Do you get an annual checkup – a thorough wellness examination – on a regular basis? Health exams and tests can detect problems before they start. In the event a problem exists, the physician can prescribe a treatment regimen.
Fatigue can be a symptom of an underlying medical condition. A physical exam is necessary to determine this.
Duke Health – a medical institute of Duke University – recommends the following for each age group:
– Under 30: a check-up every two to three years. Sexually active women, at the age of 21, should schedule a Pap smear.
– Age 30-40: a physical every other year. Baseline mammograms are recommended for women beginning at age 40.
– Age 50 and over: a yearly physical. Men and women should schedule a colonoscopy at 50 and – in most cases – reschedule every 10 years.
Exercise is often the last thing on someone’s mind who’s feeling fatigued. However, numerous studies have concluded that routine exercise is effective at boosting energy levels.
Kerry J. Steward, a professor of medicine and director of clinical and research exercise physiology at John Hopkins University School of Medicine, states:
“Exercise has consistently been linked to improved vigor and overall quality of life. People who become active have a greater sense of self-confidence. But exercise also improves the working efficiency of your heart, lungs, and muscles…(it’s) the equivalent of improving the fuel efficiency of a car. It gives you more energy for any kind of activity.”

Dehydration is when the body expels more fluids than it consumes; it is a condition that is both mentally and physically taxing. Sweating, urinating, and even breathing causes the loss of water.
Frequently drinking water throughout the day will mitigate feelings of fatigue, as well as increase our alertness and concentration. Try to get at least 7 to 9, 8-ounce servings of water per day.
- HAVE A REGULAR SLEEP REGIMEN
Inadequate and irregular sleeping patterns not only contributes to fatigue, but it also increases the risk of accidents and injury.
Experts recommend going to bed early enough to ensure a good night’s sleep. For a healthy adult, the Mayo Clinic recommends 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night. Napping for 10 to 30 minutes during the mid-day is also a terrific habit for keeping fatigue at bay.
Also, try getting into the habit of going to bed and waking up at the same time every day.
