Spring asthenia presents as generalized fatigue, both physically and mentally. Do you know the feeling of not being able to with life? Well, that expression is the one that best defines spring asthenia.

You have a hard time getting out of bed, thinking about going to work exhausts you and everything makes you ball. Don't worry, nothing strange is happening to you. Every year, with the change of season, many people experience this state, which apparently has no clear cause. It is usually associated with weather and/or time change, going from winter to spring.

Asthenia usually lasts one or two weeks, in some cases up to 20 days. Although it is true that we cannot prevent it, we can try to mitigate its symptoms and make it as bearable as possible.


We can adapt to time changes before they occur

In this way we will gradually get used to the new schedule. It is important to take into account the schedules, especially those of meals and at bedtime, these must be regular. To do this we must establish a routine and stick to it.


It is also very important to respect the hours of sleep

If we don't get enough rest, our body won't have the energy to function all day. To improve the quality of sleep try to eat dinner at least an hour before bedtime and, if possible, a light dinner. When you go to sleep, do not use your mobile or other screen that wakes you up and makes it difficult for you to sleep.


Try to eat a healthy and balanced diet with seasonal foods

Include fresh fruits and vegetables in your meals and reduce the consumption of processed or high-calorie foods.


Drink water!

It's such obvious advice that it seems silly, but take the subject of hydration seriously. Now it starts to get hotter and therefore we sweat more and our body needs to take in more fluids. Tip, keep a bottle of water handy and within sight. Every time you see her, give her a drink!


Move a little

Moderate physical exercise is recommended for many things, as well as for asthenia. Doing some sport will help you release stress and generate endorphins, serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin. These hormones will help you achieve a feeling of well-being. So now you know 😉.


Do not self-medicate

When we feel a little more down than normal we usually think that with a vitamin supplement we fix everything, 🔊wrong!🔊 Before taking any medication, we should consult a doctor or pharmacist. The excess of certain vitamins can be harmful to health.
