Fighting fatigue used to be a constant battle for me. I woke up tired and spent the entire day yawning. There wasn’t a moment in the day where I felt energized and pumped to engage in activities. It was truly a significant issue when I worked the night shift. Not only did I experience fatigue but by the end of the shift, I was exhausted and sleepy.
Fatigue impacts our daily lives as we age. It is a lack of energy and tiredness that does not improve with sleep. Our lives get more stressful and difficult impacting our sleep, health and daily function. As we age our bodies ability to fight inflammation and stress. This aging fact increases fatigue and impacts sleep. I have suffered from Fatigue since early adulthood (20s). I remember needing a nap midday and drinking coffee to keep my energy. I lived on coffee and junk food. Little did I know that my poor diet and high coffee intake was actually making my fatigue worse. Then add marriage and children to the mix and I was hopelessly fatigued all the time. Fatigue is linked to our habits, diet and routines. It can be the result of poor eating habits, emotional stress, boredom or poor sleep patterns. It took me 20 years to realize that my fatigue along with all my health issues was related to my poor diet and high-stress environment.
