You’re often too tired to exercise. You KNOW you should do it – but you are just….so…..tired! So sleep! Try going to sleep early for a few nights in a row. If you STILL don’t feel all that great, then talk to your Doctor. You could have a problem with your Thyroid, a problem with Obstructive Sleep Apnea or even a vitamin deficiency like B12 deficiency. Anemia is a common problem in women that can make them chronically tired. Some people have abnormalities in the calcium levels as a result of their parathyroid not behaving properly.
So once your Doctor has determined that you are well – and sleeping longer is not helping…..try exercise. Try doing exercise at home first. If you have some equipment like an exercise bike or treadmill – USE IT! Start with 15 min. per day and then work your way up to an hour a day. If you don’t have anything, then start with some light stretching, pushups, situps and just skipping in place for 15 min! You don’t even need a skipping rope! Just stick with it and try progressing every day for a couple of weeks.
9 times of out 10, you will feel better overall. You will be more calm, more thoughtful and generally happier. Don’t worry about your weight – and don’t measure yourself on a scale. Just go by how you feel and how your clothes fit.
You will start to sleep better and feel better.
