Overcoming Fatigue and Tiredness, and Boosting Energy | [John Briffa]

Overcoming Fatigue and Tiredness, and Boosting Energy

We can all feel tired from time to time, and for most of us, a little more rest will get us back on track quickly enough. However, for some, fatigue can be persistent even after a few good nights' sleep. Some, for instance, will find themselves suffering from a slump of energy in the mid-afternoon, and feel the need for some sugar or caffeine to pick them up at this time. Others can find their energy levels are perpetually flat, no matter what they do, causing them to feel as though they're wading through treacle all day long.

      "Insights into fatigue from a doctor"

      This was useful and interesting. Much more medical and matter-of-fect than I was expecting - I thought it would be self-help style. But that also meant there was less BS.

      It was rather short though - I would have liked more practical info e.g. on eating to sustain a balanced blood sugar. But it moved very quickly through the various diagnoses.
