  • I have been the same, a lot was due to mild depression but I have just changed up my food intakes.

    I actually eat high protein (eggs mainly) for breakfast, less carbs. More Brown rice, veggies and small amount of dairy and fruit.

    And it’s only the beginning for me and I have more energy and cope better with my moods.

    I have 3 young boys so I need all the energy that I can get.



  • Try taking a multivitamin.
    Lots of fresh fruit & veg in your diet.
    A good breakfast to start the day, a decent lunch & a hearty dinner.
    Plenty of exercise during the day.
    Come bed time you will be exhausted & wake up in the morning feeling refreshed & ready to go again.



  • Lots of sleep. Lots of exercise, I know sounds weird when you feel energyless, but it will help. Lots of fresh fruit and veggies



  • Yes multivitamins are a really good start!



  • I have started taking a womens night time multivitamin (Rest and Restore Night – Natures Way brand) it is supposed to replenish you while you sleep. In the week that I have been taking it I felt a dramatic change and feel great!



  • not sure much on your lifestyle but it helps to have a combination of multivitamins, balanced diet and exercise. if you are really concerned see your gp for a simple blood test to make sure your iron or b12 isn’t low.



  • Go out for a walk around the block! Any type of moving or exercise is great to get the energy levels up!



  • may be worth having a chat with your doctor.



  • Maybe seeing your GP will be a good idea , couple of tests will helpIt could be a lack of vitamins or minerals.



  • get more sleep, work out and eat better. if these don’t work, see a doc



  • Getting out and about always boosts my energy levels. It is so hard to get up and moving but once you start its amazing how much better you feel and how much energy it creates



  • I always find if I get out the house and do some exercise it actually energises me. Try not to think about it too much otherwise you’ll talk yourself into why you can’t (I know I do!). Just put some shoes on and get out the door. The fresh air really helps too. Also make sure you’re eating plenty of fresh, whole foods. A Vitamin supplement may be necessary but I’d recommend seeing a naturopath for advice.



  • Apparently regular exercise will actually boost your energy levels.



  • I also found this interesting thanks! I too have been feeling quite tired lately and finding it hard to concentrate, not good when I have an assignment due in a week.



  • I was the same but found it was a real lack of vitamin D and started taking a supplement 1000mg which has been great. Then my son started doing training which required him to have a high protein diet & I’ve been enjoying it too as it’s given me so much energy. This morning I made a hot cacao choc with maca powder which I loved!
    Tbs raw cacao
    Tbs brown sugar
    Tsp maca
    Sprinkle of cinnamon
    Little vanilla
    1 cup milk
    Heat and whisk in a small saucepan. YUM!

    I made it for the kids but ended up having one myself :)
