Judging by the amount of attention my article How to Overcome Daily Fatigue and Tiredness has received I think it is fair to say that many of you grapple daily with tiredness and fatigue. This is despite the fact that most of us work in sit down sedentary jobs and sit down while we drive to and from work. So how is it that we feel so fatigued all the time? Here are some common reasons why:

No Exercise
Have you ever watched those bouncy fit and healthy looking people jog past you and wondered where they get the energy? The answer is simple. People who exercise have more energy because they exercise. I know it’s a difficult cycle to break into. You don’t feel like you have the energy to exercise so you don’t and thus never benefit from the energizing effect of exercise. I’ve experienced this problem just about as badly as anyone can.


I had serious chronic fatigue and one of the tools I used to win that battle permanently was and is exercise. Just start small. Slow walking concentrating on good deep breathing in the nose and out the mouth is a very good start.

Dehydration
Sadly the most people are walking around dehydrated, constipated and infested with parasites and fungi. They just don’t know it. Check out my article Does Meat Decompose in Your Intestines? to learn about what the indicators of dehydration are and what nasty things happen to your body when you become dehydrated.

Toxic People
These are people who are always negative, down on themselves and easily disturbed by any minor event that doesn’t go their way. You know who they are. They’re the complainers. The people who always criticize but never back that up with helpful solutions, the ultimate pessimists.

If you’re around such people for very long, due to what I like to call the Law of Entrainment, you’ll start to entrain to their energy level. You’ll enter into their headspace and essentially get dragged down, both emotionally and in terms of energy. You will want to limit the amount of time you spend in the company of this type of person.

I know that sometimes, say in a work environment, it is impossible to be free of toxic people. So in that case you want to guard against spending your valuable energy complaining about these people to others and even to yourself. Once you leave work make sure you don’t bring it home with you.

Working the Wrong Job
If you hate your job, find what you do boring or the people there toxic then chances are you come home drained every day. What’s worse is you probably spend most of your Sunday dreading the fact that Monday is tomorrow and you’ve got to go back to that hell-hole you call work. Your life really will be what your thoughts make it.

Another indication that you’re in the wrong employment is when you leave work on Friday afternoon and it feels like you’ve just been let out of jail. I think most of us have been there. I know I have. I’ve fled work every Friday afternoon and sadly felt glad those five days of my life were over. Considering the finite nature of our physical existence this is no way to live. You’ll know when you’re in the right job for you when it doesn’t feel like a job.

Worry and Stress
If you read my article on How to Overcome Daily Fatigue and Tiredness you would know the amazing fact that scientists discovered our brains are tireless. So when it comes to worry and stress it isn’t the actual thinking that gets you. It’s what the thoughts do to your body. Boredom, resentment, anxiety, worry, and rushing all cause us to feel fatigued because they produce nervous tensions in our bodies. It is this tension that drains you of energy and leaves you feeling deflated and wrung out at the end of the day. It will also carry over into your sleep quality as you toss and turn because you can’t relax.

Diet
This is the number one cause for lack of energy. You can see my ideas on The Best Diet for You. It will probably be a bit different to anything you’ve come across before. Regardless the method for sorting out what you specifically should be eating that I present in that article has had a great deal of success with very different people.

The bottom line of diet is that if you’re eating sick and unhealthy plants and animals and processed food then there is no chance of you ever being healthy. Sure you might feel ok now. Usually, however, that is just an indication that you’ve gotten used to feeling like crap. Make a change for a week to 14 days and then go back to what you normally would eat and you’ll really see the difference.

Any diet that is low in nutritional value (read: the modern western diet) forces the body to scavenge the vitamins and minerals it needs to digest and assimilate the food you eat from its own stores. This is particularly true of sugar. Anyone could deduce what sort of effect this scavenging will have if it continues. I’ll give you a hint – it’s not good health!
