Why am i so exhausted??

I am so exhausted all of the time. I'm not sure why though. My kids are not really demanding my older two kind of do everything themselves and they prefer it that way lol...and my 6 month old sleeps through the night 99% of the time and is an angel during the day. I just feel so run down all the time...any suggestions to get me back to normal???

  • Are you drinking enough water? Being even the teeniest bit dehydrated can leave you feeling droopy; be sure to drink at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    A magnesium deficiency is incredibly common, and can not only make you feel tired, but can trigger anxiety attacks and migraines, and intensify symptoms of ADD/ADHD. I take a calcium/magnesiumVitamin D (cal/mag/D) daily, to boost my energy, bones and immune system.
    You may want to examine your diet. Meat, dairy, alcohol, simple grains (like white rice and pastas), and processed sugars (the white stuff, too, not just high fructose corn syrup) are all energy sappers. Build your meals around vegetables, whole grains, legumes and fruits

  • I don't know your circumstances but it could be from not eating healthy enough (lack of important vitamins and minerals), not doing any or enough exercise, or like me, you could be anemic.

  • I feel the same way most of the time. Its probably what ur eating or what ur not eating. Lots of water helps and having motivation.
