Fatigue, Tiredness and sadly EXHAUSTION is becoming one of the most popular symptoms of modern day life.
So what are the BIGGEST causes of FATIGUE ?
As someone who lived with M.E. for 25 years, bed and housebound a large part of my twenties I certainly know what fatigue is and even more so the extreme EXHAUSTION that leaves you too weak to lift your head out of bed or even speak.
Here is a list of 4 Major Causes of FATIGUE and how to ELIMINATE it.
- LACK OF DEEP QUALITY SLEEP – Do you always wake up feeling rested, refreshed and full of energy? Very few people today achieve deep quality sleep due to a variety of reasons. Mostly due to unhealthy daily habits that affect our sleep hygiene. Everything from too much technology at night, too little physical exercise, caffeine, sugar, alcohol or nicotine in diet.
- POOR NUTRITIONAL ABSORPTION – Lack of good quality nutrition is another major cause of fatigue, low levels of B12, Vitamin D, Iron, Copper, Magnesium, Zinc, CoQ10, Vitamin E and Potassium can also lead to symptoms of fatigue and extreme exhaustion. But even if you don’t eat packaged or processed foods and eat plenty of fruit and veg, there maybe other reasons you are getting the necessary nutrition from your foot. Leaky Gut and other Digestive Conditions, Immobility and Lack of Exercise, Medication, Dehydration can all be contributors to poor digestion absorption. Solution is a highly quality mineral and vitamin supplement and juicing especially using organic, pesticide free fruit and veg. Juicing is a healthy way for you to absorb the necessary vitamins and minerals you need fast and are ideal particularly in the morning for those suffering from exhaustive and fatigue related conditions such as M.E., CFS, Fibromyalgia…
- ANXIETY- Are you a constant worrier, worrying about yesterday, tomorrow, this or that. Are you constantly in an anxious hyper aroused state, feeding ofF your thoughts of what if ? The anxious mind catastrophies scenarios, leaves the mind and body constantly over stimulated, in an un-rested, very restless state. There is a wide range of disciplines that can aid anxiety, the right meditation techniques can really help the anxiety sufferer be in the moment, relaxation techniques are useful aids to reteach the mind, body and emotions to move into the relaxed state. CBT can help the individual become aware an vigilant of their unhealthy distorted thought patterns.
- STRESS- Like anxiety, STRESS causes the body to emerge into a state of hyper arousal, the fight or flight response also known as the survival response. The body is “hotwired” geared up for or reacting as if it is an emergency situation of survival. Chronic long term stress is the biggest cause of FATIGUE, EXHAUSTION and actually all of the above. Stress Management Advice, Coaching, Meditation & Relaxation, Yoga are all useful techniques that helps reduce and manage stress. But again meditation again is one of the most effective life skill and stress management tool anyone can learn that will help them let go of stress.
