International Yoga Day 2022: Easy at
Sometimes, you get irritated when you come home after an exhausting long day at work. You want to rest when you are up 3 whole nights preparing the presentation your boss wanted. But you are not able to sleep because of a bad headache that's not responding to the pill and you’re dizzy. Sounds familiar? Irritability, body pain, dizziness- all the symptoms above are clear indications of fatigue.
Fatigue is extreme tiredness that one feels from mental or physical exhaustion. Additionally, fatigue can either be a sign of or can occur from the use of drugs or therapies for health issues like anemia, acute liver failure, kidney diseases, anxiety disorders, and chronic inflammations.
In simple words, fatigue is a feeling of exhaustion with minimal energy and close-to-nil enthusiasm for any activity. So what does one do when they neither have the energy nor the mood for any activity, be it even daily chores?
