Do you feel like you are constantly tired, even when you have just woken up? Fatigue can strike at any time throughout the day and is actually recognised by doctors as one of the most common health complaints. The good news is that there are many ways you can give yourself a boost, feel more refreshed and help yourself get through the day without nodding off.
Get plenty of sleep
We often hear how important it is to get a good night’s sleep. For many, that’s easier said than done. If you struggle to fall asleep or you wake often during the night, try some of these helpful tips:
– Stick to a regular sleep schedule and aim for seven to eight hours of sleep a night.
– Try to ban all screens from the bedroom, including mobile phones, tablets and the TV.
– Banish all light from your room as much as possible. Use an eye mask if you have one.
– Treat yourself to a good quality mattress, pillows and quilt.
Take a look at your diet
If you find you feel tired immediately after lunch or dinner, try to avoid large meals and instead opt for smaller healthy meals and snacks throughout the day. This is great for regulating blood sugar and energy and will help you to avoid those spikes and crashes that can have you feeling so tired. Cutting out refined foods such as white flour and sugars from your diet can also be a big help. Opt instead for fruit, nuts and complex carbs such as oats, quinoa and sweet potatoes. To give your body and immune system an extra boost, add a daily multivitamin to your morning routine.
But wait, won’t that make me more tired? Actually, people who spend more time sitting down tend to feel more tired than people who are more active. Short walks, a gym session or taking the stairs instead of the lift could all help to make you feel more energised during the day. Here’s an interesting fact – studies show that taking a walk for 10 minutes can give you the same energised feeling as eating a chocolate bar. You’ll also burn calories and get plenty of fresh air.
Fatigue can also be caused by dehydration, so if you’re not drinking enough, this could be the reason you’re feeling so tired. Try to drink more water and keep coffee and other caffeinated drinks to a minimum. There are actually mobile phone apps now that can remind you when to grab some water.
