Sun is shining, flowers are blooming and the open-air season has officially begun!
But, while nature is finally waking up, all you want to do is - sleep. And the "best" part is, you didn't even spend all night out partying. In fact, you got a good 8h of sleep, but somehow you are still feeling tired, without energy and motivation to do anything.
Don't stress, spring fatigue syndrome is actually a natural symptom caused by our physical system. During winter months, due to shorter daylight hours, your body runs low in hormones like serotonin a.k.a happiness booster. With the arrival of spring and longer hours of sunlight, the body needs to naturally adjust, so your body temperature rises, blood vessel dilates, and blood pressure sinks. More light causes the body to release more of the “activity hormone” serotonin while the amount of melatonin still stays high. Your body can't adapt to this change overnight, so as a result, you may feel lethargic, less motivated, and tired. To put it bluntly, there is a scientifically proven reason why you are not feeling mega active in the beginning of spring.
These 5 simple tricks can help you overcome spring fatigue in no time:
1. Swap your morning cup of coffee with matcha
Matcha makes the perfect source of stable energy. The main difference with coffee lies in the way Matcha delivers caffeine to your brain. The caffeine in Matcha is absorbed and released slowly over a period of 6-8 hours, which means it provides a sustainable energy boost, rather than a rapid spike and “jitters” associated with coffee.
4. Get active
We know establishing a regular workout routine can be a pain, but a short power walks or city bikes can also do the trick. Anything that includes movement will improve your metabolism and enhance blood circulation, which will as a result make you more energetic and motivated.
