It’s 4 AM and you’re counting sheep and counting flowers on the wall, and you want to sleep cause you know how tired you’ll be in the morning. What’s a naturally beautiful woman gonna do???
First of all, you’re going to drink more water – but not right before you go to sleep. The very first sign of fatigue is dehydration when you wake up. Your body needs a lot of water to keep it going and keep it flowing, so drink water the very first thing when you open your eyes – and keep on drinking it all day.
Make a to do list right before you go to sleep. That will help you to stay asleep instead of waking up in the middle of the night worrying about what you need to do tomorrow.
Get some exercise during the day. Research has shown that just a short and brisk ten-minute walk can help reduce fatigue. A short walk can amp up your energy levels and keep you going for the rest of the day.
Reduce the amount of sugar in your diet as it will spike your energy and then let you down, making your whole body work harder to keep up the with ups and downs that will exhaust you. A balanced diet, full of healthy proteins, carbs and fats will keep you going at a steady level, and allow you to calm down and relax and be ready to rest and sleep.
There are some essential oils like lavender that you can sprinkle on your pillow to make you sleepy. Or you can make a lavender and chamomile eye pillow to really put you to sleep (see L is for Lavender – Make your own Lavender Dream Pillow).
Stay tuned for some Fabulous Fixes for Fatigue!
