Simple solutions for tiredness

Do you wake up tired in the morning? Are you too exhausted after work to go to the gym?


Do you wake up tired in the morning? Are you too exhausted after work to go to the gym? Do you experience regular mid-afternoon slumps? You could be suffering from chronic fatigue – a common problem, which could have a myriad of causes.

Take action:
Be aware of the common causes of chronic fatigue – maybe the solution is a lot simpler than you think: lack of sleep is often the primary cause – make sure that you are getting sufficient sleep to suit your lifestyle and life stage; lack of exercise could be at the root of your problem – work out or play sport three to four times a week; many different physical and mental illnesses can make you feel tired – consult your doctor and specifically ask him/her to investigate thyroid function; diet can play a major role in combating tiredness – the first step is to make sure that your diet is balanced.
