Things you can do/take/cut out to give yourself more energy
No booze Cut down on caffeine (coffee, tea, chocolate, coke etc.) - especially near bedtime. Go to bed early to give yourself time to be really rested and relaxed, so you sleep more easily A walk every day. Plenty of fresh fruit Plenty of water Pace yourself, - don't try to do to much, so if you were doing housework say, do 15 -20 mins, then sit down and have a rest, then you'll be able to do a bit more. You can gradually increase your active time as you start feeling better. You need to balance your periods of rest and activity.
Rest before you are exhausted, - replenish your energy bank by constant top ups, don't let it reach empty.
