Tiredness is a common complaint, and something most of us will complain of at some point in our lives. Tiredness can happen occasionally, or it can sometimes be more of a permanent fixture. Tiredness can come about as a result of many things – some are physiological, some are as a result of the lifestyle you lead, and some can be psychological. Tiredness is usually something that can usually be dealt with if you are willing to change certain things in your lifestyle.

What Causes: Tiredness

If you’re experiencing an unusual level of tiredness and you’re worried something might be wrong, then consider going to your GP. They will be able to conduct certain tests – for instance, they’ll be able to check whether you’re suffering from an iron deficiency as this can affect your energy levels. Your GP will also be able to look at other causes such as physical elements and psychological factors. You could be experiencing prolonged bouts of tiredness due to one or more of the following -

  • An iron deficiency
  • Persistent stress
  • Being overweight
  • Pregnancy
  • Not getting enough exercise
  • Insomnia
  • As a result of anxiety, depression or emotional shock
  • Due to taking certain medication or undergoing treatment

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:
