Chronic fatigue is more than simply being tired regularly; it can lead to serious health issues. And the lack of sleep often creates stress, both from the sleep deprivation as well as the physical effects, which turns into a cycle of still more problems sleeping. Which worsen the physical health impacts, and so on.
The first step in dealing with such problems is to understand them. Some of them can be blunted by realizing it’s not necessarily immediate bad news just because you had a bit of a toss and turn night. And many causes of insomnia can be treated both with or without your doctor’s help. Minor insomnia sometimes can be dealt with on your own.
Exercise is important to staying healthy and feeling your best, but there can be too much of a good thing. Pushing yourself too hard in the gym can impact your well being. The body needs some time to recover after a particularly strenuous workout, so don’t do back to back days of high intensity activity.
Hydration is also a possible reason you’re not able to sleep consistently. If you’re dehydrated, and caffeine will encourage your body to eliminate water you’ve drunk, that lower fluid level will affect your overall feeling of fatigue. Drink up, and remember that not everything you swallow needs to be caffeinated.
Your chronic fatigue might be something simple. Start with things you can fix yourself. #HealthStatus
