Do you feel tired all the time? Many people do. And for at least 20% of Americans this constant, excessive tiredness is so intense that it interferes with them having a normal, active, happy life.
And although feeling constantly tired is common, it's neither natural nor necessary.
So if excessive tiredness makes you want to roll over in bed, hit the snooze bar and pull the covers up over your head, it’s time we had a little talk about always feeling tired. Why? Because feeling tired all the time is the first symptom of all degenerative diseases. It's your wake up call!
The Main Causes of Fatigue
When feeling tired all the time is not just a reaction to too much physical exertion, a poor diet or too little sleep, it could be a symptom of one of the following physical or psychological factors.
- Anemia, from iron or vitamin deficiency, internal or external bleeding, kidney failure, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer or some other degenerative disease, causes tiredness.
- Diabetes onset comes with an early warning signal of feeling tired all the time, indicating that a person's insulin production and blood sugar levels are out of control.
- Depression, grief or too much emotional stress can cause lack of energy, sleeplessness and feelings of lethargy and constant tiredness.
- Hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid) makes you feel tired with muscle fatigue.
- Degenerative diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, heart disease and cancer all come with early signals of low energy and excessive tiredness.
- Regular use of alcohol, drugs or medications, like antihistamines, diuretics, sleeping pills, blood pressure medications or illegal drugs, such as cocaine, can cause you to feel tired and drowsy.
Tap into Your Natural Energy
Whether the causes of fatigue are serious or not, these simple solutions to feeling tired all the time can help. So get your head out from under the covers and start following these guidelines.
- Practice stress management. Set priorities, pace yourself, learn to say "no" and take time each day to simply relax. These are all part of good stress management.
- Avoid alcohol and drugs. Even small amounts of alcohol, drugs and certain medications can depress your central nervous system and make you feel tired for hours.
- Establish good sleep habits. Learn how to get a good night's sleep with a regular routine. And avoid any activities around bedtime that could keep you awake.
- Exercise moderately. It's vitally important to give regular physical activity a high priority and include at lest 30 minutes of moderate exercise every single day
- Eat a healthy sugar-free diet. Feeling tired is usually the result of poor nutrition. A healthy low glycemic diet, high in good omega 3 fish oil, low in bad fat and rich in nutritious high fiber foods will improve both your energy and your health.
A well-nourished body generally has more than enough buoyant, vibrant energy and vitality. If you want to look and feel your absolute best, with an abundance of natural energy, follow the guidelines above and find out why you need nutritional health supplements.
