Within Focus: reduce your tiredness

Tiredness after sleep can be a sign of fatigue which may appear due to several reasons. While a little daily weakness after a hearty lunch, training or a busy day is a part of the normal routine, some of the signs may indicate that it is time for some changes. The first thing to review is your daily routine.

The quality of sleep is crucial. It is impossible to make up for sleep on the weekend to cover the sleepless working nights. Falling asleep while watching TV is a warning signal of low-quality night rest. Tense muscles without intense training should be another wake-up call. In combination with fatigue, it may indicate a problem in keeping the body from generating enough energy. A good way to decrease muscle pain is to take a bath with some aroma oil like lavender or salt.

Do you have a constant hunger or craving for sweets? Craving for sugar out of control means your body is trying to get the energy, but this does not last long. Therefore, we come up with some ways to full out the body with energy.

The first thing to change is normalizing the sleep schedule. According to the National Sleep Foundation (February 2, 2015), people aged 26-65 need 7-9 hours to rest and brain rejuvenation. This is enough to get your brain clear the next morning and achieve the new heights. A balanced diet is another important aspect to reduce tiredness. A sufficient amount of water is the basics that are mentioned almost everywhere. Like flowers, people need water to be healthy and beautiful, and to keep the water element balanced. Various fresh foods consumption supply the body – our temple- with vitamins and minerals.

It is a common mistake to consume caffeine to get more energy. However, this is a short-term help, and the enormous amount of coffee and other caffeinated drinks lead to higher tiredness in time. It can be difficult to completely abandon caffeine, but we have a tip on how to minimize it. “Within & Without” Hari Tea contains 42% of jasmine green tea that contains significantly less caffeine. Moreover, this infusion is enriched with the rich taste and aroma of ginger and lemongrass which makes tea consumption especially enjoyable.
