While the most likely culprit of constant fatigue is sleeping less than 7-9 hours a night, there are other explanations. Some reasons for always feeling tired include:
- Adrenal Fatigue/Chronic low energy, Adrenal fatigue is an increasingly common diagnosis used to indicate depletion of the adrenal glands. Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenals have become overtaxed by excess cortisol release and can no longer produce levels of cortisol necessary for optimal body function.
- Lifestyle habits, like not getting enough exercise or less nutritious food choices
- Anemia, aka when your red blood cell count is low and therefore doesn’t carry enough oxygen to your organs, which is usually due to low iron levels
- Depression or other mental health conditions, such as anxiety
- Thyroid problems, because the thyroid produces hormones related to energy
Adrenal Fatigue encompasses multiple systems and aspects of our health. Most of the main causes are lifestyle related, too much stress, poor diet, poor sleep, over activity, chronic emotional instability, specially feeling constant fear, anxiety, unresolved trauma that makes the system operate in constant fight or flight mode.
Restoring Adrenal Fatigue
Rest, and good deep sleep are vital to your recovery. Reduce stress is often overused advice, but yes, get rid of whatever stressors that you no longer need and your body will thank you for it. Making health positive life style changes to give yourself more joy, ease, that breathing room will serve you well.
If you look at life from the perspective that “you”, not what you’re doing, is the most important thing in the world and “you” are the creator of your world, then you will creatively take steps to make positive changes.
