As the days become shorter, your sleep and waking cycles may be disrupted leaving you feeling sleep deprived and fatigued. Another factor that can impact your quality of sleep is stress. Stress can make it difficult for you to fall asleep and then stay asleep. Lifestyle factors also play a part in how energetic you feel during the day. Using drugs or alcohol, engaging in too much physical activity, taking certain medications, suffering from illnesses like flu, and eating a poor diet, can also contribute to that tired feeling.
It’s important to identify what’s causing your fatigue in the first place and take steps to manage it before a significant health issue crops up. You can also look to a variety of homeopathic medicines that can help get you back on track and alleviate some of this tiredness in the short term.
Exhausted moms and burned out executives may find Kali phosphoricum useful as it helps relieve physical and intellectual fatigue due to overexertion, with sleeplessness and headaches.* Feeling overworked?
