How much do you sleep? You can be tired from too little sleep, or too much sleep. What about your diet? What you eat also plays a factor. Make sure you're getting all your nutrients. I feel better with THROTTLE MATRIX everyday, being a graduate student, I have to put in long hours of research late at night and Throttle Matrix keeps my mind focused. Have a look at their site myochem.com. I don’t know what I would do without it.

Get checked for mono. (mono isn't always so bad that you have to stay home all the time, some people get it and can still be pretty much be fine)

I accually have mono right now(had it for about a week and a half). I just go to school as long as I can. I also had the flu with it so they only found out 1/2 a week ago by a blood test.

When I had mono (senior year of high school) my doctor wouldn't let me go to 6am swim practice, but I still swam 2+ hours in the afternoon. It was kind of nice to be ordered to sleep in.
Of course, I had to be almost physically dragged to the doctor for the diagnosis- denial is a wonderful thing.


Multivitamins are bad for you(my doctor told me).

Not necessarily, water soluble vitamins are good, however, you can overdose on fat soluble vitamins.

Get your blood haemoglobin levels checked. I was tired all last week, then when I went to give blood they ound I was on the edge of anaemic. Avoid lots of sugar and caffeine. Eat slow-release carbohydrates (brown bread, high-fibre cereals). Dark green vegetables, cooked "al dente". Eat red meat, liver (don't eat non-organic liver if you're pregnant). Dark chocolate, not milk. Get to bed at a reasonable time, get up early and walk to work (or walk a few stops down the bus route). If it lasts for a week, go see your doctor.

cheese is also good. If you eat a fruit or any thing else with high fast-releasing carbohydrates, eat it with protein. See a doctor.

Keep in mind that none of us, even those that may claim to be doctors, can be trusted above your own doctor. If you feel you have a health problem, don't rely on the internet. Go see a real doctor! BTW: This reminds me of the story about a homeless man in New York that approaches a Jewish woman... He say's, "Lady, I haven't eaten in three days! I'm so very hungry." She looks him over, reaches out and pinches his cheek and replies, "You should eat something!"

Do you ever have a tingly feeling in your fingers and/or toes? If so, get to a doctor and have a B12 screen ;) Some people just don't have the carrier enzyme to extract B12 out of food or vitamins, so you could feel tired and you're likely to have tingly sensations when it gets low enough. If you live with low level for too long, the problems (which are neurological) become permanent. I have to give my girlfriend a shot once a month for it. Of course, I'm no doctor - just sharing personal experience.

Otherwise, do you do exercise frequently? Like all good meat people should? Especially cardio ;) If not - get on it. You'll sleep better and your metabolism (to make energy) will get back on track.

I'm not going to call it a health benefit because it's something we should be doing normally, and a "benefit" is outside of normal :P But, this is just one of those things to help prevent health problems later ;)

Similarly, how's your diet? Diet plays a huge role in energy levels and such ;) I've been trying to get my girlfriend (and improve myself a little) on a healthy diet. No weightless or similar diets - just a healthy balanced lifestyle diet :P

Lastly, are you sleeping well? I mean good long hours of deep REM sleep. Can you remember any dreams (even if only for a few minutes after waking up)? Even if you exercise and have a fit diet - you're brain needs sleep to coordinate everything. Funny isn't it. Muscles need rest (not necessarily sleep) - but the brain needs sleep :P Sleep on a regular cycle and try not to eat just before bed (you don't want your brain preoccupied with metabolism while sleeping).

Lastly, I don't know how this plays a role in everything. How are you waking up? I find myself much more relaxed (and easier to wake up and get energized) when I wake up to light - rather than a radio or buzzer etc. I have a wall timer set to turn on a lamp at a specific time. Of course, a regular alarm clock is a good backup :P

These things together can make a big difference.... Not as much individually though :P

Get some sleep! 8 hours a night should do it... No... You can't catch up on what you missed the night before.
