it definitely wont hurt if you are a man to read this article while not everything that is written relevant to you some things will.
The effects of constant fatigue — it’s more than being tired
The key is not to dismiss your mild symptoms of fatigue when you first notice them. Instead, take the first step and figure out the cause of your fatigue.
What are common underlying causes of fatigue?
I always pay close attention when any woman tells me she’s exhausted — even if it’s her only symptom. Fatigue is debilitating and discouraging because it can interfere with every aspect of your life — even the fun things.SS Close Up Mature Serious Woman
For women, fatigue is often related to an underlying issue in the endocrine system. What’s more, one endocrine imbalance may be affected by another — such as over stressed adrenal glands intensifying symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
There may be other possible causes contributing to fatigue as well, including: chronic inflammation, food allergies and chemical sensitivities, Lyme disease or the other factors. And fatigue can also result from the combination of several of these factors. Working with a functional medicine practitioner can help you get to the root of your fatigue.
What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is distinct from the types of fatigue we discuss here. CFS refers to severe, continued tiredness that is not relieved by rest and does not appear to be directly caused by other medical conditions. For more information, read our article, “Chronic Fatigue – Get Your Energy Back!” and our many other articles in our Insomnia and Fatigue section. read more hear……..
Now you know some of the cause for tiredness and fatigue Now you can learn about ways to boost your energy.
For most of us, feeling fatigued, groggy and a bit sniffle-y, no matter what time of the year it is, has virtually become a way of life. Overwhelmed with stress and responsibilities, we listlessly soldier on, fighting brain fog and exhaustion with shots of caffeine and spoonfuls of sugar to prop ourselves up just long enough to make it through the day. Then, when it’s time for lights-out, we’re too jacked-up to sleep. Small wonder so many of us are physically, emotionally and mentally spent!
The good news is that you don’t have to live like this. Simply by living a little smarter and making a few health-supporting choices every day, you can banish fatigue from your life and live it the way you were born to – with vibrancy and energy!
Here are 10 health-enhancing ways to fight fatigue and win, morning, noon and night:
CREATE THAT MORNING ENERGY BURST
1) Say good morning to your body.
Even if you usually rise in the dark, greet the day with a few classic yoga sun salutations or gentle stretches to get the blood pumping, easing your body into the day. Still tense and achy from yesterday? Then try my 2-step release and stretch moves first thing in the morning to bust tension, open blocked energy pathways, reduce pain and energize you for the day. Start with the Neck and Shoulder Release with tennis balls. Follow this with the Wall Stretch. These simple moves will stretch your shoulders, legs and back, as you stimulate muscle tissue and blood flow throughout the body, waking it and energizing it without artificial stimulants.
2) Boost body and brain with the perfect breakfast.
In the morning, protein and fat are essential for energy, and a large, healthy breakfast of the right foods is exactly what your body needs. And what is the perfect breakfast? The morning smoothie, because it’s quick to prepare, easily digested and can be packed with the healthy fats, proteins, nutrients and phytonutrients you need to fuel your day. My favorite ingredient for boosting energy naturally is whey protein. These two whey protein-based smoothies, the Green Mojito and the Blueberry Avocado are creamy, satisfying and delicious. If you don’t want to use whey, try these equally delicious pea protein-based smoothies, the Coconut Bliss and the Chocolate Love.
3) Recharge your batteries with an adaptogen.
Try adding an adaptogen formula to your morning routine – but consult your doctor first to check for allergies or possible interactions with any medications you may be on. For centuries, Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine have used adaptogen botanicals as energizing herbal tonics to naturally support the body’s ability to cope with anxiety, fatigue and the aging process. They also rejuvenate and tone the adrenal system, which in turn promotes the healthy regulation of cortisol, the “stress hormone”. Armed with the unique ability to “adapt” their function to your body’s specific needs, Panax ginseng, Ashwagandha and Rhodiola are my favorite adaptogens. In fact, I’m such a fan of their rejuvenating, re-energizing effects, I’ve combined all three into my fatigue-fighting Be Well Adaptogen formula.
4) Got greens?
When you’re fatigued, what you’re eating makes a massive difference in how quickly your body will recover its strength. To super-charge your diet and energy reserves, you can’t beat “green drinks.” Why? Because they deliver nourishing, high-octane, drinkable doses of phytonutrients, antioxidants and digestive enzymes to every system in the body, quickly, easily and efficiently. The effects? Nothing short of wonderful: Concentrated green powdered drinks boost immunity, aid digestion, sustain energy, promote mental clarity and enhance overall well-being. Add powdered greens to smoothies or just add water and swig ‘em on the way to work – you’ll arrive energized, alert and naturally powered-up, instead of amped and jittery from caffeine. I have made it convenient and delicious for people on the go with my single serving packets of Be Well Greens. It’s a simple and transportable way to keep your energy engine humming.
SUSTAINING DAYTIME ENERGY
5) Put the mind and body breaks on.
You’re tied up on back-to-back conference calls. The e-mails are arriving faster than jets into O’Hare. Multiple deadlines loom large and energy is being sucked out of your mind and body at warp speed. Believe it or not, now is an excellent time to s-l-o-w i-t d-o-w-n. Combat the mayhem around you and re-energize naturally by tuning in to some relaxing music for a few minutes. Giving yourself a musical time-out will help calm your body and brain with gentle, soothing rhythms that will slow down your heart rate and breathing to healthier levels. The result? A feeling of well being in just minutes, plus a clearer mind and calmer body. My go-to, slow-it-down favorite tunes include anything by reggae genius Bob Marley or brain wave music master, Jonathan Goldman. No time or space for music, try some breathing exercises. more….
