to overcome Mental Fatigue

Fatigue can have physical or mental causes. Mental fatigue is the result of over-activity of the brain , this is a condition where the brain cells become exhausted - much like our bodies do when we've been physically over-active.
Fatigue can result from overwork, poor sleep, an unhealthy diet, adrenal fatigue, thyroid and hormone imbalances, medication side effects, anxiety or depression, experiencing an overall lack of meaning to life.

Tip 1 - Have a Good breakfast
Start the day by having a fulfilling breakfast. This provides the body with good energy and helps one to approach and communicate with team members with vigor. Also research indicates we’re chronically dehydrated, which is an energy zapper. Eight glasses of water per day can do wonders.

Tip 2 - Having a Realistic approach to Stress
Have the attitude of seeing the world through different perspectives—a realistic outlook and not through a single dimension alone. During stressful situations, do not allow hardship to turn into bitter people or helpless victims, choose to use stressful circumstances to become stronger and better.

Tip 3 - Watch nature with greenery
Coping tip: find plants /trees to look at for atleast 5-10 minutes or simply walk down a tree-lined street. Just looking at trees can significantly reduce the amount of stress in your life. Greenery helps alleviate mental fatigue by relaxing and restoring the mind.  We have an option to take a deep breath and look at the trees instead of focusing on worries lurking inside our heads.

Tip 4 – Feel emotions as it is
Any emotion i.e., anger, love, hate or being excited should be felt and dealt without any attachment to the feelings. They should be felt head-on and the emotions can be managed by being a mindful watcher. The energy released while experiencing these emotions can be channelized to creative energy.

Tip 5: Have a good laugh at stressor
Have a good laugh. Share the lighter moments with your colleagues or family members who are available near you. Laughter is contagious and will catch up soon. Listen to some humorous jokes, watch some comedies or even short YouTube clips at the end of the day on your commute home. According to latest research, laughter has both short term (stimulates organs, releases endorphins, eases tension) and long term (improve mood and immune system) benefits.
