Easy Ways to Try and Deal with Exhaustion after a Major Health Operation
Being exhausted all the time can have a profound impact on your health. You may feel as though nothing you do helps and that things are never going to change. This is not the case at all, and you would be surprised at how much a few small lifestyle tweaks can make all the difference to your health.
Try and eat vegetables that are very dark in colour. This can include broccoli or even spinach.
There are even power food supplements out there that can boost your energy and your immune system as well. This is especially useful if you have just undergone a major operation or even health treatment because it can help your body to make the most out of the energy that it has while also helping you to fight off any potential infections. If you have undergone chemotherapy or cancer treatment then eating healthily can also help you to stay more focused in the day, and at times it can help with nausea. If you are currently undergoing cancer treatment, it’s also worth considering looking into any groups you can join, such as the Inspire Lung Cancer support group.
Carpooling is a great way for you to save fuel, but it also means that you don’t have to worry about driving when you are so tired. So many accidents happen every single year because people fall asleep at the wheel and this is the last thing that you need to worry about when you have already gone through so much. You may be thinking that you have had enough sleep and that this can’t possibly happen to you. When the body is exhausted however, whether it’s through lack of sleep or due to recovery, it can shut down and enter microsleep. This is a 3-4 second sleep that you may not even be aware you’ve had, and it can be very dangerous if you are out and on the road.
Get Out in the Sun
Just half an hour in the sun can really increase your levels of Vitamin D. This is responsible for fighting fatigue, and it can also boost your mood as well. If you have just undergone a major operation, then you may spend most of your time indoors recovering and this is completely normal. If you can however, you should try and get outside as soon as you are able. You don’t have to plan any activities either. In fact, just sitting out in the sun can really help you to give your body the boost it needs.
Eat a Lot of Small Meals
Your body will most likely be in a state of shock for quite some time. For this reason, you need to try and eat smaller meals throughout the day. When you do this, you can easily increase your appetite and you can also avoid overwhelming yourself as well. Eating small meals throughout the day is also the best way for you to combat nausea if this is an issue.
