  • First of all, it is good to begin by looking at the drains of our energy that we can and cannot change. What do you really have control over? if you’re a parent, taking care of your parents, having busy work days, or have been dealing with Covid or other illnesses, all of these can be exhausting.
  • Of course, a good night’s sleep is a great way to start dealing with fatigue. Please pay attention to whether you are getting enough sleep and if not, Look for tips to help or discuss more serious issues with your doctor. So many people have such busy Lifestyles that they feel like they are rushing all the time. Recent research is showing that taking little pauses, even under 5 minutes throughout the day can help with recharging our batteries. Even 10 seconds of rest, one study found, can improve our ability to learn.
  • Having the right fuel in your furnace is essential too. Eating nutritious foods, staying hydrated, and being physically active definitely add to the energy sources.
  • Remembering what is really important in our lives helps with prioritizing our experiences and our relationships with others.
