7 Causes of Fatigue
Do you ever ask yourself “Why am I so tired?” This is a very common question that many people ask. Here is a list of the 7 causes of fatigue.
- Diet – If you eat and drink a lot of caffeine and sugar in your diet, then I suggest you get rid of it now and replace that with something healthier such as fruits, vegetables and protein. By consuming too much of caffeine and sugar, it causes your blood sugar levels to alter.
- Exercise – Some people may believe that exercising will tire you out but actually, exercising on a regular basis will not only boost your energy but also put you in a better mood. At least 40-60 minutes of exercise four days a week is a good way to keep your energy going.
- Loss of Nutrients – You might not be taking enough nutrients such as protein, carbohydrates, and fat. These nutrients fuel you with energy in order to keep your heart beating, the brain working and muscles pumping.
- Sleep – Some people may have lack of sleep. We need about a good 7 ½ to 8 hours of sleep a night.
- Anemia – This is a common cause of fatigue, which are low levels of hemoglobin. People who are anemic must eat more foods with iron in it such as certain meats and vegetables.
- Vitamin D Deficiency – Vitamin D is very important for every single cell in the body. Vitamin D gives us a lot of energy. Some ways to obtain Vitamin D would be eating foods such as fish oils, mushrooms beef liver, cheese and etc.
- Depression – By being sad and tired at the same time can be a sign of depression. Depression can cause someone to be tired because they are so unpleased with life that they do not see the need in getting up and being active.
