Fatigue is a general symptom of tiredness that may vary from person to person. One might sleep for eight hours and wake up almost as tired as when they went to bed. Another may find it so difficult to get to sleep or stay asleep that they only sleep for a few hours a night. If your fatigue is caused by insomnia, you can devote some time to making your bedroom more conducive to sleep. Create a calm and pleasant atmosphere and use your bedroom only for sleep. Do not read or watch TV in your bedroom. It is a good idea to refrain from eating or drinking coffee or alcoholic beverages for four hours before your bedtime. It is not advisable to do any exercise for at least two hours before your bedtime. Try to set a regular hour to go to bed each night.
If you lie awake for more than 30 minutes, get up and have a glass of warm milk or chamomile tea. Take a warm bath scented with lavender to induce sleep.
If you are able to sleep but wake up tired, do not reach for coffee and a sweet roll or doughnut in the morning. Have a cup of herbal tea made with Siberian ginseng root, astragalus root and licorice root and eat a high protein, low-fat breakfast. At coffee break time, have a cup of green tea with ginger root and a piece of cheese and some fruit instead of coffee and something sweet.
Moderate exercise can help relieve symptoms of fatigue. If you tend to feel sleepy after lunch, try eating a low-fat and high protein lunch with plenty of fruit and vegetables. After lunch take a short walk outside rather than having dessert. You may be surprised to find yourself feeling less fatigue and more energy.
Constant chronic fatigue when your diet is healthy, you get adequate sleep and you are not extremely stressed may indicate an underlying medical condition that should be discussed with your doctor. If you are under stress, your energy level may be affected temporarily.
