Simple strategies to help fight fatigue.
There’s a lot that happens in a day between work, home and life in general.
I’m a pretty active person between working, walking the dogs three miles a day, taking care of the horses, and everything that I do around the house.
I actually get up at 3:30am and don’t go to sleep until about 9pm….sometimes a little later if I am reading a good book!
When you are tired, your body is saying that it needs to heal. A lot of healing happens while you sleep.
When I was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2017, I was sleeping much more than normal. I could only stay awake for a couple hours at a time.
There were a few things that helped with the healing process and also gave me more energy, so that I could go back to doing the things that I love to do.
- Taking B complex vitamins. B vitamins provide a source of fuel for your body. You can find them in several different forms..
- Eating more fruits and veggies (and less sugary snacks).
- Drinking a greens powder. There are many different brands to choose from. You can check out the one that I like to use here.
- Stop relying on coffee. It took a little bit for me to get used to not drinking as much. I found that my stomach was upset less and that I didn’t have the afternoon crashes as much. Here’s what I replaced coffee with instead.
- Do something relaxing before you go to sleep. This will allow your mind to slow down so you can sleep better.
- Breathing exercises. I found these helpful, especially when combined with some movement.
It’s OK to be tired sometimes.
Remember to listen to your body when it says that it needs something.
The better you take care of it now, the better things will be in the future.
Do some reflection. What small changes can you add to your routine in order to see the results that you want in your health?
I find that when I feel my self getting more tired than normal, it helps for me to look back at what I have been doing and even eating through the week. Usually I will see a pattern that I keep in the back of my mind.
Over time you will become more aware about how you feel and be able to use that as a gauge for yourself.
Hope this helps.
