Hello, my dear readers of our useful website! 🙂

Living in a swiftly developing world, we often get tired too quickly, become annoyed at everything very easily and may even fall into depression. We suffer from soreness and sleepiness that interfere with our usual tempo of life.

Of course, the appearance of such symptoms makes us consider the necessity of an extra vacation.

However, when our vacation is over, we notice that we haven’t overcome exhaustion and depression.

Moreover, they’ve become even deeper and got accompanied by physical disorders.

Some people feel muscle soreness; some people suffer from stomach ache, and others become vulnerable to pressure surges. Sometimes all these symptoms may occur simultaneously.

If you recognize these symptoms and experience them once in a while, you are likely to be diagnosed with a chronic fatigue syndrome.

What is chronic fatigue syndrome?

If you get totally exhausted by the end of your day and suffer from insomnia at night, cannot remember the name of your interlocutor which you have been told a minute ago, and if you get annoyed at every trifle, you definitely have to start worrying!

There is a chance that you have fallen victim to the relatively new but already a widespread disease – chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

CFS, which is now a well-known and widespread disorder, has not been discovered until 1970-80s.

Its appearance is closely connected with the huge acceleration of the tempo of life and the increase in psychological pressure on people.

The first symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome include fatigability, soreness, weariness, lack of energy and apathy.

As a result, a person ends up with memory disorders, and he/she needs more time and efforts for solving complicated problems.

Then a person may suffer from causeless fears, insomnia, soreness in joints and muscles, headaches and even loss of appetite.

American scientists have analyzed more than 2000 cases of this disease, and they have discovered the following regularity of its occurrence.

CFS usually strikes people with the most able-bodied age (28-45 years).

Women, who are more emotional and susceptive by nature, suffer from CFS twice as much as men.

Businessmen and journalists (people who suffer from stresses at work) belong to the high-risk group.

This group should also include people who live in ecologically rugged regions, areas with a high level of environmental pollution by harmful substances, or in the regions with the increased level of radiation.

Chronic fatigue syndrome usually attacks people who often change their daily routine or spend most of their day in the places with artificial light.

What is the origin of chronic fatigue syndrome?

«Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.»

Dale Carnegie

Scientists from all over the world try to solve the mystery of the CFS origin. However, they haven’t yet discovered the exact reason of its occurrence.

The only hypothesis, that the scientists have already made, is that the reason for CFS may consist in nervous work or working overtime.

Nevertheless, this hypothesis doesn’t explain why CFS strikes more women than men.

I’m not a scientist, but I have something to tell you. In most cases CFS happens because of hopelessness and stupor. Nowadays men and women have equal rights. Women have won the right to work, BUT!

But they have not shifted their house chores on men! That’s why men work for 8 hours a day, and when they return home, they lie on the couch doing nothing.

If you try to reproach them, you’ll definitely hear the following answer: “What do you want from me? I work and I receive a big salary for my work! That’s all I have to do!”

Women see this situation from a different angle.

Important facts: How to stop panic attacks?

Women also work for 8 hours a day, but when they return home, they have to do cooking and cleaning, to do laundry and to watch after kids (if they have them, of course).

As a result, men are relaxing while women are doing house chores until the middle of the night.

At some point this accumulated exhaustion bursts out and develops into a chronic fatigue syndrome.

Obviously, it is only one of the causes for CFS, but you cannot disagree that if men listened to their women and helped them around the house, there would be fewer cases of CFS.

Besides that, CFS can occur due to the long stupor, when a person doesn’t make any progress in life.

However, despite the numerous reasons of CFS occurrence, this disorder CAN and HAS to be cured!

Let’s start!

How to overcome chronic fatigue syndrome?

  1. Tip 1: Make some changes!

    Sometimes CFS occurs because of the prolonged stagnation.

    You keep working, but you don’t see the target goal of your work.

    Or you’ve been working on a project that brings you neither pleasure, nor money.

    In this case you’ll have to change your work or move to another place.

    Such changes in life will give you a fresh start and help you get rid of your tiredness.

  2. Tip 2: Start going in for sports.

    It has been proved that sedentary life has a negative effect not only on human muscles, but on the human body in whole.

    If we ignore exercises, we will end up feeling broke and depressed.

    If we start going in for sports, our body will produce more endorphins, which help to relieve stresses and physical disorders.

    Thanks to sport we get rid of stresses and depression!

  3. Tip 3: Get enough sleep.

    When you start fighting CFS, you have to follow the strict schedule of sleep.

    Go to bed at the same time every evening and sleep for at least 7 hours.

    If you don’t get enough sleep, you are accumulating tiredness that cannot be fought by one night of good sleep in a week. As a result, you become easily irritated and can fall into depression.

    Do you really want to end up with that?

  4. Tip 4: Eat healthy food and stop dieting!

    If you transfer from one diet to another, your body doesn’t get enough food.

    Your organism doesn’t receive enough energy and gets tired very easily.

    Fat people suffer from the opposite problem, if they eat only pasta, hamburgers and meat.

    Such food doesn’t supply your body with the necessary amount of nutrients, and your body suffers from that.

    Sometimes a person cannot explain his/her fatigue: he gets enough sleep, eats a lot of food, but still doesn’t have energy for anything.

    This can be explained!

    Your food ration should be well-balanced and rich in necessary minerals and vitamins.

  5. Tip 5: Say “NO” to antidepressants and energetic drinks!

    Modern youth tries to fight tiredness with energetic drinks, but that’s not right.

    Of course, you can have a can or two of energetic drinks once in a while, but you should let your organism rest afterwards.
    Such drinks usually contain taurine and caffeine, which irritate the nervous system.

    If you become addicted to these drinks, you will end up in the psychiatric clinic!!!

    Moreover, you’ll have problems with your liver and vessels.

    If you don’t have anything against it, you may continue drinking energetic drinks! You’d better drink at least 9-10 cans a day!!!

    The same goes with the antidepressants.

    They improve the person’s condition, but their effect is not long-lasting. When the effect is gone, a person starts feeling even worse than before taking antidepressants.

    Besides, if a person is addicted to antidepressants, he/she has insomnia, which can be cured only with hypnotic drugs.

    By the way, the US is a leader in cases of death by suicides only due to antidepressants.

    Of course, if you really want to get acquainted with Hades, take a lot of antidepressants, followed by energetic drinks! This should work!

  6. Tip 6: Work isn’t going anywhere.

    Chronic fatigue syndrome is usually a disease of workaholics and perfectionists.

    If you belong to one of these categories, try to change your lifestyle and stop longing for perfection.

    Nobody will estimate your efforts, and you will only waste a lot of time which you could spend on rest or other important tasks.

  7. Tip 7: Be optimistic!

    It is a well-known fact that optimists are less vulnerable to depression and take everything easy.

    Besides, such people rarely fall ill and overcome stresses quicker. Practise positive thinking and stop overreacting!

  8. Tip 8: Find yourself a hobby.

    People who have hobbies are falling into depression more rarely.

    That’s why you should engage yourself in something interesting.

  9. Tip 9: Run away from your husband!

    This tip will be really useful for you if your husband is an alcohol addict or an idler.

    There is no need getting stuck with such person, especially if you have a decent admirer.
