    10 Tips to Help Fatigue
    avatar
    Scott Zashin, MD posted:
    Over the next 10 weeks, I hope to provide 10 tips that I provide to my patients to help with their fatigue. Hopefully one of them might provide some benefit to you.

    Do you experience lethargy/ fatigue in the afternoon within in hour or two of lunch.

    I find it is not uncommon after lunch to feel afternoon lethargy. Consider drinking a glass of green tea or enjoying a cup of coffee before lunch. Try to avoid a very heavy lunch and if you are having pasta, choosing marianara over cream sauces might give you some extra pep in the afternoon.Consider a ten minute walk before you go back to work after lunch.
