Do you have these symptoms of general lethargy whenever you go on your regular routine throughout the day? Experiencing fatigue easily when you do the simplest of all chores? Well, you might just have a chronic fatigue syndrome and you might not know it. Actually, it is one of the main causes of stress, which might expose you to more threatening health problems on the long run.
It is pointed out that fatigue starts out when you have irregular sleeping patterns. It is actually quite easy to remedy this by routinely completing your sleep within 6 to 8 hours per day. How do you do it? One tip is to get to sleep by 11 p.m. before midnight. To aid you from having a good night's sleep, try having a warm bath before going to bed as it will ease your weary nerves that calm you down and encourages you to fall asleep easily.
Another good thing to do before sleeping is to drink some warm milk or hot chamomile tea to induce you into being relaxed before going to bed. It is also advised that you give yourself time to read a book on bed so that your mind will not wander off to things you've done for the day. It helps your brain to be soothed from all the worries that can disturb you into falling asleep.
Your diet can also trigger chronic fatigue as you might not be aware of it. If you are a carbonated drink or a caffeine fix freak, you might consider trying to slow down on those four or five hours before you sleep as they can keep you perky and have trouble sleeping after. Try to increase intake of fruits and vegetables and lighten up your dinner to salads -- these can be very helpful in getting you the right energy sources that would counteract chronic fatigue syndrome.
Of course,exercise is another key to thwart chronic fatigue syndrome. Try to have a 15-minute stretching after you get up from bed. Make it a habit so that you'll feel energized throughout the day. In a week, you should devote 3 hours more of exercise through walking, jogging or going to the gym. It takes a lot of work but the benefits can be good for your general health.
Just try to follow the simple steps I enumerated and you're good to go in preventing chronic fatigue syndrome from eating away your time to enjoy lif
