Do you feel tired day to day when you know you need to take action and get things done? This can be for a variety of reasons and may be caused by a number of factors. To help you, in this video we look at 5 ways to stop you feeling tired all the time… 1. Exercise – Exercise can have phenomenal benefits all round and despite the fact that exercise can and should be tiring, it can actually help to boost energy levels overall – It reduces fatigue as it releases endorphins to naturally help boost your energy levels, meaning once the initial tiredness of the activity has past, you’ll feel more energetic – Try to do at least 2 hours of moderate exercise each week, preferably 30 minutes on a daily basis to help gain the benefits of exercise – A 2008 study has shown that over a period of six weeks, adults that exercised regularly saw an improvement in energy levels 2. Eat Well – They say you are what you eat, and this is incredibly true, if you eat unhealthy food that lacks nutrition, you will feel tired, lazy and without energy – If you eat a well balanced diet, you will see a significant boost in your natural energy levels, so ensure you are getting enough vitamins and nutrients from your regular diet – By pairing unrefined carbs with protein, you’ll find you will maintain sustained energy levels, and when you include plenty of fiber and anti-inflammatory foods, that will help you feel better overall – Following a balanced diet also promotes healthy digestion, which helps to clear and cleanse your body, and as research has linked irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) to chronic fatigue, it can help you feel significantly better 3.
Drink More Water – It might not come as a shock that without the majority of our bodies made up of water, we need to keep hydrated to avoid feeling tiredness – Dehydration can lead to low energy levels and therefore have a negative impact on your sleep by drying out your mouth and nasal passages, leading to snoring, hoarseness and cramps – Obviously, sleep is critical to prevent tiredness and lack of sleep or poor sleep will contribute significantly to how energetic you feel – In a study in 2014, it was found that increasing water intake in people who don’t usually drink enough water had beneficial effects on energy, whereas people who decreased their water intake had fewer feelings of calmness, satisfaction and positive emotions 4. Reduce Stress – Stress can massively impact your mental and physical energy, leading to you feeling more tiredness and becoming significantly less active as a result – Cortisol, the stress hormone, can have a significant effect on sleep patterns, bodily systems and overall health, leading to you not only feeling more tired, but having significantly more issues overall – How you reduce stress can vary, but practicing breathing techniques, mindfulness and meditation have all shown to be beneficial when combating stress – The key is to do what’s necessary to reduce stress in your life, something that will help you feel much more energetic 5.
See a Doctor – Sometimes chronic fatigue and tiredness is a symptom of an underlying health issue that needs looking into and resolving to prevent it becoming more serious – Therefore, if you still feel tired after looking after your wellbeing, it’s important to seek professional medical help from your doctor – They can help diagnose potential issues such as sleep apnea, heart disease, diabetes or liver or kidney conditions to name just a few – So look after yourself, do things to help you feel more energetic and follow up by using that energy in productive and beneficial ways Do you follow any of these tips?
