Overworked and exhausted? 5 reasons your mental health may be suffering

As the cost-of-living rises, so do our work loads and stress levels, which in turn can drastically affect our mental health.

With many focusing on increasing their workload to keep up with the growing demands and pressures of the economy, there has been a significant rise in concerning health issues.

Healthista spoke to Jess Hillard, Nutritionist from leading sports nutrition brand Warrior, who reveals the surprising signs that could be contributing to poor mental health.

#1 Longer Working Hours

To compensate for the rise in the cost of living, many are taking on extra jobs and working longer hours. These long working hours can massively aggravate anxiety, depression, and eventual burnout.

Symptoms of overworking can be seen through weight fluctuations, constant fatigue, lack of sleep and frequently feeling run down which all in turn lead towards a weakened immune system.

The health issues that coincide with overworking are extensive and can escalate into serious problems rapidly. Studies have shown that those who work 55 to 65+ hours per week have considerably worse mental health when compared to those who work less than 40 hours per week.

Studies also found that those who overwork, are at a greater risk of cardiovascular disease (e.g. type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure). This is mostly due to eating habits, stress, relying on alcohol, lack of sleep and physical activity, all of which can be triggered by the stress of overworking.

To help keep our overall health in check and avoid an eventual burnout we really should be limiting our working hours to around 40 hours per week.

#2 Poor Diet Choices

As well as over doing it when it comes to work, there is a strong link between what we eat and our mental health. Our diet plays a huge role in our mental wellbeing. This is due to our eating times, habits, as well as micro and macro nutrients that come with diet.

A meta-analysis done across ten different countries showed that a diet with high intake of fruit, vegetables, fish, whole grains, olive oil and low-fat dairy, was associated with a decreased risk of depression.

Not only this but research has also shown that individuals with a high intake of ‘unhealthy foods’ (high in saturated fats, low fibre, little fruit and veg), with a lower nutrient-density, are associated with smaller left hippocampal volume.

This is the area of the brain that is connected to stress, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease. The reasoning to why these foods decrease the size of this area of the brain are not yet clear.

#3 Deficient in Protein

Something which often gets overlooked when identifying the reasons why someone’s mental health might be suffering is their protein intake.

Protein intake has been seen to link to high levels of dopamine, which control mood regulation within the brain. Protein consists of amino acids which help the body to rebuild muscle fibres. Some amino acids cannot be produced naturally in the body, so we need to supplement them through food or vitamins.

#4 Insomnia

Despite often feeling tired throughout the day, many highly stressed people have difficulty getting off to sleep or staying asleep through the night, which can have a huge impact on mental health.

Getting a second wind of energy just as you should be going to bed is a classic sign that our adrenal glands (which control are stress response) are struggling.

Stress hormones can cause hyperarousal, upsetting the balance between sleep and wakefulness. This creates a vicious cycle, as stressful situations are much more difficult to cope with when you are tired, leading to further stress.

#5 Not Getting the Right Nutrients

A nutrient that greatly affects brain health, corresponding with mental health, is omega 3. This is found in foods such as oily fish, flaxseed, walnuts, olive oil.

Cell signaling and structure of cell membranes within the brain are changed by omega-3 fatty acids which can act as an antidepressant.

Research within this area is growing through time and is showing positive effects with using omega-3 fatty acids to help treat depression and bipolar related depression too.

It is worth noting that if you do not eat oily fish two to three times per week or taking on high levels of plant-based sources in the form of flaxseed, olive oils etc, it may be worth supplementing or even better, trying to increase these whole food forms into your diet more often.

Growing Your Own Vegetables

As summer comes to an end, many vegetable gardeners are busy reaping what they’ve sown and harvesting the fruits of their labors. Growing your own vegetables has health, nutritional, and environmental benefits, says University of Illinois Extension Educator Nicole Flowers-Kimmerle.

The health benefits are exponential with the combination of nutrients, sunshine, and exercise gained through gardening. Walking, bending, lifting, and pulling movements that naturally happen in the garden fit into the moderate excise category that can increase your body’s immune system function.

Certain vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, and brussels sprouts, produce a disease-fighting compound called sulfurane after being cut. Colorful vegetables provide antioxidants such as lycopene and beta carotene. Eating a diverse group of vegetables ensures balanced nutrition.  

“Different varieties of vegetables have different flavors,” Flowers-Kimmerle says. “Growing your own vegetables from seed allows you to choose varieties for your garden to suit your tastes.”

The flavor is also based on biochemical changes that happen to the produce once it is harvested. “The sugar in sweet corn kernels starts converting to starch as soon as the ear is harvested,” Flowers-Kimmerle says. “Cook sweet corn as soon as you can for the sweetest flavor.”

Harvest timing can also affect the flavor of a vegetable. Harvesting vegetables at their peak ensures maximum flavor. Locally grown vegetables benefit the environment by reducing carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels to transport grocery store produce.

“No plastic packaging is required when you harvest vegetables straight from the garden, which also reduces fossil fuel inputs,” Flowers-Kimmerle says. Pesticide and other chemical inputs tend to be lower in small, well-tended gardens than even small farms.

When vegetable gardeners use kitchen and yard waste as compost, they keep it out of landfills and create their own soil amendment to increase the garden’s productivity.

These health and environmental benefits can last even longer with cool weather plantings for a late fall harvest. Vegetables that grow well in cool weather, such as leaf lettuce, radish, spinach, and turnips, can be planted throughout Fall.

Do You Take Vitamin D and Have High Blood Pressure? Read on.

“Upping your vitamin intake is a great way to get more valuable nutrients into your diet, boosting immunity, gut health, and energy,” nutritionist Rebekah Lamb stated. “Vitamins have a whole host of benefits, and can improve the health of your hair, skin, and nails.” Eating a well-balanced, healthy diet is key in getting the nutrients required by your body.

Yet, in the modern day, lives can feel super busy, which could result in a sub-par diet.

This is where supplements come in handy, but “there is such a thing as too many vitamins”.

Lamb cautioned: “When a person greatly exceeds their recommended daily intake of vitamins over a sustained period of time, they could suffer a vitamin overdose.”

Take, for instance, vitamin D, which “can lead to abnormally high levels of calcium in your blood”.

Lamb warned that overdosing on vitamin D could lead to “high blood pressure [and] kidney stones”.

High blood pressure

An ideal blood pressure reading should be between 90/60mmHg to 120/80mmHg, the NHS says.

If you are below the age of 80 and your blood pressure exceeds 120/80mmHg, then you are on your way to life-threatening conditions.

High blood pressure (specified as above 140/90mmHg) increases the likelihood of a person having a stroke or heart attack.

The condition also hikes your risk of:

  • Heart disease
  • Heart failure
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • Aortic aneurysms
  • Kidney disease
  • Vascular dementia.

“Around a third of adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it,” the NHS adds.

This is because the condition is mostly symptomless; you must have your blood pressure tested for an accurate reading.

If you are told you have high blood pressure, you will need to incorporate more exercise into your daily life and cut down on fatty foods (and perhaps regulate your vitamin D usage).

WAYS TO IMPROVE SOIL DRAINAGE IN YOUR GARDEN

You can amend your soil to improve its drainage by adding organic material, such as compost, manure, or shredded leaves. This technique will work whether your soil has poor drainage or very good drainage. It works by increasing the number of soil aggregates, which are groups of soil particles with lots of space between them for oxygen or water. Organic materials will work better and add more nutrition than other substances, like sand or perlite.

To amend your soil with compost, start by spreading a layer of compost two to four inches thick. Work the compost into the soil down to the top six inches to one foot by hand with a garden fork or a spade, or you can use a tiller. (Using a tiller too often will actually impair soil drainage by breaking up soil aggregates.)

Organic materials like compost are recommended for amending clay soils. You will often see references to amending clay soil with sand, but we do not recommend it. Amending clay soil with sand only works at a ratio much higher than is practical for most gardeners; otherwise, it creates a mixture similar to concrete.

  • An alternative to soil amendment is the use of green manures or cover crops. These crops are planted in the fall and killed in early spring before they go to seed, either by mowing or by glyphosate. The green manure provides nutrition and aeration to the soil. For more information, check out our article How to Use Cover Crops with a Home Garden.
  • If you’re growing just a couple of different types of plants in areas where soil drainage is a problem, try adding more diversity with new plants. As a result, you’ll have a more diverse range of microbes in the soil, which contributes to soil health.
  • Break up soil manually using spading, trenching, or aeration techniques. Although tilling too frequently can cause soil to become compacted, you can till once to improve aeration, though it will disturb your earthworm population. Major problems with tilling come when people overtill their soil.
  • To keep soil healthy, you should have plants growing there when the weather is cool as well as when it is warm. The roots of dormant plants are part of an ecosystem that contributes to the health of beneficial microbes in the soil.
  • Soil particles are pressed together if compacted, impairing the healthy movement of oxygen and water through the soil. Avoid activities that cause soil compaction, including walking or driving on the soil or working in it while it is wet. Tilling your soil too frequently can also cause soil compaction. In general, you want to avoid interfering with the soil in any way so that natural processes like earthworm burrows and the spaces between soil aggregates can remain untouched. Disturb the soil as infrequently as you can.
  • Redirecting water away from your garden can reduce the amount of water that comes into contact with your plants’ root zone. Different techniques can change the elevation in your garden to prevent it being a low-lying area. If your property is at a downspout or in a depression, redirecting water may be the solution for you.
  • Hilling is traditionally used with potato plants, but you can apply it in areas with poor drainage no matter what you’re growing. Hilling involves creating a small hill (also called a berm) around each plant in the area with poor drainage. Hilling is really a method of redirecting water away from your plants, as some of it will soak into the hill and the rest will run off the sides away from the plants’ root zones.
  • Installing a drain is another way to redirect water to improve soil drainage. You can use a French drain, the most common type of underground drain. A French drain is basically a ditch filled with gravel and covered with soil. You can also use subsurface tile drains, which are sections of perforated pipe laid 12 to 18 inches deep. Vertical drains can be used where you are planting trees or shrubs. They consist of three-foot to five-foot holes that have a diameter between 4 inches and 6 inches, dug next to the roots with an auger or post hole digger. These holes are filled with gravel, which maintains the structure of the soil while still allowing water to filter down and away from the root zone of your plants.

You don’t have to implement all of the tips we’ve provided here. Just choose a few that fit into your garden and your lifestyle. Before you know it, you’ll be seeing the signs of healthy soil, including flourishing plant life, a busy population of ants, worms, and beetles in the top six inches of soil, and a loose, deep soil texture that crumbles when moist. Your plants will look their best when they’re growing in healthy soil that offers plenty of drainage.
