Many of us feel that we are living life on a treadmill, with so many things to juggle, continuously multi-tasking and having no real down time. Even when we do have a few moments, we may spend them catching up. Catching up on emails, social media, phone calls and television programmes to name a few.
We may feel tired a lot of the time, but use props to help us get through the day such as caffeine, sugary snacks, smoking, and alcohol. These just make matters worse and prolong the fatigue cycle. There is only so much of this type of strain a mind and body can take before something gives way under the pressure. This is when illnesses may appear such as anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, headaches, hypertension, and heart problems.
