Fatigue and low energy are essentially the same thing however, low energy is something that comes and goes where as fatigue tends to hang around for days, weeks or even years (often referred to as burnout, chronic fatigue or adrenal fatigue).
The most simple way to look at fatigue is that it's an indicator that something is not right in the body, the trick is working out what’s causing it. Below are 5 Tips for improving energy and overcoming adrenal fatigue.
1.Ensure you're staying hydrated
Hydration is the first thing to check when you’re feeling tired. When dehydration occurs, the blood becomes more viscous, this results in it not being able to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the cells - this impacts on energy levels.
2. Eat a wholefood diet
Your body makes energy from the foods you eat. If you are eating fresh, alive, non-processed foods this aids energy production. However, if you are eating dead, processed, packaged, synthetically flavoured, high sugar foods your body will struggle to make energy. You will notice you feel tired straight after eating processed foods.
