In his recent write-ups on health matters, Dr. Saiid Kwasi Adu, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Last Homeopathic Clinic Ltd., challenged the common notion that fatigue is solely a result of physically demanding work. Dr. Adu emphasized that fatigue encompasses both physical and mental aspects, comparing it to the effects of stress.
He continued that it is important to understand its characteristics in order to prevent and address it effectively.
According to him, short breaks taken during the workday, such as tea or lunch breaks, are meant to provide individuals with an opportunity to rest and regain their strength.
Dr. Adu, a renowned doctor specializing in homeopathic treatments for chronic diseases, highlighted the importance of rest in combating fatigue. He explained that excessive mental exertion can strain the brain, leading to the need for rest and improved concentration. To facilitate this, Dr. Adu, a practitioner of homeopathic medicine, advocated for regular periods of rest, such as weekends and holidays, which allow for both physical and mental rejuvenation after prolonged periods of work.
In outlining the characteristics of fatigue, Dr. Adu described its impact on performance. Whether it is physical or mental fatigue, an individual’s ability to carry out tasks diminishes. Even simple activities may be approached with the same uncertainty as a novice, wasting valuable time and reducing overall efficiency. Additionally, those experiencing physical fatigue get tired more quickly than usual and require longer periods to recover from exhaustion.
Distinguishing between the signs of physical and mental fatigue, Dr. Adu pointed out specific symptoms to look out for. Mentally fatigued individuals may lose interest in activities they once enjoyed. For example, a passionate teacher might feel unmotivated to teach, while a cooking enthusiast may prefer purchasing prepared meals outside. On the other hand, physically fatigued individuals may experience weakness in the body and a feeling of being “flatfooted.” Moreover, fatigue often leads to moodiness, irritability, and a decline in work output.
To prevent or alleviate fatigue, Dr. Adu provided advice on lifestyle adjustments. He emphasized the importance of work, exercise, and rest/sleep, and suggested creating a balanced timetable that incorporates these elements. For students, this would involve a schedule consisting of study time, exercise, and ample rest. In cases where fatigue has already set in, Dr. Adu recommended taking a complete break from work or studies for a few days, focusing on exercises, rest, and sleep until the symptoms subside.
Dr. Saiid Kwasi Adu’s insights shed light on the nature of fatigue and offer practical ways to avoid or manage it. By recognizing the signs, individuals can make informed choices to prioritize rest, engage in regular exercise, and strike a healthy balance between work and leisure. His approach to fatigue also underscores the significance of identifying its symptoms and prioritizing self-care to maintain optimal physical and mental well-being.
