If you're a millennial who frequently finds yourself on the verge of burning out, know that you're not alone. A Google search for 'millennial' and 'fatigue' turns up thousands of stories suggesting that Millenials truly are - the tired generation. One in five persons tells a doctor that they have the energy to do nothing.
Many individuals complain about being tired almost all of the time, but the millennial age appears to be particularly affected. Millennials, who are now between the ages of 23 and 28, frequently report feeling exhausted. According to a broad sociological study, young individuals today are twice as likely to be exhausted all of the time as they were two decades ago.

Millenials want to curl up in a blanket burrito and fall asleep. Fatigue has grown so widespread that it has become a fashion statement. Do you recall being told as a youngster that you needed to go to bed earlier or that you needed to be grounded as a punishment? Those consequences are now the stuff of grown-up fantasy. It's a cruel irony that as adults, we have the freedom to do anything we want yet lack the stamina to accomplish it.
So, what is it about Millenials that makes them so difficult to understand? Here are a few possibilities.
Sleep deprivation may be dangerous. Sleep deprivation not only affects job performance and increases the risk of accidents, but it also poses serious health risks. Lack of good sleep is connected to a number of life-threatening conditions; including obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and an increased risk of stroke. In addition to sexual dysfunction, sleep deprivation has been related to Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive problems later in life.

Effects of Technology
Millennials are the first generation to grow up in a world where technology is always present. They have grown up with a constant connection to the digital world. To put it simply, being linked to the rest of the world through digital technology causes millennials to sleep less as mentioned in the point above. Because kids have continual entertainment and engagement at their fingertips, it may be difficult for them to put it aside and relax. Being continuously linked to technology, on the other hand, might make us feel like we're always on high alert. Because we're inundated with so much information straight through your gadget, it's tough to relax and quiet down.

Some of the primary causes of weariness in Millenials may be traced back to some bad daily behaviors. Reaching for the coffee and sugar, which we believe would give us an energy boost, will eventually backfire. A well-balanced diet has been found to make us feel less fatigued and overall healthier. Exercise is also essential. We may believe that this will simply make us more tired than we already are, but this is not the case. When we exercise, the energy we release generates additional energy. The challenge is to figure out how to put that energy to good use. Allowing our bodies to wind down before the night is vital, as is sticking to a weekly fitness program.
There isn't one cure for every millennial, but recognizing weariness and burnout and pinpointing the reasons we're feeling it in our personal lives is a crucial part of the struggle. We may create customized methods to help us feel less fatigued in the long run. A few lifestyle changes may be all that is required for Millennials to regain their spring in their step. Everyone enjoys a catnap, and down comforters will make our bed a cozy retreat, but we want to make the most of the daylight we have. So put down the snooze button, put down the fifth cup of coffee, and take steps to give yourself greater energy and a good night's sleep.

The author who named the book after her twin sons -- Puhor and Niyor -- is a parent who has seen and heard the tales of ridicule and discrimination suffered by many in India and beyond. She says the book is an artistic illustration for kids that details how different families can live and coexist. Whether it's children with two dads or two moms, children with a single dad or single mom, and even multiracial family units, Borthakur's book teaches love, understanding, and compassion towards unconventional families.
Beyond race, gender, color, and ethnicity which have formed the bases for discrimination since the beginning of time, this book aims to bring to light a largely ignored issue. For so long, single parents have been treated like a taboo without any attempt to understand their situations; no one really cares how or why one's marriage ended but just wants to treat single parents as villains simply for choosing happiness and loving their children.
Homosexual parents, a relatively new family system, is another form that has suffered hate and discrimination for many years. Pritisha emphasizes the need to understand that diversity in people and family is what makes the world beautiful and colourful. 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories' is a firm but compassionate statement against all forms of discrimination on the bases of sexual identity, gender, race, and even differences in background
The Guwahati-born author says, "With this book, I'm not trying to take away the job of parents in forming habits, I simply want to do my part as a parent. It is important that we impart the right values in our kids in a bid to build a better, more inclusive and tolerant global society that is fair to everyone." The author's first attempt at a book was an Assamese poetry 'Anubhav', published in 2010.
Set to be published under the label of Author's Channel, the book is like an adventure; a journey into uncharted territories, untouched subjects and matters long ignored. In her words. "The book takes a critical stand in defense of people in society who have had to undergo severe emotional torture for no cause of theirs. It is a terrible conception to think such people any less of a human just for being different," says publisher Aruna Naidu. By September 30, this title, priced at Rs 299, will be available online and in offline bookstores. (IANS/ MBI)
Rajesh U Pandya, Managing Director, KAI India, gives easy and completely doable tips to follow at home:
* Refrain from harsh soaps: You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you're washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand's skin dry and scaly.
