First is to rule out any health problems. If you are feeling unusually tired talk to your doctor.

Tip number two- get moving. Who feels like exercising when they're tired? Although it may be hard to get moving, more than likely once you do, you will feel more energetic. Even a small amount of exercise can increase your energy level. Be careful not to push yourself too hard because that can also cause fatigue. As always make sure your doctor has cleared due to exercise, go at your own pace, listen to your body, you should never have any pain and you should always be able to take that deep breath.

Stay hydrated - dehydration can cause fatigue, decrease alertness and concentration. Never rely on thirst as a gauge to the body's need of hydration. Drink low sugar, non-caffeinated, non-alcoholic beverages at regular intervals to keep your energy high. Fruits and vegetables are high in water content so make sure to include plenty of them in your diet.

Tip #4- eat a healthy diet, low in sugar and fat, be sure to get the adequate amount of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Overeating and undereating can both cause fatigue. Don't skip meals but pay attention to portions.

Tip #5- get plenty of rest, and follow a schedule that works best for your energy levels. Some people are more energetic in the morning others are more energetic at night. Aim to go to bed and wake up at the same time each day. Most adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night. Allow yourself time to wind down before you go to bed.

Totally agree with tip #2 … it’s hard to train when you’re feeling unmotivated and lethargic… but if you can make a start you’ll find it makes you feel so much better.

Over the years I’ve really struggled with portion control, but since I started taking my weights and cardio more seriously and I have a set routine it’s actually quite easy once I had my nutritionist show me the way. Now I can’t eat like I used too which really surprises my family 🤣
