Vitamins are key
A varied and balanced diet is the key against fatigue. B vitamins, which can be found in legumes, yeast, meat, cheese and whole grains, can affect temper, reasoning and your metabolism. Magnesium, iron and vitamin C also play a big role in our energy levels. Coenzyme Q10 is an effective antioxidant and is involved in the energy transfer within cells. Its levels decrease with older age and increased strain on the body. Look out not only for what you eat, but also your fluid intake (still water, unsweetened tea, fresh juice). We recommend adding vegetable smoothies, green sprouts, birch sap, seaweed and reishi mushroom to your diet.
Rest and mental wellbeing
Allow yourself plenty of time to regenerate and restore your strength. Don’t underestimate the benefits of a good night’s sleep. Learn to clear your mind of your daily stresses and responsibilities at the end of the day. Invest into your hobbies, create family rituals, increase your physical and mental strength.
Fatigue that lasts longer than 5 weeks should be consulted with a physician. If your condition doesn’t improve, or you start noticing increasing symptoms, contact your GP.
