Being drained, have a lack of energy or even having chronic fatigue can unfortunately come with having endometriosis and pelvic pain. You feel drained, don´t have any energy to do anything you just want to stay in bed sleeping. Know the feeling? A cup of coffee can do the trick for you, but as I try not to encourage you to drink coffee there are other things to try. In this post and the next you´ll have some advice what you can do to get out of that lack of energy.
It can take some energy having an illness with pain, and of course other things in your life can also be a cause for taking your energy instead of giving you positive energy. What I have learned is that it is possible to get it back, and as many things in your life, things are connected, it´s not only one thing that can be the cause. In this part I want to give you some things you can try to get your energy back.
Keep your routines
Well, if you´ve been following me for a while, this is not the first time I mention this. Having a continuing daily routine that you follow will help you to come in a better balance when it comes to your energy during the day. Going up the same time every morning (6am) and going to bed (10pm) is the best. Have you ever overslept and felt terribly heavy and tired? I think we all have. It´s our natural clock telling us that it´s not the right thing to do. I admit this is one of the hardest things for me, even though I do know that keeping my daily routines are so important feeling in good balance during the day.
Do things that give you positive energy
It is not always you can do things you love in life. We have our commitments, jobs, family, bills etc. But when it comes to things that you can choose, try this out: Do things that give you a positive feeling, a feeling of joy and buzzing excitement. For example, if you meet a friend and that person only drain you every time, maybe you should question that relationship and do something about it. Or maybe you know that walking in the nature gives you good energy, do it more often. Write a list what gives you energy and what drains you and see if you can do things that give you energy more often.
Clean up your diet
Eating a bad diet can actually drain you. Eating heavy food and too much sugar can make you tired. Yes sugar gives you energy first, but often you end up dead tired when the sugar blues shows up.
Try to eat more:
Move your body
Moving your body and exercise helps you to be less tired. Do something you like, running, dancing, work out, walking, yoga. Just move, it doesn´t matter as long as you like it. (Remember do things you like!) When you move your happy-hormones endorphins are released so you´ll feel happier at the same time!
Next week I´ll give you a great yoga exercise you can do to keep your energy up!
