Do you feel tired all the time? So did I – until I discovered these 3 secret tips

Updated on February 11, 2014

You may know that it’s not normal, and you may have even tried different techniques, but yet you still can’t stop being tired!

I used to feel exactly the same way. I’d wake up tired, drag myself through the day, and then get to 10pm at night and simply not be able to sleep. This vicious cycle repeated itself for years and years, having an impact on all areas of my life.

This condition isn’t limited to any particular gender, race, gender or age group either – it can affect you whether you are a 16 year old youth, or a 70 year old male.

If this sounds similar, even a little, to your situation, then read on. It wasn’t until I discovered this TRILOGY of methods – and combined them – that I was able to escape from the constant clutches of fatigue.

I truly hope you will get as much out of these methods as I did, and that they will give you a renewed sense of vigour in your life. The great thing about them is that they are so simple to apply to your life, you can start doing it right now – at little to no cost at all.

Power Naps

Sleeping when you’re tired? Whoever would have thought of that?

Unfortunately, napping is one of the most misunderstood techniques used for overcoming chronic fatigue. Many people make one of two mistakes here: they either don’t nap at all, or they nap for too long.

Both cases are wrong. Scientific studies have proven that short naps can restore productivity, mental alertness and energy to pre-tiredness levels – as long as the nap is 15 minutes or less in length.

Also known as a power nap, this technique can be used practically anywhere, and at any time (although it is advisable not do so more 3 or less hours before your actual bed time).

Simply set a timer for 15 minutes, get comfortable, close your eyes and quieten your mind. Whether you’re asleep or not when the alarm goes off, get up and carry on your day – you’ll be amazed at how much better you feel with a short, simple power nap!

Do you often feel tired throughout the day?

Exercise + Nutrition

Often referred to across the internet as the ‘miracle’ for life, exercise and nutrition has to be taken into account – but it doesn’t have to be complicated?

Walk, jog or run for a certain amount of time, and if you so desire, lift weights or engage in other sports or activities which require physical exertion. It’s that simple. Make sure you do some form of activity no less than 3 days a week, but never, ever over-trainif you feel tired, simply have a ‘rest’ day.

With regards to nutrition, it’s of course best to switch to healthy whole foods, but if you want to know why you feel so tired all the time then keep a food log for a day or two, noting down your energy levels after you eat certain types of food.

Why? This may help you discover that you have a food allergy that’s causing you to become tired after eating – such as a gluten allergy. You can then eat accordingly, and avoid the post-meal slump so common nowadays.

Vitamins & Sunlight

The last tip to be used in combination with the previous two, is to take a vitamin supplement and expose yourself to more sunlight!

Vitabiotics offers a fantastic supplement guaranteed to boost your energy levels by supplying you with the right amount of iron – without the right amount, the food you eat will be wasted, as it needs the iron to benefit you!

Take these for a week or so and note your energy levels. You’ll be positively shocked at how quickly the supplements work, especially if you don’t have a perfect diet. Amazon sell these at an unbeatable price – and what price can you put on feeling energetic? Click the links below to go through, and be sure to purchase 2-3 lots to ensure you have enough time to feel the benefits. Still unsure? Read the reviews – they really do work!

Lastly, if you live in a country with little sunlight, get out into it whenever you can – or take regular holidays to sunny lands. It may seem a little simplistic, but if you don’t get enough sunlight you’re setting yourself up for failure – lack of sunlight is linked to depression, fatigue, and lack of motivation.

These 3 simple yet ridiculously effective tips may perhaps be nothing new, but they were to me – when they were combined! This is the secret, so when you feel really tired in the middle of the day, power nap. Improve your food choices, get some exercise, and regularly take a multivitamin whilst standing outside in the sun.

If you do this day in, day out for the next few weeks, you are guaranteed to feel happier, and most importantly – more energetic!

Disclaimer – Chronic fatigue and constantly feeling tired can also be a symptom of something serious. Always consult your doctor before making drastic changes to your lifestyle, and be sure to get their advice too. That being said, these tips generally apply to everyone - so get to it!
