Tips To Help A Brain Injury Survivor Fight Fatigue

In this article I’m going to give you a few of my tricks to fight fatigue as a brain injury Survivor.  Now, all of these may not work for you but what I’ve found is that it’s best to go by trial and error to find the things that work for your body and your disability, post brain injury.  For myself, I have left side paralysis and double vision which causes things like headaches, dizziness, soreness, numbness and these are a few tricks that help me fight these symptoms and fatigue. 

 I’m not a doctor, just a fellow brain injury survivor going on 20 years of fighting the good fight. Here we go!

Sleep wearing a blindfold, sleep mask or something that covers your eyes during the night.  When I sleep with a blindfold I wake up far more relaxed and with more energy.  

Try to sleep wearing earplugs –  I know what you’re thinking, this is crazy but when I first tried it out I slept incredible. And I don’t think it was because of the silence, I believe it was due to the earplugs helping calm my head.  If you’re like me,  I have a lot of discomfort with my head due to my brain injury and ear plugs help to relax my head, it’s amazing.

I hope the next time you’re feeling fatigued or anxious one of these tips will work for you. If so, let me know!
