Weak despite the sunshine – how to defy spring fatigue

Our tips against spring fatigue: Get out in the fresh air!

  • Go outside and get some fresh air and exercise. This gets the circulation going. The sun accelerates the production of the mood enhancer serotonin and inhibits the sleep hormone melatonin. Short walks and the first bike ride of the season can work wonders. When you become active, meet up with people and talk and laugh in company, you give your body and soul a boost and counteract bad moods.
  • Avoid a fatty diet and supply your body with vitamins and trace elements by adding fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables to your diet. It's better to eat several small meals. In this way, you can reduce your weight and improve your performance at the same time.
  • Start the day with alternating cold-warm showers. This strengthens the immune system, boosts the circulation and refreshes the entire organism. Make sure you always finish with cold water.

However, if the symptoms persist for months, we recommend that you consult a doctor. That way, you can be sure that there are no illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), hypothyroidism or depression at the root of your symptoms.
