A University of Leeds alumnae, Katrina Antram, has suggested ways to tackle fatigue in her new book presented on Alumni News of the institution. In the book Antram says she was under severe burnout when pursuing her career, and able to empower people on how to look after their health, drawing from her own experience.
She says people should be aware that being tired all the time is not normal, and that fatigue remains persistent unless the cause is known.
She discloses that after graduating she suffered high stress, repeated burnout and fatigue, and was “always unwell; I had broken sleep, headaches, pins, needless aches, pain…nausea.”
However, proffering solutions, Antram advises that accumulation and change of daily habit brought a tremendous change, saying, “One should take a tiny action each day and be consistent,” advising against setting a huge goal that cannot be met.
She writes that people have to focus on nutritions that helps the brain, immune and gut, creating a balanced plate with good nutrient density by adding to the plate and not taking away.
She says a healthy gut microbiome is important, encouraging stress reduction techniques like diagrammatic breathing which reduces the likelihood of having a stressed- out tummy.
Katrina encourages that sleeping well will do magic, and that drinking of two cups of magnesium flakes in the bath can help induce sleep.
She advises that a walk first in the morning can reset the circadian clock, and keeping the same sleep and wake time is key, stressing the importance of exercise.
Katrina also advises that supplement can work, and that relieving and decongesting the brain in order to start the day anew, which allows other things to be in order is important.
