Office Fatigue – what causes it and how to overcome it

office fatigue

We have all felt that afternoon slump feeling. Where your eyes start to feel heavy,  concentration levels take a dive, and your fingers move like sloths across your keyboard. There’s nothing wrong with this feeling every once in a while, but when it occurs more often than not, then we suggest taking a deeper look into the cause of your office fatigue.

Possible reasons for fatigue

There are a number of reasons you may feel exhausted at work such as lack of sleep, lack of movement during the day or working long hours with little to no breaks.

A less obvious reason may be the lack of vitamins and minerals in your diet. It’s not surprising that the cause of lower energy is often nutrient deficiencies. Your body has trillions of cells that rely on vitamins and minerals to generate energy. If left unchecked, the same deficiencies that make it hard to keep your head up can lead to long-term health consequences. From brittle bones to impaired brain function.

3 common nutritional deficiencies leading to office fatigue

1. Magnesium

This mineral is essential to the human body. More than 300 metabolic reactions involve magnesium. A key reaction is energy production. Dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, beans, avocado, bananas, yoghurt and dark chocolate contain magnesium. Most people are still not getting as much magnesium from their diet as they should. Which leads to issues such as high blood pressure, mental illness, twitches and cramps, muscle weakness and fatigue.

2. B Vitamins

B vitamins are comprised of B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6, B12, folic acid, and biotin. These are responsible for turning food into energy. No energy means no work will be done at your office. Each of these B vitamins is found in different foods that is why a well-balanced diet is of utmost importance.

3. Antioxidants

Mitochondrial energy production needs antioxidants. A lack of antioxidants causes an increase in free radicals (Our bodies generate free radicals naturally. Lifestyle factors such as stress, poor diet, pollution, smoking and alcohol increase free radicals) a high level of free radicals affect the mitochondria’s ability to provide us with energy.
