Do you seem to be consistently tired?
My first piece of advice is to see your Doctor. You should have blood work run to ensure it is not something severe. If, after doing so and he/she says nothing is wrong, my next suggestion is to go all-natural. While the temptation may hit you to buy energy drinks… Don’t!
The ingredients in many of them will do you no good. Most may give you an immediate burst of energy, but the crash afterwards can be harsh.
Just follow along and use any, or all of these 7 natural ways to battle fatigue.
#1 Natural Ways To Battle Fatigue: Go For A Walk Or Jog
This absolutely has to be the top tip. Often, fatigue hits us because we are sitting at a desk, on the couch or just doing a few things around the house.
By getting out and doing some exercise, you are working the organs like your heart and lungs and this will increase oxygen and blood flow which in turn, gives you more energy.
#2 Natural Ways To Battle Fatigue: Take A Close Look At Your Sleeping Patterns
This is easily a top reason people feel fatigued all the time. There are various factors such as:
- too much light in your sleeping area,
- an uncomfortable mattress and/or pillow,
- too much noise,
- and sleeping at inconsistent times or getting too little of sleep.
Some of these factors are not within your control but there are ways you can battle them. If there is too much light entering your sleeping area, you may try dark curtains.
Investing in a high quality mattress and pillow is just plain wise.
Let’s say you live in an apartment in Las Vegas, the city that never sleeps. You are hearing cars and people throughout the night. Earplugs may be the answer to this problem.
And by all means, set a regular sleep schedule where you go to bed and arise at consistent times. We need 7 – 8 hours of sleep every 24 hours.
#3 Natural Ways To Battle Fatigue: Make Waking A Stretch
How do you awaken each day? Is it with stress and rushed?
I suggest you set that alarm 10 to 15 minutes earlier and begin the day with some simple stretching. Stretch your arms, legs, neck, back and shoulders. This gets blood flowing and will relieve any tension and stressed areas.
You WILL notice an improvement in how you feel throughout the day with this simple technique.
#4 Natural Ways To Battle Fatigue: Potato Juice
You may think I am a little loco here, but it works…
Take 1 medium sized potato with the peeling still on. Cut it in chunks and put the chunks in 1 ½ cups of water. Now cut ½ of a lemon in smaller chunks and add to the mixture.
Soak this concoction overnight and after your morning stretch, simply pour the liquid (without the chunks) into a glass. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and mix well.
Now drink it… Drink it all!
The potassium from the potato and the vitamin C from the lemon will give you superpowers.
#5 Natural Ways To Battle Fatigue: Add Adaptogenic Herbs To Your Diet
There are certain herbs that will help your body overcome stress and tension which will ultimately win the war against fatigue.
Try adding these natural herbs to your diet in various recipes:
- and holy basil
These herbs have a calming effect and help you focus on the important stuff.
#6 Natural Ways To Battle Fatigue: Licorice Root
Getting licorice root in pill or extract and taking it on a regular basis will help your adrenal glands produce adequate supplies of cortisol which plays a huge role in your body’s reaction to stress.
If the body’s stress is controlled, you will be less fatigued.
#7 Natural Ways To Battle Fatigue: Copy Popeye
Did you watch the cartoon Popeye?
Believe it or not, there is truth behind how spinach can give you power like Popeye the Sailor Man!
Spinach is rich in iron and will boost your red cell count.
Here’s a suggestion… Keep a bag of raw spinach leaves and every so often, just chew one down… Add come nuts like almonds or walnuts to them for a delicious snack.
Remember what I said at the start of this post… If you are feeling overwhelming fatigue, first and foremost, see your Doctor. And, if all seems well but you are still feeling tired a lot, use these natural ways because they do work.
