Are you always tired? Do you often go through your day feeling lethargic, sluggish, or sleepy even after resting for a full night? While at times, it is reasonable to feel tired during the day, constant symptoms of day time fatigue could be associated with your lifestyle, including your sleep, diet and exercise. Making some changes in your daily routine could be all you need to do to feel more alert. That extra cup of coffee might be a quick fix, but it’s not all you need. So, if you find yourself fatigued every morning you wake up, here are various natural remedies you can use to help fight fatigue.

Get Enough Sleep

Poor sleep quality could be what’s contributing significantly to exhaustion. Most of us don’t get enough sleep for various reasons, while some people might suffer from sleep apnea, a good number get poor sleep as a result of bad sleeping habits. To have our bodies function correctly, most of us need at least eight hours of good-quality sleep. If you spend several sleepless nights, your brain begins to fog and that results in poor concentration and feeling down.

Stay Hydrated

Dehydration is a prime cause of fatigue. Not drinking enough water could be the reason you are always tired. Whether you are working a desk job, or are out in the field, your body needs water to function properly. So, drink water throughout your day.

Eat the Right Food

Start your day with a dense breakfast comprised of complex carbohydrates and fiber to fuel the body. Avoid simple sugars just because they are convenient. They cause your blood sugar to spike immediately but won’t stay in the body for long. Complex sugars, on the other hand, are broken down slowly providing you with energy at intervals.

Do Regular Physical Exercise

Exercise boosts your endorphins that trigger a positive feeling in your body. Physical activity increases your body’s energy levels and reduces fatigue. Physical activity also stimulates your blood circulation and helps you sleep more soundly.

Give Yourself a Break

Give yourself a few minutes, go outside and see how fresh air lightens your mood, brightens your body, and soul. Try stretching to relieve your joints from the stress; it can help you fight fatigue and stay focused.

Reduce Stress

If you are always stressed, your body is continuously releasing stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. If you overstress, your brain is undoubtedly overworked, and you can’t get enough sleep, which often results in exhaustion. Additionally, when you are stressed, you may not make time for healthy habits like a proper diet and exercise. So, try all you can to lighten that load you are carrying. Physical activity could also help you with stress.

Remember to Turn Off Your Electronics Before Bed

Having music play the entire night could be another cause of a poor sleep pattern, as could keeping your cell phone within arm’s reach on your night table. So, if you want to sleep soundly, turn them off at least a half an hour before going to bed.

All in all, if you are having persistent episodes of weariness, it’s possible to fight fatigue naturally. But don’t expect the recovery to happen in a single night. Like all worthwhile efforts, it will take some time to reap the benefits.
