In Japan, the Golden Week is over and everyone will get back to work as usual from today.
On the way to my workplace, I saw some people who were yawning.
It seems that they returned from vacation feeling exhausted... or they had to work through the vacation.
It's such beautiful weather, but I'm under the weather...
Why do people get sleepy and feel tired in springtime?
The doctors say that lack of sun light during the winter and the low physical activity are some of the factors for the development of spring fatigue. The sudden rise of temperatures causes our body to start cooling, vessels dilating, which increases the flow of blood in the organs and consequently causes lower blood pressure and increased metabolism. All this exhausts the body and we go into the state of fatigue.
I'm not the only one who feel tired in springtime!
Now I understand how my body works when the seasons are changing.
As the weather getting better, we have more opportunities to go out.
However, it seems that we are putting a burden on the body to adapt to climate change.
It is called "spring fatigue" because the symptoms are similar to summer fatigue and occur in spring. There are also data that more than half of people feel spring fatigue in March and April.
During this period, there is a difference in temperatures like summer and winter.
It's not surprising that our body gets tired.
