Have you been feeling a lack of energy? More sleepy/tired than usual? For me, this has been a major deterrent of being able to get things done. I mostly blame it on adjusting to the 6 hour time difference since I moved.
Coming to Italy one week ago and trying to get on “Italian” time has sure taken a toll on my body. The long days of walking in the heat are an energy drainer for sure, but not only that. It has taken me longer than I expected for my body to get into a rhythm of things again, and back in a routine. I like to think of there being three pillars of health: sleep, diet, and exercise. If even one of those things is out of wack, it can greatly influence the others, so just make sure you are getting enough of each!
So if you are like me, feeling fatigued, whether it be from moving and adjusting, being a single mom with a full time job, or a collage student with never ending assignments and an overnight gig, keep reading. Although you may think you know why you feel this way(lack of sleep, nutrients, etc), read below to find some advice on how you can improve your stamina/energy to help get you through even your most toughest days.
