Managing Fatigue: Beyond Feeling Tired

Managing Fatigue: Beyond Feeling Tired

Everybody feels tired, even exhausted at times, and you know that as soon as you have had food, a warm shower and a good sleep, you’ll feel better.  But what happens when you don’t feel better? Could you be struggling with fatigue?

Defining Fatigue

Fatigue is defined in the Oxford English dictionary as “extreme tiredness resulting from mental or physical exertion or illness”.

Fatigue is so much more than simply feeling tired. It is feeling so exhausted that you are unable to manage to perform the tasks normally associated with daily living. It’s having your day-to-day life disrupted by constant, overwhelming exhaustion.

Fatigue: Symptom or Underlying Issue?

Fatigue is a symptom, not a condition in itself, it can be related to a physical problem or disease, a psychological problem or an issue relating to socio-economic lifestyle factors.

Simple Lifestyle Changes

It is suggested that you adopt lifestyle changes such as cutting out caffeine, drinking less alcohol and taking more exercise which can all help alleviate fatigue. However, should none of these help and your fatigue is ongoing, it is recommended that you see a Doctor.
