Our expert says:
Difficult one - I wonder whether your diet is providing enough energy to begin with. That's something work checking out with a dietician, because as things stand, you're tired without even doing exercise, and that means that your habitual diet is not providing energy, or you're deficient in some respect - perhaps that could be tested for?
On the side of exercise, you're not going to find energy for exercise until you sort out the energy without it. There is this adage that if you exercise, you'll have more energy, but I'm not sure that applies here. In terms of time, it's really important that you prioritize exercise. I know this will sound flippant, but very few people just find that they have time to exercise - it has to be made, created, and so you need to create the time. That requires some time management, restructuring of your day, and so forth, but it's important if you are serious about making exercise stick. I know it sounds impossible, but very few people do it any other way.
So my advice - check the diet, and especially the quantity of food you're eating, because you can eat the right types of foods, but if the amounts are not correct, then you're struggling anyway. Then consider that you might be deficient as a result of diet, either in energy or other nutrients. That could well take care of it. If not, then it might pay to see a doctor and just have tests, because there are conditions where excessive fatigue is the symptom.
