For most of them, fatigue is so intense that it keeps them from having a normal, happy, productive life. And since constantly feeling tired is almost always the first symptom of all degenerative diseases, it can be dangerous.
So, if you feel tired all the time, you need this wake up call!
Because even though feeling tired and fatigue all the time is common, it’s still not a natural or necessary condition. If you catch it in time, there are steps you can take to naturally reverse that tired all the time feeling. And, in the process, you’ll end up a much happier, healthier person.
Causes of Fatigue
When feeling tired all the time is not just a natural reaction to physical exertion, poor nutrition, too little sleep or excess stress, it could be due to one of the following common physical or psychological fatigue causes.
- Anemia: Internal or external bleeding and iron or vitamin deficiency anemia can cause feeling tired and fatigue all the time.
- Allergies: Especially an allergy that leads to hay fever or asthma.
- Diabetes: When insulin and blood sugar levels are out of control, an early warning signal of diabetes is feeling tired all the time.
- Depression: Extended grief or depression can cause lethargy.
- Degenerative disease: Most all diseases, including arthritis, cancer and kidney and liver disease have early warning signs of low energy.
- Hypothyroidism: Under or overactive thyroid makes you feel tired.
- Drugs, alcohol and some medications: Regular use of marijuana, cocaine, antihistamines, diuretics, narcotics, alcohol and even blood pressure medications can cause feeling constantly tired or drowsy.
But feeling tired and fatigue all the time is most often caused by poor diet, overwork or getting too little sleep. And these can all be changed.
How to Boost Your Natural Energy
No matter what’s causing your fatigue, once you truly realize you’re sick and tired of feeling tired and fatigue all the time, it’s time to do something about it. Here’s what you can do to naturally boost your energy.
- Practice good stress management. Learning to set priorities, pace yourself and say “no” are all part of good stress management.
- Eat a healthy sugar-free diet. Drinking plenty of water and eating a healthy low glycemic diet, rich in high fiber foods and omega 3 oils, plus quality supplements will improve both your health and energy.
- Get regular moderate exercise. Physical activity helps you sleep and improves energy. Include at least 30 minutes every single day.
- Establish good sleep habits. Keep your bedroom dark, cool and quiet and set up a regular calming bedtime routine.
- Learn techniques to relax. Take some time every day to take care of yourself. Yoga, meditation and breathing exercises can help.
- Manage your schedule. Making a “to do” list and setting priorities helps you focus on one thing at a time and not feel overwhelmed.
- Avoid alcohol, nicotine and drugs. Smoking reduces oxygen and even small quantities of alcohol, drugs and some medications depress your nervous system and make you feel constantly tired.
Now that you’re aware that you’re tired of feeling tired and fatigue all the time, you can start taking better care of your health and well-being. By following these simple steps you can reverse that constantly tired feeling and exchange it for an abundance of natural energy.
