1. Mood & Metabolism
Depression can manifest as fatigue, sometimes before a person recognizes the other symptoms in themselves. Depression can also be part of a metabolic disorder, such as an underactive thyroid. Our energy levels can also be affected by our reproductive glands, and by our stress gland,s also known as our adrenal glands.
2. Food Related
If your exercise level or sleep length isn’t up to par, these can be simple and profound solutions to low energy. Many adults report getting only 6 hours of sleep per night on average, which likely isn’t enough for most. Poor stress management and sleep apnea can also negatively impact our energy levels, but both can have simple solutions through your healthcare provider.
