Tiredness And Fatigue Causes: Natural Remedies To Get Rid Of It

Question: I always feel tired and fatigue and bored all day. My lifestyle is not very aggressive. I have a desk job and sleep for about 7 hours a day. No major physical exercises. I do not have any known illness. Why do I feel so tired? Should I take some vitamins?

Please suggest me some home remedies and tips, so that I can feel more energetic.

What Are The Causes Of Tiredness?

Tiredness is a signal that the cells and tissues of the body are not getting the required sustenance to carry out their assigned tasks and functions properly.

  • Irregular and faulty eating patterns and refined or junk food is the primary cause for fatigue.
  • Anemia (a reduced level of haemoglobin) is another cause for tiredness and irritability. VitaminB12, vitaminB6, iron and folic acid, are essential for the growth and development of RBC’s. Therefore, their deficiency results in anemia.
  • Deprivation of sleep also causes weariness.

Do you wake up refreshed every morning? Is your sleep complete or you feel drowsy?

Home Remedies And Diet To Get Rid Of Fatigue

Carbohydrates are energy foods. They provide a steady flow of the much needed energy, to keep us up and about.

A diet which is deficient in whole cereals, fruits and vegetables cannot provide enough sustenance for the body. Hence we feel weary and drained out.

  • Remember to keep energy foods handy – dates, figs, groundnuts, ready made energy bars. They prevent a burn out.
  • Kick start your day with a fistful of nuts. They provide a burst of energy and keep you going all day long. Nuts are also good mood foods and suffuse you with instant feel good energy.
  • Heavy breakfast to fuel yourself up. Include one cereal, be it cornflakes/ wheat flakes / oats/ brown bread, one fruit, and one glass milk.

Multi vitamin supplements are recommended by a host of doctors but nutritionists advice against them. Initially, supplementing your diet to bridge the nutrient gap is a good idea, but don’t get habituated to them.

  • Boredom stems from having a fixed routine day in and day out. Moreover, you have a sedentary job. Any sport (swimming, badminton, tennis), kick boxing, and gym work outs, strengthens the mind, and infuses enthusiasm.
  • You need to incorporate a recreation in your schedule. Pick up any hobby that appeals to you. It takes your mind away from the mundane things in life and kills boredom.
  • Exercise can also boost your system greatly – physically and mentally. Exercise will improve your appetite and pep up digestion. Moreover the psychological benefits are many fold.

    I do the same stuff almost everyday, going from home to school and sometimes the gym in the mornings. I have sinus infections that keep coming back every three weeks and I feel really tired when I should get up in the mornings. I often feel heavy-headed or unbalanced but I guess this is because of the annoying sinusitis that comes with a dull headache that’s not painful just feels funny.

      The symptoms that you have described such as tiredness and loss of self confidence can be due to some type of anxiety and depression that you may be having. However, it is necessary to rule out any organic cause; therefore it is essential to consult your physician. Cheer up your mood to activities that you like. Talk to your friends and relatives about sometime that is puzzling you. This will reduce your stress and anxiety. You may find some solutions while talking to friends. Eat nutritious diet as it is essential for increasing physical energy. Avoid drinking and smoking if you have this habit.
