You are getting tired quickly, you lack concentration, you often scream and spend the whole day sleeping? Do not worry, it's a classic spring fatigue.
This disorder is very common, and is characteristic for the period of transition from winter to spring. It occurs as a result of the winter diet, and because of the reduced level of serotonin that keeps us in good mood. In some cases, the cause may be low blood pressure.
Spring fatigue is not a serious health problem, but in some people it significantly complicates the daily normal functioning.
In the spring, sleepy nature is aroused, but our body is preparing for the end of the winter season. We need more energy, the days become longer, and we want more and more time to be active and to be outdoors in the sun. The fact is that spring brings us longer days, higher daily temperature, and increased air humidity. If these weather changes occur in a short period of time, they can negatively affect our physical and mental condition.
During the winter months, the body is defended from low temperature and lack of sunlight by adjusting the level of metabolism and hormones. When the temperature is low, there is an increase in arterial pressure, a light hormone-melatonin is amplified. As the weather gets warmer, the reverse process is in progress - the pressure drops (which especially has a negative effect on people who already have low blood pressure), the hormone of happiness is increased.
The problem is how to get it painlessly from one phase to the next? Often, this process does not go smoothly due to climate change, where we move from a moderate continental climate to the continental, so we need to get used to long summers, and short and variable autumns and winters.
Those who suffer from spring fatigue can help themselves by introducing vitamins and minerals into their body and physical activity. Lack of vitamin C, as well as an increase in cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood, are most often the effects of winter, "heavy" eating and physical inactivity.
Sweets can quickly mend the mood, but this is not a long-term solution. The right solution is carbohydrates that slowly dissolve during digestion: black bread, pasta, rice and potatoes. The best combination for raising the level of serotonin is a slice of wholegrain bread and a plate of lens or vegetable soup.
The lack of vitamin C leads to cloning, so it is necessary to eat as much fresh fruit and vegetables as this year. Due to the transition from strong, spicy food, in light spring meals, the organism also reacts with murder. In young radishes, zucchini, broccoli, carrots and green salads, there is enough vitamins, but there are not enough calories, and the organism is rapidly starved after such a meal. But, seasonal vegetables are valuable because it is rich in antioxidants that help the body to clear itself from accumulated toxins.
Exercises stimulate the body to produce more energy. Research has shown that people practicing in the open space are much less prone to depressive thought than those who do not exercise at all. In the morning, gently stretch beside the open window, and during the day find half an hour for easy running or walking. You can spend as much time for yourself.
