Natural Treatment for Physical and Mental Fatigue

Abstract

Fatigue is not just tiredness. Fatigue can make it tough to get out of bed in the morning and avert a person from completing their daily activities. We know sportsmen are exhausted in many ways, but it’s not just physical tiredness that’s affecting their performance. As we study Fatigue Science, we discuss reduced alertness, effectiveness and reaction time – all of which evident in the form of sub-optimal athletic performance.

This mental fatigue results from improper sleep or when our daily routine activities fall outside of our biological need like sleep at night and be active in the day time – it is not considered under physical fatigue. Physical and mental fatigue are different but they can occur together, like repeated physical exertion can result in mental fatigue with time. Eating a healthy diet and getting regular physical exercise can help many people to reduce fatigue. Try to know about underlying causative factors  and treating them helps to cure fatigue. In this article we will look at the types of fatigue, causes, treatment and know about the Ayurvedic aspect of fatigue.

Introduction

Fatigue is a symptom not a particular health disease. Fatigue is associated with many health conditions and lifestyle factors. The majority of us have the same feeling after a prolonged physical or mental activity that completely resolves after rest. But if the feeling of tiredness is prolonged, progressive, severe and occurs without much exertion then it is a case of concern.

Fatigue is of two main types Physical and Mental fatigue. People with physical fatigue find it hard to do physical activity as they normally used to do due to muscle weakness. Mental fatigue makes you feel overwhelmed and drains you emotionally and it seems like your problems and responsibilities are impossible to overcome.

Classification of Fatigue

There are two main types of Fatigue

1. Physical Fatigue

The overall feeling of lack of energy and tiredness is termed as physical fatigue. When a person finds it hard to do the things they usually do in their daily activities like climbing stairs or walking. Then this is not just a feeling of tiredness or sleepiness but along with that one may feel lack of motivation or loss of energy. Various disease conditions ranging from mild to severe can cause the symptom of fatigue, while some of our lifestyle choices like improper diet or excessive exercise also naturally result in physical fatigue.

INTRODUCTION

Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a multiplex personality disorder often invented with other affective and personality disorders.The word “ narcissism” originates from greek word mythology. It is the story of narcissus, a handsome young man who fell in love with his own reflection on a pool of water. The word narcissism is also known as  self obsessed, often to describe someone who seems  full of idiomaticity. They are their own topmost priority. People suffering from this condition are in love with this inflated self image as it allows them to avoid the deep feeling of insecurity. Narcissistic personality disorder involves egocentric, aggressive  thinking and behaviour, lack of affinity for the people.

A narcissistic personality disorder causes problems in many areas of life, such as relationships, work, school, and financial affairs. They are always disappointed and unhappy.
