Fatigue is a feeling of exhaustion or tiredness, and may in some cases, have a physical or mental cause (seek medical consultation in this case). Normal causes of fatigue include physical exertion, lack of sleep, jet lag, boredom and low Mood.
With a few simple changes to our everyday lifestyles we can significantly improve the effects of fatigue. The first and most obvious change is to ensure a good night's sleep, and we can do this by maintaining a regular sleep pattern (even getting up at the same time at weekends). Regular exercise not only helps shed those extra pounds but suprisingly provides the Body with a boost of Energy. And those who get at least thirty minutes of aerobic exercise most days of the week, tend to sleep better too. Limiting ones consumption of alcohol and caffeinated Drinks can also have a positive effect on fatigue, while sipping on Water all day long helps to avoid dehydration (another cause of fatigue). Eating more high-fibre Foods helps stabilize Blood Sugar, while spinach contains a rich source of Vitamin B and Potassium, which are both important for energy metabolism.
