Who isn’t tired most days? For the most part, we live in a world in which we are constantly on the go and very infrequently take time to just relax and rest. After all, between yourself, your family, your kids, your spouse, your friends, your job, your kids’ and spouses’ lives and everything that falls in between, there’s barely time to load the dishwasher, let alone get a solid 8 hours sleep every single night. However, there is a difference between feeling tired and fatigued; being fatigued is bad for your overall health. Here are three ways to help you fight fatigue and improve your overall health.

Exercise is not only a great way to reduce stress and anxiety and to promote a healthier looking body, it’s a great way to ensure you get more sleep. When you spend time everyday exercising, you make it possible for your body to fall asleep more easily, eliminating fatigue.
