EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS AND CONFLICTS, especially anxiety and depression, are by far the most common causes of prolonged fatigue.

It may represent a defense mechanism to keep you from having to face the true cause of your depression, such as hating your work, or your job. 

It is also your body's safety valve for repressed emotional conflicts, such as an unhappy marriage or an an unhappy home, or an unhappy environment.

When these feelings are not expressed openly, they often come out as physical symptoms, with fatigue as one of the most common manifestations. 

Dr John Bulette,a psychiatrist at the Medical College of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia says:

''Many people who are extremely fatigued don't know they're depressed. They're so busy distracting themselves or just worrying about being tired that they don't recognize their depression.''

One such condition is tired-housewife  syndrome. Many victims are young mothers who day in and day out face the the tedium of caring for a home and small children-

Fixing meals and generally having no one interesting to talk to and nothing enjoyable to look forward to at the end of each boring and unrewarding day.

The tired may be inwardly resentful, envious of her husband's job and guilty about her feelings. But rather then face them head on, she becomes fatigued.

Today, with nearly half the mothers working outside , tired-housewife syndrome  may also develop from conflicting roles and responsibilities, and guilt over leaving the children, often accompanied by genuine physical   exhaustion from trying to be all things to all people.

Emotionally induced fatigue maybe compounded by sleep disturbance the results from the underlying psychological conflict. 

A person may develop insomnia, or may sleep the requisite number of hours but toss and turn all night, have disturbing dreams and awaken exhausted.

Understanding the underlying emotional problem is the first crucial first step toward curing psychological fatigue, and by itself often results in considerable lessening of tiredness. 

Professional psychological help, or career or marriage counselling, may be needed.

But there is also a great deal you can do on your own to-deal with both severe and prolonged fatigue and periodic washed-out feelings.

Vitamins and tranquilizers are almost never the answer. Sleeping pills and alcohol are counterproductive, and caffeine is at best a temporary solution that can backfire with abuse and cause life-disrupting symptoms of anxiety. Instead you might try:

If you eat a skimpy breakfast, or none at all, you're likely to experience midmorning fatigue, the result of a drop in blood sugar which your body and brain depend on for energy. 

For peak energy in the morning, be sure to eat a breakfast low in sugar and high in protein, which will provide a steady supply of blood sugar through the morning.

The same goes for the rest of the day; frequent snacking in sweets is a false pick-me-up that soon lets you down lower than you were ever to begin with. Stick to regular, well balanced meals.

Extra weight is tiring both physically, and psychologically. Getting the weight down to normal can do much toward revitalizing you.

This increases,  rather than saps, energy. Regular conditioning exercise, such as jogging, cycling, swimming or walking, helps you to handle a bigger work load. 

Exercise also has a well recognized tranquilizing effect, which helps you work in a more relaxed fashion and cope with tension. Exercise at the end of the day can give you energy in the evening and help you sleep better.

If you're tired because you don't get enough sleep, the solution is simple: Make sure you go to bed earlier. Insomnia and other sleep disorders should not be treated with sleeping pills, alcohol or tranquilizers. These make the problem worse.

Try to schedule your most taxing jobs for the time of the day, when you're at your peak. 

Some  ''morning people''  tire by midafternoon; others of us work best in the evening. Don't overextend yourself, trying to climb the ladder of success at a record pace or meet everyone's expectations of you. 

Recognize your energy cycles and plan accordingly.

Now matter how interesting or demanding your work, you'll be able to do it with more vigor if now and again you stop, stretch, and change the scenery. 

Instead of the traditional cup of coffee and a sweet roll on your break, try relaxation, meditation, yoga, calisthenics, a brisk walk or a, or a, OR A content contribution for !WOW!.
