Looking back 3000 years ago, Homo Sapiens did not have to sit for hours behind a desk, with artificial lighting, fuelling their bodies with coffee and fast-food. They slept when it was dark and work up when it was light, with no social media and late-night work emails to keep their brains functioning. Yes, they had to work a lot harder for their food and shelter, but that’s what friends and family were for – to lend a hand. Is it so strange that we are feeling tired all the time?

Our modern lives, with its characteristic high stress, low nutrition and low physical activity contribute more to our fatigue and tiredness than we realise. You have probably read about all the usual suspects, like sleep and stress management, to help manage tiredness. How about giving these 5 unusual options a try?

Power Napping

The Mediterranean countries were onto something when they held onto their tradition of an afternoon siesta. Smart people like Leonardo da Vinci and Winston Churchill were devoted followers of the practise.

Short daytime naps (or Power Napping) are short naps that typically last between 20 to 30 minutes that are designed to boost energy levels and improve cognitive function. It’s called a power nap because it can provide a quick burst of energy to help you power through the rest of your day. Unlike longer naps, which can leave you feeling groggy and tired, a power nap is short enough to avoid these negative effects. It has been so effective that tech companies like Google and other knowledge institutions have installed sleep pods to give workers the opportunity to boost their energy and productivity after a quick nap.

So if you’re feeling tired and need a quick pick-me-up, consider taking a power nap.

Get Sunlight

Get More Sunlight

Sunlight is a natural source of vitamin D, a nutrient that plays a crucial role in regulating the body’s natural sleep-wake cycle. Exposure to sunlight can help increase the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that can improve mood and reduce feelings of fatigue.

Sunlight exposure can also help increase the production of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep. Exposure to natural light during the day can help reset your body’s natural circadian rhythm, which can improve energy levels and reduce feelings of fatigue.

Liberate yourself by spending time outdoors and getting fresh air and exercise. Consider taking your lunch break outside with some sunshine and green trees for feel-good energy.
