RESTORATIVE YOGA FOR FATIGUE & STRESS
By Almitra Putri
INTRODUCTION OF FATIGUE
Physical and mental fatigue are different, but they often occur together. Long-term physical exhaustion can also lead to mental fatigue.
It can result from mental health issues like stress, bereavement and grief, eating disorders, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, anxiety, moving home, boredom, and divorce. It can occur with clinical depression, either due to the depression itself, or because of associated problems, such as insomnia.
The main symptom of fatigue is exhaustion with physical or mental activity. The person does not feel refreshed after resting or sleeping. It may be hard to carry out daily activities including work, household chores, and caring for others.
Common signs and symptoms associated with fatigue can include:
· aching or sore muscles
· apathy and lack of motivation
· daytime drowsiness
· difficulty in concentrating or learning new tasks
· gastrointestinal problems such as bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, and diarrhea
· irritability and moodiness
· slowed response time
· vision problems, such as blurriness
