The big Yawn after the Winter

The spring has arrived: The days are getting longer and temperatures milder, sometimes almost early summer. With the changing of the seasons many people feel, however, is a bit of a Yawn. What caused the spring to fatigue and markets – an Overview:

What is spring fatigue?

in Most cases, the big spring shows itself to yawn, when there were some days with warmer temperatures. Around a quarter of the population feels, according to the Marburg sleep physician, Werner Cassel, the spring fatigue. Many feel listless and tired. Others suffer from circulatory problems, mood swings, headaches, lack of concentration, irritability, or insomnia. For most, this is overcome after a good two weeks.

What are the causes?

There are several reasons for this. For one, people in the cold Season, eat more fats and get less of the vitamins and trace elements such as Vitamin D, Magnesium and zinc. The memory for activities is thus empty. With the change of temperature wide, also, the blood vessels and the blood pressure drops, causing fatigue, or circulatory problems. The DAK, according to people who already have low blood pressure complain more often about fatigue in the spring. Also wetterfühlige people and the Elderly are more sensitive.

Cassel, according to the man in the Winter, sleeping on average 20 to 45 minutes longer. The changes with the spring, because it is already in the evening longer bright, the people are again active, and from daylight in the morning, sometimes before the alarm clock ringing will be brought out of the sleep.

What role do hormones play?

After the dark winter months, the concentration of the so-called sleep hormone Melatonin in the blood is particularly high. The "feel-Good neurotransmitter" Serotonin, whose memory, however, is relatively empty, takes for its Genesis the light of day, the activated hormone gland in the brain.

With the increase of serotonin in the body reduces at the same time the production of Melatonin. Because this is not all regulated in the spring, the System is messed up. The result is a battle of hormones – all the effort is on, and the body requires at the most inopportune times to take a breather.

What helps against the spring fatigue?

light is "the best therapy" against the spring fatigue, and the Mini-"Jet Lag" due to the time change, says Sleep doctor Cassel. Light stimulates the production of Serotonin and Vitamin D, and stops during the day, the production of the sleep hormone Melatonin. Therefore, experts advise to as much movement as possible in the Outdoors.

If it goes, so with the bike to work and the break out move. A mere the office, people should use instead of the Elevator, the stairs. Hot and cold showers or sauna visits to get the circulation in addition.

What is the role of the diet?

nutrition experts recommend a lot of cereals and cereal products, whole grains, potatoes, legumes, and especially a lot of fruits and vegetables. In some fruits such as bananas, Apples and pineapple and even the mood Serotonin is included in traces.
