Spring Fatigue – avoid it naturally
Spring arrives and the blue sky is part of the pattern of warmer temperatures and the fragrance of nature awakening. However, some people instead of flourishing in this environment see their energy, performance and well-being diminish.
This contradiction has a cause summarized in two words: spring fatigue. It affects more than half the population, according to a survey conducted by the Centre for Research on Phytotherapy (INFITO).
Based on the same source we know that among the population it is mainly women between the ages of 35 and 50 who suffer from spring fatigue. In addition, there are those who suffer allergies. Also affected are self-employed workers (40%) and students (23%).
Andrea Calderón, a nutritionist at the Spanish Society of Dietetics and Food Science (SEDCA), states in Infosalus that “fatigue is characterized by a state of weakness and lassitude that leads to an inability to perform routine activities and a decrease in appetite”.
Spring fatigue, also called asthenia, is not a disease, but merely a temporary disorder that requires rather than medical attention an improvement in habits. Normally it lasts between 10 and 20 days, the time the body takes to adapt to the new condition. If symptoms continue longer than a month, it could be due to another type of problem, such as an allergy or anaemia.
