get off the hamster wheel
Some psychologists believe that we were not designed to cope with the constant bombardment of information that is now in our lives. Our nutrition, exercise and family lives have all suffered at the hand of convenience, and the improvement in medicine has meant that all too often we reach for a pill rather than more natural and sustainable remedies.
Nutrition is big business now, with more people realising that how we fuel our bodies and therefore our cells, is vital. Foods that are high in sugar, for example, are known to cause inflammation and can reduce our ability to fight infection. Promoting good gut health is a good starting place for most of us.
Another way to start to improve your energy levels is by getting a good night's sleep. Blue light (from iPhones, iPads and tablets) eating too late (or the wrong foods), stress, and lack of exercise can all reduce your chances of a restful night's sleep.
Another piece of advice from the show was to try yoga or mindfulness classes. Tai-Chi and meditation can also be very helpful.
If you think that you are suffering with excessive fatigue you should visit your G.P. in the first instance.
