Why You’re Always So Tired

So tired

Fatigue is indeed a sneaky condition. Nothing hurts but you feel extremely tired – all the time. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t put your finger on the problem. 

Fatigue is your body’s way to telling you it’s not functioning properly. It can happens after periods of intense mental or physical effort. It’s normal if it lasts for 24 to 48 hours. If it lasts longer than this, know that your body is trying to tell you something is wrong.

Chronic fatigue is one of the most under-diagnosed conditions

Chronic fatigue is usually a result of poor choices and an unhealthy lifestyle. Overworking without proper downtime, drug and alcohol dependency and lack of good nutrition means your body can’t repair itself. Some of the lifestyle causes of fatigue include sleep apnea, lack of sleep, inadequate nutrition, caffeine overload and dehydration.

Fatigue is not just a feeling of being tired, it is a sign of a bigger problem and shouldn’t be ignored. It can become dangerous when it’s causes include anemia, depression, heart disease, hypothyroidism and diabetes. Other possibilities include allergies or UTI that’s gone undetected. Becoming tired immediately after a meal could point to an allergy. Here are some foods that perform wonders when it comes to fighting fatigue.

Foods that help fight fatigue

Fish and turkey gives your body easy to digest lean proteins that your body needs to maintain healthy cells and hormone production.

Whole grains are your body’s main fuel. They give you lasting energy and therefore, you must eat them in the morning.

Nuts, seeds and unrefined oils from foods such as almonds and pecans provide your body with all the energy it needs and keeps your circulatory system and heart healthy.

Fresh fruit and vegetables supply your body with essential micronutrients and help boost immunity.
