Health Tip: Fight Frequent Fatigue
(HealthDay News) -- It is normal to be tired now and then. But if your fatigue doesn't end after a good night's sleep, there may be underlying health concerns, the U.S. National Institute on Aging says.
Certain medications, medical problems and emotional health issues can trigger feelings of frequent exhaustion, the agency says.
It offers these suggestions:
- Keep a diary to help uncover patterns during the day when you feel tired.
- Exercise frequently.
- Avoid naps longer than 30 minutes late in the day. They can leave you groggy and may make it harder to fall asleep at night.
- Stop smoking
- Ask for help if you feel overwhelmed.
