  1. By the way, it’s considered that fatigue is a consequence of overwork. In fact, the lack of physical activity can also be the cause of a constant feeling of fatigue.
    If you feel tired every day, try to include exercise in your daily routine. I’m not suggesting you to become an athlete, but you can drastically improve your life if you’ll be more active. So, start going up and down stairs rather than taking an elevator. Get off one stop earlier to walk more. When it becomes usual for you and you feel the benefits of it, go to workouts. Choose what you like. If you have a dog, run and play with your dog. If you live in a private house and you have a pool in the backyard, start using it at last. No matter what you do, it will be very beneficial for you and your health.

  2. Love this post! By the way, fatigue can also be caused by poor air quality. And air pollution isn’t just an outdoor problem. In fact, some pollutants can be up to 5x more concentrated in your home than they are outside. Dirty air conditioner filters are often the cause of it. Remember to clean them regularly for good air purification.

    1. I also recommend considering upgrading to a pleated filter with a MERV rating in the 7 to 12 range. These higher performing filters catch smaller particles like dust, pollen, and mold spores and give relief to allergy and asthma sufferers, providing better air quality.
