Tired in the morning?

Do you experience regular mid-afternoon slumps? You could be suffering from chronic fatigue – a common problem, which could have a myriad of causes.

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.
