Nutritionist Lovneet Batra, in an Instagram post, lists down ways you can manage workplace fatigue.
Tips to manage fatigue in workplace:
Avoid cutting down on your sleeping hours. A good night's sleep will make you feel refreshed, charged and energetic the next morning. In case you struggle from falling asleep, don't use electronic devices an hour or two before you go to sleep, and turn to calming drinks like a cup of chamomile tea.
Naps night shifts
People who have night shifts should squeeze in a short nap. According to the nutritionist, “a 30 min nap after a night of restricted sleep decreases sleepiness and increases subjective alertness.”
Hydration is the key. Keeping optimum levels of water in the body impacts both your physical and mental health. After all, dehydration can lead to low energy levels. Keep sipping water or consume flavourful connotations to maintain the hydration levels in the body.
Give yourself a break
“Include short bursts of activity throughout the day,” said Lovneet Batra. And, she even suggests sticking to an exercise plan. Any form of exercise, be it yoga, aerobics, or even hitting the gym, releases endorphins that naturally boost your energy levels.
Say no to caffeine
Are you used to consuming numerous cups of coffee at the workplace? This is your cue to cut it down. Too much caffeine may leave you feeling depleted. Lovneet Batra says, “Avoid caffeine as it may give you an initial boost of energy, after it wears off you may be left feeling depleted.”
