According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a report by the Institute of Medicine found that an estimated 836,000 to 2.5 million people in the U.S. live with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. Those living with this debilitating condition feel extreme fatigue or tiredness that cannot be explained and it sticks around even with plenty of rest.
While there’s no cure for CFS, there are various lifestyle changes you can make to find relief in the common symptoms. Those include:
If you’re living with CFS, you may find it more difficult to schedule a strenuous workout, but that doesn’t mean you should give up exercise altogether. Physical activity uses up energy and can help your body wind down. Start with simple yoga stretches and work your way up from there with cardiovascular activity and weight lifting.
2. A consistent sleep schedule
Reset your body’s circadian rhythm by following a consistent sleep schedule. Avoid napping throughout the day, even when you’re feeling most fatigued. Then, around the same time each night, prepare your body for slumber. Take a hot bath and read a chapter of a book to wind down. Then, create a cozy atmosphere for sleep with blackout curtains, warm blankets, and a white noise machine. This is a simple way to train your body to relax at the end of the day.
3. Vitamin and mineral supplementation
Following a healthy diet and taking vitamins may help reduce CFS. According to researchers at the Clinic for Infectious Diseases at the University of Novi Sad in Serbia, 38 women diagnosed with CFS who were treated with a multivitamin mineral supplement showed a significant decrease in fatigue, sleeping disorders and other symptoms commonly associated with the condition.
