There is a time in the life of each of us when there is absolutely no strength and nothing is desirable. It becomes difficult to do even everyday things, let alone make some big decisions. In this article, we will try to understand the causes of sleepiness, apathy and fatigue, and also try to figure out how to deal with them, how to treat them.
What is Apathy?
Apathy is a product of crisis and disbelief. The exact opposite of apathy is enthusiasm (an indicator of faith, a more active state). The reasons are different, but more often than not, apathy is just the result of misfortune or failure.
Causes of apathy:
- Stress, failure
- Endocrine dysfunction
- Chronic diseases
- Unrealized creativity
- Alcoholism, drug addiction
- Elderly age
- Long-term medication
How Does Apathy Appear?
Let’s say a person invests his strength and energy in a certain business, hoping to get a certain result in return, but after the lapse of time nothing changes and the person does not get what he wanted. As a result, he begins to lose strength, energy, mood, as well as interest in the world around him.
During this period, a person experiences unbelief and lack of enthusiasm, and the lack of faith and enthusiasm is apathy. The ancient scriptures said that life begins with faith, and faith is the first step towards stable enthusiasm and absolute truth. Therefore, you need to learn to believe in good things that must penetrate into the very heart! Why is it important and how can you learn to believe?
Why Is It Important And How Can You Learn To Believe?
In life, there are many failures, falls and misfortunes, for example, a break in relationships, a crisis, loss of money, and so on. During this period, the amount of negativity outweighs all the positive and all the good in a person. Therefore, in order not to experience disappointment, you do not need to believe in money, business, country or partner, because everything can change at any moment, because we live in a constantly changing world.
The country was socialist, but it became capitalist, a loved one was a betrayer, but became a traitor, business ceased to generate income, this is all a false belief. To prevent this, you need to believe in the absolute truth and this will be a stable enthusiasm. Only after you learn to believe, you will be able to overcome failures with your own energy, without waiting for someone’s help, because the state of apathy is, first of all, helplessness.
You can be in a state of apathy for your whole life, with the thoughts that suddenly something will change, or someone will help. Those. a person thoughtlessly functions and waits for everything to be fine, and that’s when it doesn’t get better because of day after day, year after year, misanthropy sets in, when you no longer love life, people and even your loved ones. Now you understand how deep this is and why it is very important to learn to believe.
How to Beat Apathy?
To begin with, you just need to think about where such a reduced tone comes from (to conduct an introspection, understand yourself and find out the reasons). There is such a concept as “Vitality” – the presence of vital energy, and energy always finds an idea how to realize it. So, if there is no energy, this is the first problem. If you are a healthy person, but you do not have vital energy, then perhaps it goes to unfinished experiences. People who are getting treatment for alcohol abuse, face a hard time beating apathy but with the right treatment, they get better.
Often people are faced with a series of events that are shocking and often people forget about it, but the shock does not go anywhere. This foul, deep and even not always conscious tension remains, and new ones are added to it, as a result, such a suppressed state arises in which there is no vital energy.
Therefore, the first thing to do is to get rid of unpromising waste of energy, and the second is to find something that gives you strength. These can be ordinary physical things: workouts, walks, outdoor recreation, communication. The sum of these approaches will allow you to restore your tone and find a use for your energy.
Sleepiness / Fatigue: Causes and Treatment
The causes of drowsiness (most common):
- Lack of sleep
- Poor nutrition (lack of energy)
- High consumption of coffee
- Sleep disturbance
- CFS (Chronic Fatigue)
First of all, it is worth figuring out whether your sleepiness is a physiologically adequate norm for you, which is related to your lifestyle and regimen, or is it a pathology. Urban people constantly lack sleep – this is due to their lifestyle and urban living conditions. If you have no pathologies, then drowsiness is enough to simply get rid of. To do this, you need to adhere to the regimen, start exercising or just walk in the park, drink a vitamin complex and quit bad habits.
There is a cider of sleep phase shifts. When a person feels tired and drowsy throughout the day. It is hard for him to wake up, he has dysphoria and aggression. Gradually during the day, he wakes up, and in the evening, he feels a surge of energy. So, instead of going to bed earlier, getting enough sleep and getting back to normal, he begins to waste time on his own affairs, up to 2-3 o’clock in the morning, and in the morning this horror is repeated again. A pathological level of sleepiness is often found. When a person falls asleep in an inadequate situation (at work, while driving). Such a pronounced pathology is called “Hypersomnia syndrome”.
How to Treat Sleepiness?
Such syndromes and sleep pathologies are treated in about the same way. To do this, you need to be treated with sedatives in the evening in order to deepen the stage of incipient sleep and increase the number of inhibitory mediators in the central nervous system.
In the morning you can drink coffee (as a stimulant), and the use of light nootropics with a stimulating effect is also allowed. There are no owls and larks, if you find yourself with sleep phase shift syndrome or pathology, then you need to contact a neurologist.
