Being tired occasionally is of course quite normal, but if you feel tired almost every day, it can be tough. The best thing you can do is to try to get at the cause of the fatigue and then do something about it.
Here are five different tips you can try to combat fatigue.
1 A lot of people feel tired during the dark season. Whether you suffer from depression or not, try to be out as much as possible in the sun, or at least out in the daylight.
If you live in the darker parts of the planet, you can buy a special light that simulates daylight. Here are some of the health benefits of sunlight.
2 Take breaks. You may find that you get more energy if you allow yourself to take regular breaks, whether you are at the computer, or at work. It does not need be long periods of time. If you are at work, go for a walk for 10 minutes. If you are at home at the computer, walk around a bit, get some fresh air.
This is especially important if you are doing repetitive things, which can be very tiring. Exercise, rest and fresh air can do wonders.
3 Exercise – It can sometimes feel wrong to try and exercise when you are tired, but it is an excellent way to counter the feeling of fatigue. Even if you dont workout, just go for a long walk.
You often sleep better when you have exercised, and the body also becomes stronger. You may not see the difference in one day, but after a while you tend to notice that you get more energy in your daily life.
4 Good nutrition helps you feel better and gives you more energy. Eat a balanced diet with plenty of raw vegetables and fruit. But it is also important to take the time to eat in peace, to really enjoy the food. Slow that heart rate down. Ease the stress.
5 Create a good atmosphere for sleeping. A bedroom should be dark and cool, without TV and other distractions. Ideally, one should go to bed and getting up at the same time each day. This helps letting your body know when it is time to sleep, and time to get up. Getting a good nights sleep can mean wonders for your health, dont push yourself and get up early if you dont have to.
