Fighting fatigue, caffeine vs exercises, acupuncture can help

Many people drink coffee to help them keep their energy level up. A cup of coffee improves attention, alertness, reaction time, and mood, especially when you are tired. Why does coffee have such effect? That is because of the caffeine contained in the coffee. Caffeine can stimulate the brain to make you feel more energetic and more awake; caffeine increases urination, increases release of acid in the stomach and increases blood pressure. There are many side effects of caffeine, such as insomnia, headaches, dizziness, restless, shakiness, anxiety, dehydration, abnormal heart rate. If you stop taking caffeine, you could experience withdrawal symptoms including headaches, drowsiness, fatigue, irritability, difficulty of concentrating, nausea etc. Other risks of taking caffeine include lower risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity, but may increase cholesterol bone loss and rheumatoid arthritis.

A brief cardiovascular exercise wakes you up, speeds mental processes, and enhances memory storage and retrieval. Exercise has multiple long-lasting positive effects on physical fitness and function, cognition, mood, and behavior. All of these effect helps reduce fatigue and no side effects.

Sugar and fatigue

There are two types of sugar: simple sugar and complex sugar. Simple sugar is digested quickly and release sugars rapidly into the bloodstream. It gives you a rush of energy which wears off quickly. Fluctuation of blood sugar too much can make you feel tired. Simple sugars are found in foods such as sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, and some fizzy drinks and juice drinks. These are the sugary foods you should cut down on. Sugars also occur naturally in foods such as fruit, vegetables and milk, but you don't need to cut down on these types of sugars. Complex sugars are present in starchy foods such as potatoes, bread, cereals and pasta. They're a good source of energy and the main source of a range of nutrients. They release energy gradually. Starchy foods should make up just over a third of everything you eat.
