Fatigue is so common among Americans that it almost feels normal. A new report from Harvard Medical School says that although the underlying cause of persistent fatigue can be hard to identify, that doesn’t mean the fatigue is imaginary.//
According to Boosting Your Energy, fatigue often signals that something is wrong, physically or emotionally. Still, most people—even those being treated for fatigue-producing illnesses—can take steps to boost their energy. The following strategies can help:
? Control stress. Relaxation therapies like meditation, self-hypnosis, yoga, and tai chi are effective stress-reduction techniques.
? Lighten your load. Prioritize your list of “must-do” activities, and pare down less important tasks.
? Exercise. Exercise almost guarantees that you’ll sleep more soundly. It also causes your body to release hormones that can make you feel energized.
? Eat for energy. Small meals or snacks every few hours can reduce your perception of fatigue by ensuring a steady supply of nutrients to the brain.
? Don't smoke. Nicotine speeds the heart rate, raises blood pressure, and stimulates brain-wave activity associated with wakefulness, making it harder to fall asleep. And once you do fall asleep, its addictive power can kick in and awaken you with cravings.
? Enjoy the outdoors. Gardening, hiking, or walks along the beach can help restore body and soul. There aren’t any scientific studies documenting that communing with nature can actually fight fatigue, but some scientists are exploring this theory.
