Treatment Options: Tiredness
Fortunately, there are things you can do to help alleviate your levels of tiredness. Firstly, if you find you are turning to alcohol a little too often, try to cut this down as alcohol can make you feel more tired as your body tries to process it. Don’t drink more than the recommended 14 units a week and see if cutting back helps your energy levels. Add more water into your day and cut down on caffeine – especially in the afternoon and evening. Alongside monitoring what you drink, you should also make sure you’re eating a healthy, balanced diet.
Try switching up your exercise routine – or adding in some gentle exercise if you don’t currently do any. The NHS says that adults should be aiming for two hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week. That includes brisk walking, running and cycling.
Sorting out your sleep habits can also help with tiredness. Stick to a regular bedtime as much as possible, turn off your electronic gadgets and don’t look at them for at least an hour before you go to bed - this will enable your brain to switch off.
Address your stress and look to boosting healthy habits such as yoga and mindfulness, spending more time with friends and family, and doing something that makes you feel good – listening to music or reading a book for example.
If you’d still like to address your tiredness levels, you could try one or more of the following treatment options available at Este:
