There are some fairly simple things you can do in order to battle exhaustion and increase your energy.

It’s time to take action. Exhaustion is such a huge problem in this day and age. We’re all expected to do more and be more and it can really start to tear down your body and make you feel older than you really are!

Rule Out Health Issues

If you feel tired all of the time, it’s a really good idea to see your physician and perhaps have a full physical examination. There are a lot of illnesses, including diabetes, Crohn’s disease, anemia, and hypothyroidism, which can cause fatigue. It’s important that these issues are ruled out or treated as appropriate before you try to fix the problem on your own.

Move More

It’s often the last things you want to do when you have to battle exhaustion, but actually, a little healthy living in the form of exercise can really give you an energy boost. You don’t even have to take part in a brutal spin class or extensive weight training session to see the benefits – a brisk walk or some light aerobics will be just as effective. Not only will exercise leave you feeling invigorated,  but it will also contribute to a happier, healthier life and greater longevity too. Embrace it.

Yoga

This could have been covered in exercise, but when it comes to moving more, yoga seems to be particularly good way to increase your energy and battle exhaustion. One study conducted in Britain found that taking one yoga class a week could improve energy levels, as well as boosting confidence and improving mental clarity.

A lot of people think that yoga is not for them – twisting themselves up like pretzels – but actually, yoga comes in many forms and it is suitable for people of all ages, body-types and fitness levels, so do give it a try.

Drink More Water

This is my biggest problem, especially during the colder months. I will drink water all summer long, but once it starts getting colder, I don't drink it. I have been getting slightly better. There are bottles now that alert you to remember to drink. Crazy right? But they are worth every penny.

When we are dehydrated, our energy levels plummet and we are unable to perform as well physically as we can when we’re fully-hydrated. So, next time you start to feel fatigued, the solution could be as simple as reaching for a refreshing glass of water. Drink throughout the day to keep the fatigue at bay.

Early to Bed

It should be no surprise that getting more sleep is a great way to fight exhaustion and increase your energy levels. Going to bed an hour early is a great way to facilitate more sleep, but if you have trouble nodding off, taking a hot bath, spraying your pillow with lavender or meditating before bed are all great ways to help you drift off and let your body look after you for 8 hours or so.

Increase Your Energy - get to sleep

Another great way to get to bed on time, turn all of your electronics off or volumes down. Read a book, or even do what I call “bed yoga” they are simple stretches that help you relax, stretch out your muscles, and help you get a good nights sleep.

Up Your Vitamins & Minerals

There are several vitamins and minerals that are absolutely essential to increase your energy:

  • Omega-3 oils are great for heart and brain health, but they can also boost mental alertness. It’s best to get your oils from food, but a good Omega-3 supplement will do the job almost as well.
  • Vitamin B12 helps transform the food you eat into energy that your cells can use. B-12 also helps keep your nerves and blood system healthy to help steer off anemia which can cause fatigue.
  • Iron is needed to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that transports oxygen from your lungs to the organs and tissues throughout your body. Without adequate levels, you'll be left feeling fatigued and sluggish.
  • Melatonin is a natural hormone that plays a role in sleep. While you naturally produce melatonin, you could need a boost to help your levels stable for adequate sleep.
