Tiredness is one of the most common complaints among patients. It can affect people of all ages, but it can be especially difficult to manage and treat in older adults.
While fatigue may be a symptom of other conditions, such as depression or chronic pain, it can also be caused by other factors such as sleep disorders or a lack of exercise.
If you’re tired all the time, there are things you can do to help combat your fatigue:
Get medical examinations and checkups
You may not realize it, but the condition of your body can be a major factor in how you feel. It is important that you get a medical assessment to determine if there is something wrong with your body.
Doctors can help you determine what is going on with your body and make sure that you are getting proper care. Talk with your doctor about what symptoms you are experiencing so that they can be detected early on and treated properly for the best results.
This means that you should visit your eye doctor for regular eye exams, and get other exams done like, blood tests, urine tests, and chest X-rays, among other things. Having a complete physical is an important part of maintaining good health as it can help detect any medical conditions early on before they become serious ones.
Talk to your doctor about your fatigue
It’s important to talk about your fatigue with your doctor. If you’re feeling tired, it may be a sign of an underlying problem that needs to be addressed.
If you have persistent fatigue your doctor can help you determine if a medical condition is causing it and whether there are any other treatments available. An adrenal insufficiency test may also be useful in diagnosing the underlying cause of your fatigue.
You can also consider getting IV therapy (Infusion therapy) which is an effective way of getting rid of fatigue without having to go through the side effects of other treatments.
Exercise regularly. It’s the best way to fight tiredness, stress and fatigue. Regular exercise helps your body release endorphins, which are chemicals that make you feel good and happy.
If you want to be more energized, try exercising in the morning when your body is still at rest, instead of at night when it’s already tired.
Eat breakfast every day.
Eating a healthy breakfast lets you start your day energized and ready for anything that comes your way. Try eating something like an omelet or a smoothie made with fresh fruit and whole grains for sustained energy throughout the day.
Eating right helps you stay healthy and active, which in turn helps you feel good about yourself and maintain your energy levels as well as physical appearance.
A balanced diet that includes whole grains, fruits and vegetables, lean protein from fish and beans, nuts and seeds will keep you healthy and give you more energy than any amount of caffeine can provide!
Avoid caffeine, especially late in the day
Caffeine is a stimulant, which means it can make you feel alert and awake for a short period of time. It’s not great for your health in the long term, though, because it increases stress hormones and interferes with sleep.
If you know you’ll need to be awake after 4pm, then avoid coffee and other caffeinated drinks until then.
Use massage and other natural therapies
Massage boosts circulation, which improves your overall health by improving blood flow throughout your body. You can get massages at any time of day – this is one of the reasons why massage therapists are so popular!
If you’re feeling sluggish in the morning or evening, try a little massage before breakfast or after dinner instead.
