Keep your hands away from your face

This sounds simple to the extent of being absurd, but the truth is, we spend a lot of our time touching our face to relieve itching, wiping our lips, rubbing our forehead at times of stress and many other random gestures. Sweat, grime and oil from the environment are transferred to our face through our very own hands. There are plenty of bacteria and viruses everywhere that are easily transmitted via physical contact from our hands to our face. It is vital therefore to keep our hands clean at all times and in minimum contact with our face.

What Are the Components of Fatigue and How to Manage it?

Fatigue is a “state of mental or physical weakness” but this definition is still argued upon. The causes of fatigue can be listed by Exercise Psychologist but what brings fatigue, in reality, is still a question to be discussed. Fatigue can be athletic, i.e. a muscular component or mental i.e. a brain component can be involved. Mostly, athletes and sportsperson talk about muscular fatigue, which can be minimized by taking supplements or nutrients if fatigue is only muscular.

The Muscular Component

Our body produces energy when muscles work or contract due to the stored glycogen in the muscle cells. As soon as the muscle glycogen is used up, the residue, free radicals accumulate giving rise to low energy, less work and a feeling of fatigue. A decrease in lower level of Branched Amino Acid is also noticed, which are mainly responsible for maintaining the oxygen supply to the muscle cells during the workout or muscular activity.
