Feeling tired? Then you need to know this.


Chronic fatigue can trickle into our lives and begin to dissolve many important aspects of our life. However, we at Trade Roots know having too many goals to balance is overwhelming and is the reason why we like to narrow and simplify our goals. If you’re feeling chronically fatigued then you need to start with these 3 steps. 

1. RULE OUT HEALTH ISSUES

It’s important to rule out any health issues before you start. Fatigue is a common symptom of many illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease, anemia, thyroid disease, and sleep issues. Talk to your doctor if you feel unusually tired and start with a blood test to rule out any underlying health issues such as Iron or B vitamin deficiencies.

 

2. GET ACTIVE 

Humans are made to move, but when you’re feeling tired it's the last thing you want to do…. However, the science is clear that when you exercise your body begins to ramp up mitochondria production and you start to feel more energized.

Mitochondria are the body’s power generators inside of each cell. Their job is to combine oxygen, fuel, and nutrients and convert it into usable energy. After a few days of exercise, your body will already start making cellular changes and you will start to feel more energized each day. 

Exercising also forces your body to go into a deeper state of rest as the body begins repairing its self. 

If you only choose one thing to get back your energy, focus on being active every day. The science is so clear on the benefits of exercise that doctors are now prescribing it to patients in Canada. They said if you could put all the benefits of exercise into one pill it would be the most valuable and powerful pill on the planet.

Sometimes it’s hard to be motivated to move but you need to fight the resistance and move your body. It doesn’t have to be a big regime or plan, just start with something simple that will fatigue your muscles and increase your heart rate. The goal is to move. You don’t have to push your self to your limits, just remember the important thing is you did it and you that you are doing it consistently. If you forget a day, that's okay, just jump right back right on the horse. 

Here are some of the additional benefits of exercise:

  1. Improves mood
  2. Helps with weight loss
  3. Strengthens muscles and bones
  4. Increases energy levels
  5. Reduces your risk of chronic disease
  6. Boosts skin health
  7. Boost your brainpower and memory 
  8. Aids relaxation and sleep quality
  9. Reduces chronic pain
  10. It puts the spark back into your sex life
  11. It can be social and you can inspire others too!

3. DRINK MORE WATER! 

Yes, water. Aka the most important nutrient. We all know we should be drinking more water, but we always underestimate its importance.

Some life forms can’t live without oxygen, others need carbon dioxide, but every single living cell on planet earth needs water to survive. Those who have studied chemistry know that water is called the "universal solvent" because it dissolves more substances than any other liquid, and it is the most abundant liquid on earth. This is why it makes it the perfect liquid for all life forms to move vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins, and sugars throughout the body.

If you’re feeling sluggish, help your body out by drinking more water so your body can work more efficiently. Great news, people who exercise drink more water on average! 

If you struggle to keep track of how much water you drink, buy a couple of water bottles around 800-1000ml so you always have them around the house, in the car and at work. Then make it your goal to drink at least 1 bottle before lunch and one before the end of day. Below are more benefits of water: 

  1. Protects your tissues, spinal cord, and joints
  2. Helps excrete toxins through perspiration, urination, and defecation
  3. Helps maximize physical performance
  4. Aids digestion
  5. Helps with nutrient absorption
  6. Helps you lose weight
  7. Improves blood oxygen circulation
  8. Helps fight off illness
