You did it again didn't you?
You woke up feeling like you've been hit by a brick wall. Just standing up takes a herculean effort let alone walking to the bathroom. You know this feeling well and you know you'll have about as much energy today as a garden snail in a heatwave.
Was it a big night out partying? A restless night's sleep? Or perhaps your immune system is currently in an epic struggle trying to save you from coming down with something?
Either way: There's a good chance that today will be a total write off and you will get nothing done.
But it doesn't have to be like this. You can still be productive despite feeling terrible.
Christian Baker, a professional speaker and nutritional specialist, shares 5 damage control strategies on how to fix fatigue quickly and make the most out of your day.
This sounds completely counter intuitive and feels especially so when your growling stomach is begging you for food but trust me on this, your limited supply of energy for the day must be kept for the brain and not wasted on digestion for the time being.

But what about my appetite? It's kinda hard to focus on work when you're hungry!
I hear you, so please allow me to introduce you to...
The average person completes approximately 2 hours of actual work in every 8 hour working day and even high performers such as yourself tend to max out at about 5 to 6 hours of actual work.
If you get this right, you can wake up the next day feeling refreshed and ready.
If you screw this up, your fatigue may carry on with compounded interest for several days.
Sleep debt is a real thing and as much of a bad habit it is, weekend sleep ins are saving the health of many career men and women who sleep less than 6 hours per night during the week.
I don't want to encourage this habit however as it tends to reduce how much fun you can fit in on your weekend.
Instead, put your usual night time routine aside and get yourself into bed with a full 8 to 9 hours on the clock.
Do this once and you'll feel amazing, do this 6 to 7 nights per week and you'll feel like a whole new person.

So next time you're running on empty from a big night out, a poor night's sleep or trying to remain productive when feeling sick be sure to put these 5 strategies into place and stay on top of your game.
