You find yourself struggling to stay awake at your 2 p.m. work meeting and you blame it on late nights. You find yourself ready to drop before 8 p.m. every evening and you dismiss it. The truth is your body is already sending you subtle signs that you are not just tired, but you are exhausted. While everybody gets tired once in a while, there is an urgent need to deal with exhaustion because ignoring it can be dangerous.

Exhaustion is known to have several effects on overall health. It can precipitate issues with appetite, heart disease, inflammation and even affect the immune system. If you find yourself frequently tired and experiencing these signs below, then it is time to boost your energy levels using holistic natural methods which should include more sleep and other natural methods.

Dry Lips

The weather is cold and with it you notice that your skin is scaly and your lips are dry so you ignore them, and chalk it up to the weather or dehydration. You could be right, the weather could be the reason for your dry lips and skin. But if somehow you notice that you’re also feeling drained, and constantly craving a drink then you should know that your problem is not simply dehydration but dehydration and exhaustion.

You need to improve your energy levels by increasing your water intake and sleep more. It is easy to forget about the need to drink water but luckily you can use apps that remind you to drink water and track your water intake. The colour of your urine can clue you in on your degree of hydration.

Foggy mind

You find yourself looking for your keys more often than usual because you simply can’t remember where you put them or you discover that you are more forgetful than usual. Sleep fuels your brain and enables it to stabilize any chemical imbalances. Sleep also aids the brain to stabilize mood, behaviour and process memories. The REM (rapid eye movement) period is critical to this function and if interrupted, can lead to a slow, foggy and irritable day. If you notice your mind getting less sharp than it should be, then you need to prioritise the amount of sleep you get to restore your brain.

Your workouts have become terrible

If you previously used to kill it at the gym but recently realised that you can’t keep going like you used to even with the aid of your favourite natural testosterone boosting supplement , then your exhaustion needs to be addressed. Exercise takes some degree of mental focus and physical activity and if you can’t perform to the same degree, then it means that your rest has been compromised. Your exhaustion is taking its toll on your gym performance. Your body can’t rise to the challenge and this is because of your poor sleep routine. Sometimes the problem might be motivation and if this is the case then find ways to motivate yourself to workout, otherwise, check your sleep patterns.

You are feeling more and more stressed

Stress has the ability to keep you up at night but being able to deal with it properly might be just what you need to avoid the exhaustion induced insomnia that is bound to come sooner or later. Coping with stress can be by distracting yourself from the stressor till you find a way to deal with it or using mindfulness techniques to ease up your stress levels. This can help you cope better with high levels of stress and thus sleep better.

You crave more junk than usual.

We all have the occasional craving for a giant bag of salty potato chips but if you find yourself craving junk food more and more, then it is a sign that you are definitely exhausted. High cortisol levels are present in stressful situations and the brain will seek serotonin to deal the stress. Junk food, especially meals high in carbs and fat help aid the release of serotonin. Ignore your cravings and instead reach for healthy meals with a low glycaemic index to stabilize your blood sugar and give your body proper fuel to deal with the exhaustion.

Being aware of your exhaustion levels is a good first step towards tackling your exhaustion problems and knowing what step to take at each instance will greatly improve your natural outcomes. Watch out for signs of exhaustion and take the correct measures to correct it. Live healthy.
