This happens to most of us at some point in our lives: the pace of life just gets to us and leaves us positively exhausted.

Unhealthy eating habits, work stress, relationship stress, insufficient sleep, too many responsibilities, or other forms of pressure may be adding to your exhaustion. We offer a few solutions.

Take action:

  • Sleep eight hours a night and get a good, uninterrupted night's sleep

  • Learn good time management and make time for exercise and relaxation
  • Use electronic aids such as the internet for banking and shopping
  • Do something to escape the tension spiral: change your job, get marriage counselling and learn relaxation techniques
  • Stop smoking – cigarette smoke reduces the oxygen available to the lungs

  • Don’t drink too much coffee or alcohol
  • If you're overweight, make a plan to lose weight

  • If you’ve been very tired for more than three weeks, it may be a sign of depression, heart disease or another medical problem.
