One in five of us feel unusually tired at any one time.   Nearly everyone struggles with being overtired or overworked from time to time. Such instances of temporary fatigue usually have an identifiable cause and a likely remedy.

Chronic fatigue, on the other hand, lasts longer and is more profound.It’s a nearly constant state of weariness that develops over time and diminishes your energy and mental capacity. Fatigue at this level impacts your emotional and psychological well-being, too.

Fatigue isn’t the same thing as sleepiness, although it’s often accompanied by a desire to sleep — and a lack of motivation to do anything else.

Many cases of unexplained tiredness are due to lifestyle factors may be attributed to three areas: lifestyle factors, medical conditions or psychological problems.

Lifestyle factors
Feelings of fatigue often have an obvious cause, such as:

  1. Alcohol use or abuse
  2. Caffeine use
  3. Excessive physical activity
  4. Inactivity
  5. Lack of sleep
  6. Medications, such as antihistamines, cough medicines and cold remedies
  7. Unhealthy eating habits

Psychological conditions
Fatigue is a common symptom of mental health problems, such as:

  1. Anxiety
  2. Depression
  3. Grief
  4. Stress

Medical conditions
Unrelenting exhaustion may be a sign of a medical condition or underlying illness.

Call for an appointment with your doctor if your fatigue has persisted for two or more weeks despite making an effort to rest, reduce stress, choose a healthy diet and drink plenty of fluids.  Women in particular do not like being told that fatigue is a normal part of ageing.

Experts say most often it’s caused by a minor problem, with a relatively easy fix.

One of those fixes may be improving your diet. More and more research has validated the so-called super foods – like berries, nuts, yogurt, and salmon – for overall health.

The best way to eat if you want to banish tiredness
is to have a healthy, balanced diet that contains foods from the four main food groups in the right proportions. The four food groups are:

potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and other starchy foods

fruit and vegetables

milk and dairy foods

meat, fish, eggs, beans and other non-dairy sources of protein
