You have a lot to do each day and you may not have enough gumption to get it done. You know you want to do it, but you have a lack of energy that may leave some chores and even some welcomed activities undone. Not having enough energy can be a huge problem. At times, there are reasons why this happens that are perfectly normal and will go away, and then there are reasons why your energy deficit may end up being chronic. Small changes in your life can be mean huge changes in your energy levels. Figure out why you are do tired and then make the needed change to get your life back.
One time when a lack of energy is not anything you have done is after you have had surgery. At first, your body will produce adrenaline and you won’t feel that let down. However, one to two weeks after your procedure you may feel a total letdown that leaves you exhausted just from walking from one room in your house to another. In most cases, this is due to your surgery and should be short term. Make yourself move even if you don’t feel like it. If this does not go away, consult with your doctor.
Women may also feel a lack of energy after they have had a baby. This is just because of all that she body has just gone through. You may have trouble getting your energy back because you are getting up every two to three hours with your newborn each night. This lack of vitality will go away as long as you make time to take care of yourself. Sleep when you need to, but get out for a walk with the baby if you can, and make sure you are eating the best diet that you can. Soon enough you will start to feel a little more like your old self. Ask your spouse to take a night time feeding or to help in another way if you can and make sure you take care of yourself too.
Otherwise, your lack of energy may signal that there is something wrong with your body of which you are not yet aware. It could be something serious, like cancer, or it could just be something small and treatable. Do not freak out if a lack of energy is new and think something is terribly wrong, but if it lingers, you should talk to your doctor about how you used to feel and how you are not feeling. Discuss any change in your life that may have contributed so that they can find out what is going on with you.
Lastly, lifestyle can go a long way towards your lack of energy. If you have gained weight and are not moving around as much as you used to be, you could find that you have less and less energy each day. When you have less energy, you move less and the problem gets worse. What you should do is try to adopt a more sensible diet and to get out and move more. Even walking around the block can help invigorate you. If you keep this up, you will soon find your waistline getting smaller and your energy levels going up.
