5 Ways to Fight Fatigue

From the Menopause and Hormones Articles List

Woman falling asleep from fatigueI am so tired all the time! What can I do to regain my energy?

Are your daily activities are interrupted by crashing fatigue? Has sleep has become your newest hobby, or your bed has become your favorite vacation spot? Studies show a strong connection between menopause and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). According to HealthDay News, women are two to four times more likely than men to suffer from CFS, and it’s most common in women in their 40s who have had a gynecological surgery. If fatigue has become a frequent foe in your life, fight back with these energy boosters:

Fuel Your Body

Your body needs certain nutrients to function well. Try adding more leafy greens, almonds, figs, beets, and dates to balance your pH levels and boost your energy.

Fend Off Stress

Stress and anxiety drain your energy. Store your energy by taking time out of your day to de-stress with a bit of yoga or meditation.

Free Your Bedroom

Your bedroom should be dedicated to sleep, sex, and maybe a relaxing book or journal, but nothing else. Clutter, big screens, and other distractions can steal your precious sleep. Your brain should know that when you walk into your room, it is time for sleep.

Find a Supplement

Sometimes, your body needs a little extra help. Phytoestrogens such as black cohosh and hormone-regulating supplements such as Macafem, can help keep your hormone levels balanced, so your energy levels stay balanced as well. Herbal supplements such as chamomile tea, lavender oil, and melatonin can help you fall asleep and establish good sleep habits.

Fill Your Prescription

If no other treatments or remedies work, visit your doctor

to ask about prescription aids, which often include HRT. If your fatigue persists, it may be time to look into other health conditions.
