Fatigue-More Than Just a One Night Stand?


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.

Fit & Thick with Nicole Mejia

nicole mejia

As I’ve gottenĀ more and more into fitness over the past couple of years, I’ve drawn most of my inspiration and exercise ideas from social media, which is where I discovered Fit & Thick. Fit & Thick is a movement founded by Nicole Mejia that encourages women to embrace their natural physique and love their own unique body type. Although we all have a different goal to reach at the end, the underlying message is the same…and that is to love the skin we’re in. Nicole started this health and fitness company in October 2013 and since then her brand has motivated and inspired thousands of women all over the country. Last year’s Fit & Thick tour took place in 10 different cities all the way from the west coast to the east coast and they’re only going to be bigger and better this year – so ladies be on the lookout for tour updates because tickets sell out fast!
