Does it sound familiar to you? That feeling when you find it hard to get up, take off your eyelids in the morning, and ultimately when you feel without energy as if your batteries have run out. Have you had those moments of fatigue, or do you suffer from them regularly? Now, in addition, in the middle of autumn, they tend to be more frequent …
Why do these bouts of burnout happen?
In the first place, it would be necessary to look as always for a reason for this discomfort. Feeling tired and even discouraged after a hard day’s work or a bad night is completely normal. It is also logical in the first days of autumn when the body must change routines and schedules, and there are fewer hours of light and a drop in temperatures. What is not normal is to become a chronic physical and mental state. Something very important is not to panic since it does not always have to be a medical problem. However, if you have doubts, it is best to go to a specialist and check it. In most cases, tiredness and fatigue result from bad habits and a completely unbridled pace of life.
